Former PM David Cameron explains how he sought the Queen's help in Scottish independence vote

 

David Cameron's revelation that he sought help from the Queen ahead of the Scottish independence vote in 2014 has caused displeasure at Buckingham Palace, a source has said.

 

The former PM told the BBC he had asked whether the Queen could "raise an eyebrow" about the prospect of Scotland voting for independence.

 

The Queen later said people should "think carefully about the future". Buckingham Palace has made no official comment on Mr Cameron's remarks.

I would think it would be sound advise for any resident of Great Britain to divest assets to another country... :coffee1:

Wouldn't it be funny if Scotland left the UK, and the Queen chose to go with them?

And is there anything biased in that?

 

How would you have interpreted that had she said it about the EU referendum?

Rather childish statement...

 

I doubt she would sell it anyway, do not forget she is Queen of Scotland by right that precedes the Act of Union (1707), and the Scottish referendum was not about Scotland becoming a republic, and if the value went down so would any taxes she pay...

It was hardly a revelation; more a confirmation of what everyone suspected to be true.

But the whole referendum was riddled with underhand, illegal tactics, from the dark money funding Better Together, the breaking of purdah by their leadership and even Ruth Davidson admitting, only moments after the poll closed, that she had seen the results of the postal votes.

Next time will hopefully be overseen by an independent, international body.

Sure. And the nationalist politicians are all as honest as the day is long, never lied and were totally beyond any reproach, personal or professional! 

 

You lost because more people voted against independence. Get over it and stop pretending it was all a big conspiracy.

She is half Scottish. The rest is a mix of German, Greek, Welsh  etc etc ............. even a tad bit English somewhere!

 

Shows exactly why she's the Queen of the UK. Her ancestors were royalty from the various main parts. Interesting the connections with European royalty that only ceased to be so politically important after WW1

By the sound of it Cameron has really let himself down with the content of this book. Too much whining and moaning and blaming others for his mistakes. Also, he should not be running down the current PM, whatever his private opinion of him may be. Deeply unpatriotic for a former PM to do that. 

 

 

 

 

Shows just what an arrogant money grabbing little knob-head he is. 

 

This is the man who created the Brexit chaos and divided the country. Now trying to cash in with his kiss and reveal type memoir <deleted>.
