"Andy McNab was one of the signatories to the 200-strong letter calling on Scots to stay in the UK. Sean Connery is a long time supporter of independence, although admittedly he doesn’t actually live there anymore.
McNab should have this one in the bag. It’s a battle between a real SAS sergeant and an imaginary spy. McNab can actually kill you. Not imaginary kill you. Actually kill you. He was doing covert ops in the Far East while Connery was making Highlander 2: The Quickening.
But Connery was James Bond. Not just a James Bond - the James Bond. The original man who men wanted to be and women wanted to be with. In the 60s, when Britain was cool, he was the coolest thing about it. Connery wins, hands down, regardless of the fact his licence to kill is fictional and he doesn’t actually live in Scotland. In any competition between Sean Connery and someone else, Sean Connery wins.”
Neither of these two live in Scotland, so I’m not swayed by the presence of either of them in either camp; although I’m just saying that I haven’t heard any compelling Yes arguments about defence yet apart from the fact that if New Zealand can have an army with some trimmings, so can we.
