Ian Hislop backs 'successful' union with Scotland

Private Eye editor Ian Hislop has backed what he terms "an extraordinarily successful" union between Scotland and the rest of the UK.

The Have I Got News For You regular, who has a Scottish father and English mother, said the countries would benefit more from staying together.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon: "If you lose bits of it, it works less well. [Power] becomes concentrated in the south-east of England or concentrated in one small area."
