It is increasingly clear that Alex Salmond will say and do anything to get us to vote for independence. For months we have heard him say that there is £1.5trillion worth of reserves remaining in the North Sea. Yet this week it emerged that this is based on dodgy figures which show a fundamental misunderstanding of the sector. This is a blatant attempt to cook the books in order to fool the Scottish people.
A campaign that is truly confident in its argument wouldn't have to behave in this manner. The man who spotted my Better Together badge on the number 38 bus and struck up a conversation about the referendum put it far better than I can: "If independence was such a good idea, why can't Alex Salmond be more honest about it?" For me, though, the most significant development hasn't been SNP members pretending to be Labour - it is Alex Salmond's independence campaign pretending to be the Better Together campaign.
Salmond thinks that suggesting a debt free start is good politics, but people understand there are consequences. If you declare yourself bankrupt you don't start anew with a fresh slate, your bad credit history follows you around for the rest of your life. The consequences for borrowing, business and mortgages would be dire.
In short, does he choose the chance of victory but risk his party, or privately concede the result in order to guarantee the unity of his base. It is a difficult judgement call that only he can make - but too many more half-measures and he may end up with the worst of both options, and the comforts of neither.
Over the next few years the tectonic plates of UK devolution will move and England's 1000 year existence will be challenged. Scotland's seismic decision to have a referendum on independence will bring a Tsunami of debate as to why the UK was created and it will become essential for England to unite and speak with one voice.
