Where will Scotland finds its spies?
Should Scotland achieve independence next year, it will find itself having to create replacements for the Met Office, Passport Agency, the BBC and many others.
But since Home Secretary Theresa May has ruled out London and Edinburgh sharing intelligence as they do now, the most pressing task may be building a Scottish spy network. The Sunday Times reports that the Scottish National Party has appointed a senior civil servant to advise on setting up its own spy agency, adding that potential recruits could be found at Scots universities.
But it begs the question: what happens to the real-life James Bonds (Ian Fleming’s character has Scottish blood) now working as UK spies, who choose to work for Scotland knowing, as they do, all of London’s secrets?
