SCOTLAND has welcomed a letter urging the country to reject independence, signed by a collection of fancy English celebrities. The letter was signed by Dame Judy Dench, Helena Bonham Carter, Simon Callow and 200 other absolutely spiffing famous people who probably have really nice old houses, covered in ivy.

The list of "12 things that the £1,400 UK dividend could buy" is illustrated by a colourful assortment of Lego characters. It attracted criticism on Thursday for patronising Scots with suggestions including: "Scoff 280 hot dogs at the Edinburgh Festival".
