Nah, Falklands already had their say. But yes places like Catalonia in Spain are keeping a close eye on this.

There's happiness in slavery as the song goes... and it looks like the Royals get to keep their Balmoral estate.

Closer but no cigar. Yet overall YES now on 42% , NO on 58% so there's a 1% swing in the right direction.

They would have kept it anyway, it has already been said in the event of a yes victory, the Queen will stay on as head of state to Scotland.

Not to be too conspiratorial or jinxy, because it's pretty damn historical and exciting ...but, if it passes, I wonder what the world-wide implications will be. Will other places say "screw this "? For instance, Texas, LoL? Or, more seriously, places that have historically bucked the Crown or disputed territories like the Falklands?


With as many advancement in weaponry, and in fact much more
than in communications-- I don't think the lady on the Stone of
Scone will have to flip out into a Longshanks moment.
Just the same I watched her whip off a healthy burst of full auto;
and would rather be in another province... a whole pond even better.

For Texas, I think the last time a secession was aired out they
backed down from having a no-fly zone threatened to be
enforced on them. Harumph. I'd be more concerned with NoCal
and south Oregon backing out and getting Jefferson going...

I read somewhere they altered the rules on voting to block Scots living abroad and expats from voting? That's a bit hinky.

Yes any Scot living abroad or even in England wasn't allowed to vote.

Looks like it's swinging towards the "no" vote...

But it's not over until the fat lady sings, I guess.

It's all over the news:

Scottish expats excluded from vote on independence
Scottish expats excluded from independence vote

And yet, the English who are living in Scotland DO get to vote. So a Scot living in England is blocked from voting, yet an Englishman living in Scotland can vote on the referendum. Like I said... hinky.

Revealed: The 500,000 English living in Scotland who are set to BLOCK independence (which makes up for all the expat Scots who don't have a vote)

Until now only 85 596 votes have been announced.

There is about 4 million + votes left

I know what the hells taking so long? Might have a nap at this rate and see if anything's happened in a hour or so.

I want independence so bad I can taste it. For my Gramp and Gran. But the people who love Scotland are not the people voting for it. Which is unfortunate. And sad.

Only 2,3% votes are declared in.

Yes would need just 50.2% of the remaining votes to turn it around.

It is not over by far.
