Tuning up

Inspired by recent news stories in The Scotsman (a barrister in a sheriff court quoted the Cher song If I could Turn back Time in defence of client and a recent visit to the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh by Eddie Izzard asking Scotland to stay in the UK) and bearing in mind the popularity of television singing contests (X Factor and The Voice), might I suggest that the whole independence referendum is replaced by a much simpler TV singing contest between the duo Alistair Darling and George Osborne singing Please Don’t Go” by KC And the Sunshine band against Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon singing Donna Summer’s State of Independence?
