‘Please stay’ was the title under which The Scotsman published a letter from Peter Riddell on the forthcoming Scottish referendum on whether to leave the United Kingdom. In it he likens the English attitude to that of a husband who is vaguely aware of his wife’s unhappiness, but who can’t bring himself to believe that she would ever leave him.
