- reinstate grammar schools
- increase defence spending by 40 per cent
- bring back Pullman trains
- reinstate the Radio 4 theme
These policies have no logical connection. Just because you support British withdrawal from the EU there is no reason you cannot support comprehensive schools, gay marriage or contemporary rolling stock design.
What unites them, of course, is that they are issues that unite angry white men - particularly angry white men of a certain age.
But there is another issue that appeals to this demographic.
Unionism used to be the Conservatives' trump card. It won them a majority of Scottish MPs in the 1950s, which is something that it is near impossible to believe now.
Not only is Unionism less effective as a policy: the Conservatives are not that keen on it any more, as I once observed when looking at King's Lynn Conservative Club.
And if you ask an angry white man of a certain age what he thinks of the Union he will most likely tell you (if he lives in Southern England, as so many of them do) that he is fed up with paying for services in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales that are better than the ones he can use himself.
If the Scots want independence, he will likely continue, let them have it and see how much they enjoy paying the full cost of those services themselves.
Which makes me wonder how long the UK will stay in UKIP. Their target voters are not keen on it at all.
