A new political party is being set up by a member of one of Scotland's most historic families to try to halt the growing bandwagon towards a referendum on the break-up of the United Kingdom.
Archie Stirling, a millionaire landowner, is due to unveil the cross-party movement next month in time to take part in the May elections for the Scottish Parliament...
A steering committee will be announced next month of leading figures who, like Mr Stirling, have never been involved in politics.
Mr Stirling, a businessman, said: "I believe in the Union which is good for Scotland and good for England. But I also believe we need members of the Scottish Parliament who have a proven track record in running a business or organisation.
"The principles will recognise Scotland's nationhood, commitment to the Union, and innate potential of the Scottish people."
Mr Stirling is famous for having married actress Diana Rigg, a marriage which ended when he had an affair with actress Joely Richardson.
But never mind. A new right-wing political party, led by millionaire businessmen who have never been previously involved in politics, is bound to command support at the forthcoming elections... No?
