Vow ar­chi­tect now sup­ports in­de­pen­dence

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

The news­pa­per edi­tor, who or­ches­trated the more pow­ers “vow” dur­ing the 2014 ref­er­en­dum, has re­vealed he now sup­ports in­de­pen­dence.

Mur­ray Foote, the ex-edi­tor of the Daily Record, was re­spon­si­ble for its front page backed by David Cameron and other UK lead­ers which promised a beefedup Scot­tish Par­lia­ment in the event of a No vote.

In a news­pa­per col­umn yes­ter­day, Mr Foote said Brexit had made him change his mind on the in­de­pen­dence ques­tion, and the UK gov­ern­ment had shown “bla­tant con­tempt” for de­vo­lu­tion. First Min­is­ter Ni­cola Stur­geon said his change of heart was “hugely sig­nif­i­cant”.
