I've got a feeling it will be a yes vote, people voting yes in the stupid idea that it fuck the English over without thinking of the consequences.

The only bright spot would be Cameron having to resign if there was a yes vote

No campaign still ahead but I concede it will be close. The SNP have run the longest election campaign in history in the build up to this.

I was arguing with a mate about this and he called me a 'traitor and a coward' that's the mentality of the shortbread tin nationalists.

People talk about muslims being radicalised by hate filled organisations but the parallels are there to what's happening here. This madness will not go away quietly after the referendum. Where have all these nutters come from ?

Was it John Terry that said, London feels like a foreign place now. I'm starting to think the same about Scotland.

I was born and brought up in England, but my old man was a Scot and all my older brothers and sister where born in Scotland.
My old man must be turning in his grave at the thought of a tosser like Salmon being in charge. I think he's a fool who lives in cloud cuckoo land, but a dangerous fool with the chaos he could cause.
I think all the yes mob are in for a rude awakening if it actually happened and found their utopian benefits wonderland turned rapidly into a nightmare.

Another problem is allowing 16 year olds to vote, WTF do they know about life to vote in such an important ballot ?

Absolutely and another Salmon ploy thinking most of them would vote for him. Silly youthful ideas removed from reality and no life experience. Many likely believe his shit.

I think it's a fantastic challenge the Scottish people should take up.
If I could vote I'd vote yes .

Judging by what I seen in Scotland earlier this year,it appears the older generation want to vote no.

I would never put people off taking up a challenge, but the impression I get is that the Yes campaign do not fully understand what the challenge is. Anyone fancy a winters run to the top of Ben Nevis in flip flops and shorts?

I do harbour a suspicion that this is exactly what the establishment thinks. The Better Together campaign couldn't have been run any worse if they tried but when you couple that with letting Alistair Darling, a man who makes John Major look charismatic, act as the figurehead you soon realise they must be trying to fuck it up.

I'd agree it's younger people (under 30) that are generally in favour. People with assets aren't generally up for the gamble. I just think it's a very big risk to take.

Bye bye Scotland and your 50 odd Labour MP's.... the thought has crossed my mind too. The dismal lacklustre campaign of dull common sense up against the hysteria of rampant nationalism.
