image for Scotland independence would raise the 'happy index' in the UK

Scientists claimed today that Scotland leaving the UK will increase levels of happiness in the UK by up to 0.3%.

The index is based on a complicated Carol Vorderman type sum, involving hours of sunlight multiplied by population divided by ginger hair divided by hours spent in the pub.


Famous grumpy scots include Gordon Brown, Rod Stewart and Kenny Dalglish.

When asked for an official response a spokesman for the government said "Bugger off - we no longer comment on stories about those miserable jocknies over the border"
