Willie Rennie looks back on the Scottish referendum campaign

The leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats is interviewed in the Sunday Herald:
Listening to Willie Rennie recall the Better Together campaign is like eavesdropping on a therapy session as he wrestles with a half-buried trauma. 
The misery simply pours out of him. The No side was “shambolic in its development”, groans the Scottish LibDem leader, its output “dark”, its operations “secretive”, people’s confidence was “crushed” by the lack of information. 
Yes, they won in the end, but how they won “didn’t make us feel very good about it”. 
And as for the aftermath, David Cameron was “despicable,” he spits. “I thought he did more damage in the general election campaign to the Union than the SNP had done for years.”
