Whatever the result, it's not great that at least 40-45% of Scots don't want to part of the UK.

I'm not sure that being part of the UK is something that you're average Scot would be passionate about tbf. National identity and pride is one thing. But being part of a group of four doesn't really stir the loins. If they've weighed up the pro's and con's and think they'll be better off alone, good riddance luck to 'em.

You can bet though, a fair % of 'Yes' votes will be coming from thicko's who don't have the capacity to think logically, and will vote purely on a basis of being disassociated with us south of the border. Dangerous times...

Most of the Jocks I work with are No voters who reckon the majority of the yes vote comes from the under 18's who don't know their arse from their elbow.

Watching the Andrew Mar show this morning - there are so many important fundamental questions that haven't been even addressed yet, I just can't see the yes vote happening!! If Scotland did vote yes, imho, it would just be a momentary vote of the heart from the Scots masses without really thinking the whole shebang through.

even if the scots all vote yes just because there has been a referendum doesnt meant it will change, we may get change SOON, or to use JBs favourite term IMMINENTLY.

Has Salmon even addressed things like health care, defence, pensions, the EU, currency? Fundamental issues that seems to have got lost in the malaise of pro Salmon arse-licking by the kilted masses!!

They are in love with idea of FREEDOM! and many in the YES camp havent even thought it through what it actually means for Scotland' s future as lets face the last time they gained there freedom in 1314 they never prospered at all and Scotland was a very poor place while England ruled the waves.

I support the idea of national identity for all the home nations. I would rather be known as English having been born in England and have an English national anthem rather than God Save The Queen which is the British Anthem and constantly having to answer British when asked for nationality. Hell lets have an English Parliment too cheers cheers

Could go either way.

The debate seems to revolve around economics, jobs and currency.

If I was Scottish, those factors would be secondary to the wish for complete self determination, not to be controlled from elsewhere.

As soon as it dawns on the jocks that THEY will have to pay their own way now they will vote no.

An Orange order march through Edinburgh yesterday!! Although I'm not sure if it was anything to do with the whole independence thing - if it was, the last thing we want is for religion to be brought into the debate, FFS!

I have read on numerous news sources that families and various communities are at each others throats over the yes/no debate. If Scotland votes no and the yes side of the voters feel as if they have been scare mongered and conned onto staying within the union, I fear there could be a lot of angry people ready to vent their anger and veiled hate of the English (come on, let's be honest here - how much of this is a pure vote against the sassenachs? How many voters and sat down and thought through the basic fundamental consequences of independence?)in various ways - violence is a very real threat imho.

A piece by one independent analyst even suggests another possible NI? Although unlikely, a scary thought none-the-less!

Pfwa, I don't know. A 300 year old success story thrown away for 40 years of oil?

Its not their oil, it is Britain's oil so they can feck off with the idea that they will only benefit from it after independence!

The SNP are in power because they actually do something for the community, replacing Labour. Up here there is an alternative to Labour, there is virtually no Tory party.

The Orange Order, God help us, was marching to support the No campaign, The Reverend P's favourite word.

I find it sort of hypocritical of Brian Cox, Andy Murray and Sean Connery amongst other high profile jocks can be so pro independence yet wont move back to scotland due to tax.

Its kind of a STFU movement they need to adapt

The No campaign have, in typical arrogant Labour fashion, assumed that it is a done deal.

Unfortunately for them it is not and they are desperately making up shit to try and discredit the yes campaign. The yes campaign then points this out.

If they do go, David Cameron will have the unwanted legacy of being the PM who allowed the Union to break up.

What will happen to the rest of the UK should Scotland go and what would the UK be called. I have heard that it may be called the United Kingdom of Britain and Northern Ireland.

What damage will be done to the UK's standing within the World and European stage (NATO and the UN roles).

Regarding Trident, some experts are suggesting it should not be moved to Plymouth, as Plymouth has a large population mass living right next to Devonport Dockyard. Apparently, Trident has got to be based a great distance from any large population mass.

The SNP believe and maintain that they will be efficient and see economic growth and tout smaller Countries as examples. Then there is the question of what currency they use, Osborne has said they can't share the pound and there are now concerns regarding the EU and Scottish independence. I believe Spain may put the boot in on that idea.

So what happens to all the Public Sector jobs that are in Scotland. Do they vanish and put people out of work, will private sector jobs be hit also (two Banks have said they will leave the Country)

Are the SNP the blind leading the blind ?.
