I thought Spain wanted a no vote. If it's yes then the Catalans will want a vote on their independence.

it'll be a helluva surprise if scotland turns out to be a nett contributer given that at present it's a nett receiver.

Bigotry and one side reporting is terrible and unfair. The problem is that we tend to ignore it unless we are the victims.
As for the referendum, I don't know why some are so worried. It's democracy at its best. And democracy should always be celebrated not feared. I hope the Scottish people vote en masse and choose what they think is best without letting the scaremongering affect them.

My random Google Banner Ad is currently showing an advert for "Better Together" with pictures of Maggie Thatcher, John Major and David Cameron on it. If that doesn't encourage people to vote YES then I don't know what will.

That's enough to put people off for life Iris. Margaret Thatcher I personally have no problem with but I agree in certain quarters she is hated. I thought she was a good PM but then I'm only one voice.

Major the Unfaithful is no advert for anything IMO. They may as well have put Edwina Curry in the next picture. Cameron, seems to be rapidly earning a name for himself whereby the last one to speak to him gets the say. This man is also no advert. Lied about immigration. Lied about the economy. Lied about a referendum on the EU, lied about this renegotiation deal prior to aforementioned referendum. Now he's dithering about the greatest terror threat we have yet faced. As you say, it would probably make Alistair Darling vote Yes

what's disgraceful is that it's come to this at all and it won't all stop come friday morning. this is not democracy at its finest. this is how things play out in places we call the third world.

This is the first time today I have checked the Press and not looked at T.V Yet. This way saves all the monotony of watching the famous clock swinging left or right.

It is very far from being "all over" I'm afraid. The Better Together shower are going to HAVE to deliver all the extras they have promised. Out of a population of 5 million, 2 million have expressed their deep dissatisfaction and that is not an insignificant minority. The Better Togethers have zero room for complacency and these results would not reassure me, in fact quite the opposite.

Iris, isn't there a clause that the Scots have to wait 30 years to have a Referendum again?

AnnaEsse, thanks, there has been a bit of reporting on the News channels and controversy that Scots not living in Scotland could not vote, and those resident ,yet not born Scots living there could. I think for such an important matter, outside marshalls should have been appointed to stop any intimidation and ensure everyone eligible had a vote.

There's video footage doing the rounds, which doesn't actually look fake, of a big pile of YES votes on a table, but labelled NO. There's also footage of a teller moving a big pile of votes from one pile to another. It may not necessarily be evidence of fraud but it doesn't look good.

Alex Salmond Quits After Scotland Votes No

Post  Angelina on Fri 19 Sep - 16:28

http://news.sky.com/story/1338759/alex-salmond-quits-after-scotland-votes-no

Alex Salmond is stepping down as Scotland's First Minister and SNP leader after his country voted against independence.

He said it was the "privilege of my life to serve as first minister".

He added: "We lost the referendum vote but Scotland can still carry the political initiative.

"Scotland can still emerge as the real winner. My time is nearly over."

David Cameron has promised new powers for Scotland as 55% of the country voted to reject independence. with 45% in favour of going it alone.

Mr Salmond said: "There are 1.6 million people who made a choice for independence.

"I think the 1.6 million people will speak and speak loud if there is a retreat from those commitments."
