question:
is this independence or a sample of the technique of balkanisation and divide and conquer?

PS
While Brits ( and the peeps of the `insert currently used imperialist country army tool` here) are great, I don't think the Bavarian bloodline Coburg Sacks Gotha / Windsor Imperialism has done anyone but the One Percenters any good. The new tactic is rule by socio/ fascist corporatism, which can be cloaked in what appears to be independence, and allows for peep control, and the resource rape by the technocracy.

PPS
GO Yes


You could have a point. Look at what happened when England pulled out of Barbados, Jamaica, South Carolina (to a lesser extent), Uganda, Kenya, India....its like they toot for "independence" and then destabilize the country, almost like letting it break itself so they can come back the victor.

England doing England 21st Century Style.

They say that it is 99% certen that the Scottish people are going to say NO.

That is the latest News from Norway.



Can you give any links to that figure please, we here in the UK are unaware of any indication of anything.

Yes to Scotland! Scotland today, California tomorrow.


The US will never EVER let another secede happen EVER again. They will go rogue suicide bomber first.

Has anyone seen anything real about the numbers? So far, it looks like I can only find opinion and guesswork.

Something smells very fishy to me.

They have taken in or are in the process of taking in all the ballot boxes. Then they have to count how many votes were cast. Then they separate yes and no votes.

To my knowledge, the actual count, the last step in the process, has not started yet.

They (the BBC) say there was some kind of blockage on the A9 motorway that is interfering with ballot box transport in one area, I believe.

they are probably running with the quote from the president of YouGov Peter Kellner. It is in the Guardian link I posted.



Pollster Peter Kellner: "At risk of looking utterly ridiculous in a few hours time I would say it’s a 99% chance of a No victory"

Here are the last YouGov figures:

www.reuters.com...


Scotland's verdict on the union should be clear around breakfast time on Friday, but a YouGov poll of 1,828 voters previously polled indicated 54 percent of Scots would back the union while 46 percent would seek independence.

"This YouGov poll indicates the union has prevailed," YouGov research manager Laurence Janta-Lipinski told Reuters of the survey carried out on Thursday which was not an exit poll. "It looks like the union will remain intact for the time being."

I was surprised to read this:

www.reuters.com...


Alex Salmond, the 59-year-old nationalist leader, told hundreds of supporters in Perth at a final rally: "This is our opportunity of a lifetime and we must seize it with both hands."

Salmond has said Queen Elizabeth should stay on as Queen of Scots. She has remained above the fray, in keeping with the constitution, but said on Sunday she hoped Scots would choose "carefully".


One of the BBC "No" spokesperson said that the "Yes" campaign had promised voters almost anything to get votes, because of the tactical importance of getting maximum support for one vote. Practical bridges could be crossed (or burned) later.

Of course the Queen is Queen of many countries of the former British colonies. I guess it just surprised me that the Nats leader could be a monarchist in that way. I'd have expected more of a republican mentality, as an outside observer.

Thanks for the correction. I did hear it explained on BBC that they were doing that now, dividing the votes into yes, no and to be ruled on by an official of some sort.

There are problems With the Count in Glasgow. So far at least ten People have been found to have voted two times.

That is from Sky News.

According to the YouGov spokesperson on the BBC, if the vote is tight or close in Glasgow, the No side will take the referendum.

He says that Yes must win comfortably in Glasgow to win the referendum. A close vote in Glasgow, mean Scotland goes "No".

They are saying that the closeness of the poll results may have had the effect of bringing out the No voters.

If a state decided to secede, it would have to pay its portion of the national debt back.

This ain't happening any time soon for anyone.
