First win for YES in inverclyde with 50.1% of votes.

Doesn't do much to the overall vote, but every little helps.


Edit : Oops I mean NO win. I'm getting tired lol.

I know what the hells taking so long?

The Aberdonians have ran out of toes to count, once they got past 7 on each foot they got confused and had to start again.

I am so pissed off about the no abroad vote. I'm sure someone else mentioned this but it bears repeating, Not fair. Not fair.

Overall vote so far.

YES at 45%
NO at 55%

The gap has closed, Glasgow needs a big YES turnout, to swing this round. It's not impossible, even though media are already convinced of an overall NO win.

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


Well of course. Anyone who is employed and living in Scotland is benefiting from the union and open borders. Hundreds of thousands of East Europeans are coming into Scotland to work. Anyone Scottish who has had to emigrate to find work isn't benefiting. Hundreds of thousands of Scots work abroad.

All part of the great plan.

Funny thing was that Alex Salmond was wanting all those Scots to return home to Scotland.

I don't understand this no vote. Scotland is stronger alone. Why attach to a sinking ship"?

I'm pretty pissed too.

Everyone is so damned fearful of severing the umbilical cord to their English masters, it's a sad state of affairs indeed.

My family immigrated here from Scotland and Ireland with my great grandparents, but I still have family living in both countries....

I imagine they must be screaming at the tv right now, and my aunty tossing her cast iron frying pan out the front door in a fit of anger.

No offense to the English, but dammit... Scotland needs to be its own country once and for all.

Yep Dundee results pushed it that close...

The bigger cities and counties can create huge swings, Glasgow will have an even bigger Yes vote, yet.
