Ashcroft, Alexander and independence

It seems that Pat Kane’s video of Brian Ashcroft has hit the headlines:

WENDY ALEXANDER has been dealt an embarrassing blow in her first week as
Scottish Labour leader after footage emerged of her husband making a case
for independence.

Professor Brian Ashcroft, policy director of the pro-Union economic
think-tank, the Fraser of Allander Institute, was filmed arguing that
Scotland would be more prosperous as a separate country than having full
tax-raising powers as part of the UK. (Sunday Times)

Update 29 August: Pat reports that the clip is now available on youtube:
