I was going to write a post criticising the Liberal "Democrats" for the position taken at their conference yesterday.
I was going to, and then I read Will's post, which makes the point far more eloquently than I could, so I won't bother.
Except to say this. The SNP's preferred wording for a referendum is not the only option. If the Lib Dems wanted a referendum - as some of their membership apparently wished though seem to have changed their minds - couldn't they have negotiated a question with the SNP? I seem to remember a three-option question was - and remains - on the table.
Then again, wouldn't that mean being democratic? Something it appears that the Lib Dems are pretty incapable of. And that's where Will's terrific post comes in.
