Johnson can thwart the SNP if he offers Scotland single market access | Simon Jenkins
If the Scottish economy aligned with the EU, it could bring financial benefits and slow down the independence movementIn two weeks’ time Scotland will likely re-elect a government committed to dismantling the United Kingdom. It has been doing so, overwhelmingly, since 2007. Though the Scottish people did not say yes to independence in 2014, the past year’s opinion polls suggest that they would do so now, the margin in favour sometimes as high as 12 percentage points. The prospect seems to leave London frozen into inertia. Boris Johnson has merely set up and then sacked a Downing Street “union unit”.It is 300 years since Scotland was last independent, sold into union with England, wrote Robbie Burns, by “a parcel of rogues as a nation”. The union achieved good and ill but it has clearly failed to gel. Whether English people – or even some Scottish expatriates – are against independence is not the issue. Self-determination means what it says. The 2011 census suggested that 83% of Scots feel some Scottish identity, while 62% proclaim themselves “Scottish only”. If they want to rule themselves, England must eat post-imperial humble pie and accept. It is nothing to do with economics but, as Johnson said of Brexit, about sovereignty. Continue reading...

Israel confirms Syrian missile landed near Dimona nuclear reactor
Military acknowledges that air defences failed to intercept surface-to-air missile fired overnight Israel has acknowledged that its air defences failed to intercept a missile fired from Syria overnight that traversed 200km of its highly protected airspace and landed near the country’s secretive Dimona nuclear reactor.The surface-to-air missile was believed to have been fired by Syrian air defences against Israeli jets that were bombing a site near Damascus, but the path it flew initially led to speculation that the country’s most sensitive site may have instead been a target.

Mandarins reveal virtually endless string of virtual meetings with Greensill | John Crace
Top civil servants reveal they had 10 discussions with company before it finally took no for an answerIf only David Cameron had been able to follow the rules then a lot of the trouble around Greensill Capital could have been averted. And the rules are that you go straight to the top and message Boris Johnson directly – almost everyone except me seems to have his mobile number – and he will fix things right away. After all it worked well enough for James Dyson. Only the problem for Dave was that he and Boris Johnson have history. Put simply Boris loathes Cameron: he still can’t forgive him for getting a better degree and becoming prime minister before him.So the usual lobbying channels weren’t open to Dave, which meant he had to move lower down the food chain and text Rishi Sunak and junior Treasury minister John Glen instead. After which things started to badly unravel, culminating in no fewer than six different inquiries into Tory sleaze and cronyism. One of which is being conducted by the public accounts committee and on Thursday morning was taking evidence from the two top civil servants at the Treasury – the permanent secretary, Tom Scholar, and his deputy, the second permanent secretary, Charles Roxburgh – who had been delegated to deal with the donkey work of Cameron’s lobbying activities.
