I live in a place called Inverclyde, it was destroyed by the Thatcher government that we didnt ask for or want. Each and every industry was closed peice by peice, the ship building industry was destroyed. Towns are run down with insufficient housing and there are next to zero jobs for people leaving the youth with nothing to look forward to. I dont know whats coming but im ready to take it on and hope that things improve,

Im quite patriotic and love my roots and history.. however i would like people to realise that Scotland isnt all Edinburgh and Glasgow, these are the amazing places you see and hear about but there are places where people feel forgotten and these are the people whom i hope tomorrow get the answer they want.

Why would a country not take its freedom by putting a cross in a box?
No war, peace and slagging. And i feel that people have seen through these guys on these televised debates.. and the BBC, well the coverage has been shocking. Good day all

Mike

Good for you Mike. I myself am in support of the yes vote and believe these movements speak loudly of the times we are in and of what the people want and desire in each specific movement. Regardless of the outcome, at least you voted on something that is one of the most important votes one gets to make if it arises in their lifetime. They fear a yes vote because they believe it will give momentum and further will to other movements but fail to see a no vote will also strengthen resolve and desire to be more effective.

I don't see these movements slowing down either way, I see them picking up steam.

ETA: Good luck on the results ... we will see later this evening!

Although I can't vote, I would be voting yes. I do have Scottish ancestry, lived in Aberdeen for 10 years, married a Scott and have 2 daughters who are Scottish by birth. I have for the last 25 years held the belief and have dreamt of an independent Scotland.

I would like to add this, to quash any nonsense about any sort of in fighting going on by the Scottish people themselves.

I have a friend in Edinburgh. Both her and her son are voting YES. She has arranged for a taxi to take 4 other elderly folk who live in her building to go and vote. Some are no's others are YES. There is no animosity between them. They respect each others stance, and will bear no grudges whichever side wins.

On the other hand. If the yes vote does indeed win, it is south of the border that I can see trouble brewing.......we shall see...

I was 1st in line at my polling station & voted Yes also. I live in the wealthiest city in Scotland with the most amount of millionaires per populace than anywhere in the UK, we also have the lowest unemployment of anywhere yet there are still foodbanks required for those who are not well off and living below the poverty line. Madness.

I know where you are!!!!!


Good for you. I think it's the more northern and Highlands and Islands votes that will determine the result of this referendum........and the further away from Westminster those folk are.....the more chance of a YES vote....

A No vote is coming and you should be mighty relieved that it is , the alternative is future of uncertainty and IMF bailouts when you find Salmons sums don't add up.

Yes I agree about the movements

the media has been completely 1 sided and these movements have grown by word of mouth and social media with no interferance. There was an awesome night time rally the other night in my area and a peace march last night. Its going on all over Scotland

a reply to: AllSourceIntel



this was at a park near my home. The folk have torches and are attempting to make a "yes" shape

You really haven't done your homework have you? Just soaking up BBC propaganda.

You talk of IMF bailouts..............erm..........the loans the UK have managed to procure over the years have all been done on the back of the oil.
But let's not go there hey

Do you think we'll be going through the whole whinging about 'not being free' by half of Scots, over and over again after a no vote?
Will we move on chasing a fairer union for the future of all of us, or will those wanting independence just ignore the democratic vote by their country and keep on whinging until they get another vote ten years from now?

As with all things in life there is risk .. but in voting for independence your on the path to a better future for yourselves and your children .. stand firm in your belief and the knowledge your making the right choice ..

So because some of the democratic voters want to use their democracy to gain independance they are whingers?

Good point,

You really haven't done your homework have you? Just soaking up BBC propaganda.



The think tank will publish a briefing tomorrow asserting that an independent Scotland would need to issue about £9n worth of bonds to finance its deficit. It suggests such bonds would have to offer generous growth to attract investors, and concludes that the Scottish government is more likely to be forced to seek a bailout from the IMF and would be expected to repay the debt within five years, meaning severe cuts in public spending.

So yeah shoot the messenger

Did you do your homework or is that just your belief ?

Nope, I'm asking will those whinging 'freedom' finally accept a democratic no vote and move on, or will we just have the same old same old in 10 years time?
Not a difficult question I hope?

OK, you deflect again from the obvious question so I'll ask you directly, will you accept a democratic no vote and move on to improve the union together, without calling for independence again in a few years time?
