Bob Servant actor Brian Cox: English and Scottish independence

Actor Brian Cox, playing a would-be MP in a BBC4 comedy, claimed "our political system is failing us daily", and he predicted Scottish independence could prompt an independent England outside the UK.

He also spoke about working in New York, due to his claim about the lack of a British film industry, and how he would struggle to go to acting school and pay fees today.

The final part of Bob Servant Independent - a fictional fight for the seat of Broughty Ferry - goes out on Wednesday evening and previous editions can be seen on BBC iPlayer.
