Cameron sought Queen's help over Scottish independence - BBC News

Former PM David Cameron has revealed he asked whether the Queen could "raise an eyebrow" about the prospect of Scotland voting for independence.

He told the BBC he sought help from royal officials days before the 2014 vote amid "mounting panic" he may lose.

What was discussed was not "anything that would be in any way improper... but just a raising of the eyebrow even... a quarter of an inch", he said.

The Queen later urged people to "think very carefully about the future".

The comments - made to a well-wisher outside a church on the Balmoral estate - were one of the main talking points of the referendum campaign.

At the time, the BBC's royal correspondent said the Queen's words were "more of an observation than an intervention", while Buckingham Palace said any suggestion the Queen was seeking to influence the outcome of the referendum was "categorically wrong".

Officials insisted the monarch was above politics, and the issue of Scotland's future was a matter for the people.

Two weeks after the Scottish referendum, Mr Cameron was forced to apologise after suggesting the Queen "purred down the phone" when she was told about the No result.

{{ Mind you, not many folk in Scotland at the time thought she was impartial. And her comment was widely seen as interferring in the referndum at the time.

The only surprising thing here is that Cameron actually comes out and confirms she was being political. Thats unheard of. What is said between PM and Queen is meant to be forever private. And it has not gone unnoticed by Her Majesty! }}

'David Cameron's revelation that he sought help from the Queen ahead of the Scottish independence vote in 2014 has caused displeasure at Buckingham Palace, a source has said.
A source told the BBC "it serves no-one's interests" for conversations between the PM and the Queen to be made public ."- BBC

That is what unadulterated narcissism has done to an entire country.
