Prime Minister Tony Blair has dismissed a top businessman's support for the Scottish National Party as "self-indulgent and absurd".
Sir George Mathewson, former Royal Bank of Scotland chairman, announced his support in a letter to The Scotsman.
He backed SNP leader Alex Salmond for first minister and argued that the SNP and independence could liberate Scotland from a "dependency culture".
Furthermore, the Prime Minister is in no position to call anyone else 'self-indulgent'.
