    On the referendum question, Salmond appeared to say that a two-question referendum was possible. What could there be on the second ballot paper if not a question on fiscal autonomy?As for inevitability, few things ever are. But consider the context. Unionism in England is visibly declining. English, as opposed to confused Anglo-British, identity is on the rise. Support for an English parliament, while still at a low level, is much increased. A sense of grievance, justified or not, is on the rise in England, even if it hasn’t yet matched the equally unlovely sentiments and made-up history commonly found here. Unionist feeling still exists among English politicians, but that won’t long survive if the people hold a different view. One major national party has a clear electoral interest in disunion, even if they remain Unionists for the present. There seems to me to be good reason to suppose that the day will come soon enough when very few people will care whether the Union lives or dies. At that point, a repeat of the Velvet Divorce is more than likely.
