Independence - business leaders come out in support
Another day, another chapter in the "so, would independence be good for business?" debate.
This morning Business for Scotland (the clue is in the title) released a letter with 200 signatories saying that a Yes vote on September 18 would be good news for the Scottish economy.
That followed a letter yesterday organised by Keith Cochrane, the chief executive of the engineering company, Weir Group, which brought together 130 business people who said that the case for independence "had not been made".
That letter argued it was better to stay within the UK.

Philip Clarke tells BBC of 'enormous relief' as he quits Tesco
Tesco is Britain's biggest and most profitable retailer. To be its chief executive is to be in a job about which everyone has an opinion.
Messy aisles. Missing products. Unhelpful staff. "Sort it out" would come the cry from millions of customers.
Is this the death knell for free high street banking?
The Competition and Markets Authority's (CMA) decision to launch an inquiry into the UK's banks may finally get us to the answer - does the present structure work for customers and businesses?
