Yeah, 20/30,000 less readers for the Daily Record since January.


I don't discount that the editorial stance of some of these publications may be a contributory factor to their decline in sales, but that's all it is - a contributory factor - and there are other contributory factors such as cost and availability of alternative news sources.



this is just the start. we will remember them.


Is there going to be some sort of witch hunt after the vote?
Backs against the wall?

You do know what your attitude reeks of don't you?

Can't you accept that some people simply have a different, reasoned opinion to you and that they aren't 'traitors' who deserve some sort of vengeful reckoning after the vote?

With attitudes like yours, and there seems to be a few - on both sides - I genuinely fear for Scotland's future.

Ezekiel 25:17."The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

Are you seriously trying to quote scripture to justify some sort of vengeance on the 'No' voters?
Scripture in a political debate?
Using religious dogma to justify a witch hunt?

The No voters are safe, we cant help them anymore. Poor souls will have to live with the knowledge for the rest of their lives that they sold their own Country and family out to London rule when they had a chance to take their own future into their own hands. That is surely punishment enough.

It's the Liars, the masters of spin, that will be on the receiving end for years to come...one by one they will fall from their Ivory Towers....Touchable!!....each and every one of them.

Oh My, looks like the Campaign is starting to bite already. These people who have chosen to side with Westminster have backed the wrong horse. regardless of the result on Friday we will bury them for their treachery.

Anoth er month and another set of declining sales among daily and Sunday newspapers in Scotland


Some of the employees of those newspapers would more than likely vote " Yes ". So when you say " bury them " you have no concerns about those employees loosing their jobs ?

Very strange thinking indeed.

Lots hope some of those employees are reading this and then change their minds and vote " No "
You are fast becoming an asset to the " No " campaign with your way of thinking.

So according to you all 'No' voters are wrong. No matter what the reason why they're voting against, they're just all wrong, they're damned souls doomed to wander Scotland? Seriously? And what do you mean that they're safe but you can't help them anymore? What, are you going to send every 'No' voter you know to Coventry? Are you going to ostracise them, ignore them, walk around them in the street? You want a divided, embittered Scotland, is that it?

Well, that's despicable. Nothing nowadays is as vile as the scribblings of Julius Streicher. Bad as the putrid dribblings of the Star and the Sun/News of the World are/were, they are nowhere near that bad. Words fail me.

I live in Scotland's capital City, Edinburgh, the BBC have been TRAGIC in their reporting of the referendum. Thankfully Scottish people are smart and we see through it all! We have seen right through it and stand on the verge of freeing ourself from the World's war machine. Scotland is a left of Centre country, Socialism kinda, is our way. We don't judge, we just want free, but we do find these things funny here



As the world tried to obtain the Nuclear option we vote to free our soil of Nuclear weapons



Here are the polls on the ground, all I see is a 70% for #Yes



This is probably the worst we have had to put up with



Come Thursday night we are OUT! I am confident. I write 10 articles a day. If there is a lie I find it, if there is a Myth I will destroy it. And many are doing the same.

Socialist Tommy Sheridan, brilliant lad has done 112 meetings now, all over Scotland, changing minds, undecided to yes.



This is a Podcast, 7 minutes long to my brothers and sisters in Scotland, we MUST know why we vote #HopeOverFear



Saorsa don Alba

BBC reported 300 people.
There were at least 2,000 people there.
We have had several occasions where Yes voters have been attacked by Unionist/No voters.

This was Saturday night at the Usher Hall in my City Edinburgh..Brilliant night!

I think we have mate. Cameron didn't come here last Thursday as a planned visit, they know the polls, so does Salmond.
Westminster know Cameron should have put DevoMax on the ballot paper. Now we are left with one choice...

Goodbye Tory rule, Thatcherism, Austerity, cuts to public sector, and the only banks that will close will be the food banks.
We have till 2016 to figure it all out and Westminster MUST play ball as Scotland take with us 1/4 of the UK dept. For us to pay this, they have to let us use the Pound, same as they do other countries

Once again: in the highly unlikely event of Scotland being allowed to keep the pound what's the point? You'd have NO control over it!

I will be voting NO.

I can't see how people could be so stupid as to vote yes, when they don't know what currency they will get or any other details.

All of us will be poorer in the event of a yes vote especially the citizens of Scotland.




Read my last post above this. We must have a currency, we have to pay 1/4 of UK debt over 15 years I think from the White Paper. I appreciate and respect your opinion, but I don't understand ANYONE who want's to keep what the English people are protesting against, I am just saying buddy, it will be a yes and your reason is a bit short sighted.
In 50 years we are all dead, Scotland, our kids and their kids won't be

My biggest concern are people voting for the here and now and selfishly, not saying you are mate
And what proof do you have to say Scottish people will be poorer? Proof, not just a statement

This here is something I just can't get my head around.

32 Other papers are Pro-Union?
Aww come on, that's just not true. Many have stayed in the middle.
The Record has been poor.
This was from today's Scottish Sun, who I think will throw a yes hat into the ring Wednesday/Thursday



While I am at it for those who can't get their heads around the currency issue...

The Pound Scots was the unit of currency in the Kingdom of Scotland before the Kingdom unified with the Kingdom of England in 1770



People are falling for the same lies they accuse others off doing. We can, we will, and it will be superb.
Peace

He was on the politics show (BBC) on Sunday. Nice how he believes Scotland wants a socialist government when the last time around he garnered 8,000 votes only.

Actually, in this case the BBC did show bias because the interview with him can't have done many favours to the moderate part of the Yes campaign.
