I can hold back no longer….
I predict a ‘No’ vote of anything up to 5%.
I am not sure that this will actually put away the demands for independence for ‘a generation’ as the Yes campaign seem more concerned with matters of the heart over those of the head, and that’s a tricky thing to placate. I don’t think the Yes campaign will be at all content to settle down quietly.
I don’t understand the point of an independent Scotland. It doesn’t strike me as particularly independent with a proposed currency union, the Queen, the EU and probably Eastenders also. (Although the Monarchy will surely be jettisoned when the older voters die off?)
The ‘No’ campaign has been absolutely useless, and New Labour and David Cameron should be absolutely ashamed that they ever let this particular cat out of the bag. They have potentially split the UK forever.
