= Confidential/Secret
 The modern campaign for Scottish independence 
and the methods used by the British State to oppose it...
In 1974 the UK Tory Government under Edward Heath commissioned a report by Treasury department civil servant Gavin McCrone, asking him to look into the economic viability of an independent Scotland. His findings were incendiary, and after Heath left office the McCrone Report was classified as secret by the incoming Labour government under James Callaghan. The report's conclusions were so dangerous that it was designated secret and hidden for thirty years before a Freedom of Information request forced the UK Government to reveal its contents.

Newsnet Scotland (now relaunched as copied the entire report, together with an introductory letter written in 1975 by its author Gavin McCrone, and published it that Scots may read for themselves how successive Labour and Conservative Governments hid the truth for decades.

Publication of the McCrone report by Newsnet Scotland follows an admission [see also] by former Labour Chancellor Denis Healey that the Labour Government of the 1970s deliberately hid the true value of Scottish oil in order to thwart support for the SNP.  

As introduction to the McCrone Report, Newsnet Scotland published in 2012 the above short video (2 mins 42 secs) - narrated by actor David Hayman - which summarises the report's conclusions.
"It must be concluded therefore that large revenues and balance of payments gains would indeed accrue to a Scottish Government in the event of independence...Undoubtedly this would banish any anxieties the Government might have had about its budgetary position or its balance of payments.  The country would tend to be in chronic surplus to a quite embarrassing degree and its currency would become the hardest in Europe, with the exception perhaps of the Norwegian kroner."(The McCrone Report, 1975)

Scottish Independence Referendum 2014: British State data-collection and psychops: How & Who. (Caltonjock)

Plausible Paranoia: 
How Westminster hoodwinked the Scots in 1707 and 2014 and their preparedness to do so again 

Part 6: 
The Secret Service Implements 
its Denial Strategy Plan

...2012: The gathering at Abbotsford
The, “Yes” [pro-independence] campaign faced the might of The Abbotsford Team which was backed by the entire UK political system, the civil service, media barons, commercial and financial institutions, The City of London, Heads of State and senior politicians of countries world wide and just about anyone or anything that David Cameron and Sir Jeremy Heywood could muster in their mission to deny Scotland it’s rightful place in the world as an independent country.

At the beginning of 2012, (at his house in Edinburgh) former Labour Chancellor Alistair Darling, David McLetchie (late Scottish Tory Leader), David Cameron’s Director of Political Strategy Andrew Cooper, Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander, Shadow Defence Secretary Jim Murphy, and special adviser to Alistair Carmichael, Euan Roddin (that’s right the same person that “leaked” the infamous “Frenchgate” memo the week before the 2015 General Election), met in secret to “prepare a battle plan” which when enacted would “kill off, Alex Salmond and the Scottish National Party once and for all time”.

Those in attendance readily agreed that the only way to defeat Alex Salmond was to put their party political differences aside and to join forces so that he would be faced with the full might of the “Union”.  The “Abbotsford Agreement” was born.

It was agreed the campaign would be coordinated through the Prime Ministers Office in London, but Mr Cameron would be kept clear of any overt campaign activities.

Darling, considered to be more than a match for Alex Salmond would front the tri-party campaign and it would be run by Scottish based politicians.

It was further agreed each political party would also be free to run their own pro-union campaign.

The meeting was then briefed that former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, had declined an invitation to join the “Better Together” campaign.

He would restrict his role to the Labour Party’s own anti-independence campaign, being reluctant to share a platform with the Tories and Lib Dems.

JK Rowling (author) had committed significant funds to Gordon Brown’s campaign.

Unlimited finance was available, £4 million plus, including significant donations from Tory backers and senior financiers...
