Cameron and the EU have already lost

No matter how the Scots vote, it's already clear that British Prime Minister David Cameron and a short-sighted EU are the losers, the liberal business daily Jornal de Negócios comments: "All the hysteria about the Scottish referendum proves that Europe is not only incapable of fighting the economic crisis and preserving democratic values, but also of understanding the rising tide of nationalisms. ... Political mediocrity rules the day. This became more than apparent during the 'Scottish campaign' [with which the unionists around Cameron aimed to bring the Scots' on to their side in recent days]. ... David Cameron's desperate campaign with its belated and empty promises has thus turned him into a loser. If Cameron is defeated he will be the one who allowed the UK to collapse. If he wins he will be the one who gave Scotland far too much power within the UK. But the biggest loser is Europe's short-sighted policy."
