SNP struggling to accept they lost the referendum

Alex Massie writes well on how to hear the SNP talk you would have thought they had won the referendum:

On Wednesday I raised this exact point in Scottish Questions in the Commons: when discussing the Smith Commission and the Joint Committee that is meeting:
Guy Opperman (Hexham) (Con):
Surely the key question for the Committee to take to the Scottish National party of Government is that no means no?
Minister David Mundell MP:
I certainly hope that it is now clear that the decisive result of the referendum is respected and that we move forward on behalf of all of Scotland to deliver the new devolved Scotland that everyone wants to see.
One can but hope.
