'CAN we do it this time?" This is the question running through the heads of delegates heading home from the Scottish Nationalist Party conference in Perth. They ought to be bursting with optimism. The conference was a considerable success: nationalists know they are on the people's side regarding the Iraq war and Trident renewal. Their leader delivered an inspirational speech, and Cardinal Keith O'Brien sped the homeward journey with an astonishing, unequivocal endorsement of independence.
