hi a mate of mine got a place in scotland so he will get a vote but does not live there all the time i dont think it will make a great difference if they get the vote or not i dont think they will be any better off ,we wont be worse off this side of the boarder but who knows time will tell england might be the next for own rule along with ireland and wales  , its sounds to complicated to me so i would always vote for a UNITED KINGDOM  :)

My gut feeling is that I really can't see the majority of Scots voting 'YES'. I watched quite a lot of the recent European Athletics Championships and there was obviously great cameraderie amongst the GB and NI athletes with an unprecedented haul of medals. I suspect that is the general feeling north of the border but if I'm wrong I shall eat my sporran.

I'm also glad that Gt. Britain will remain together. I must say that although I'm not a fan of Gordon Brown, he gave one of the best speeches I've ever heard the other day in favour of staying together. It will be interesting to see what concessions Westminster gives to Scotland as a 'reward' for this result.

Unfortunately, Greeny, the independence referendum became completely sidetracked by issues that were largely bi-products. Economics, state government and how it is administered, the quality of health care provision, these were all turned into a debate bordering on conspiracy theories. The accountabilty of MPs, what had that to do with a referendum about independence? - absolutely nothing, but it got wedged in there. Regional government? - just a sop. Successful government surely needs to be at the centre of any nation and not scattered about - that's what local government was set up to do.

If you didn't see it, this is where Gordon Brown "found his mojo" once again....

Would'n't you just know it. The parties are now squabbling over the 'concessions' promised as sweeteners to the Scots to stay loyal and nobody seems to be able to solve the problem of Scottish MPs voting on English issues. They remind me of a bunch of schoolkids instead of responsible adults.
