A 90-day patriot

One question before the independence vote on Thursday is where is the SNP’s most famous celebrity supporter? You might expect Sean Connery to be out rousing the faithful but so far there has been no sign of him. But is he planning a James Bond-style dramatic late entry into the campaign?

Well, the Edinburgh Evening News tracked down his brother to ask and this is the reply they got:

‘There’s only a certain amount of days Sean can be in the country for tax reasons, so I know that he intends to use them wisely.’

It is good to know what Sir Sean thinks is a wise use of his time.

Thanks to Andy Sparrow of the Guardian for reporting. ​
