What's the electricity generating capacity of Scotland? Would they be okay if the rest of the UK decided not to sell them power after they leave?

Seems like a pretty snobby move to allow a country to claim independence and then immediately vilify them for doing so. Why would the UK stop selling power to them?

Because the Scottish don't want to depend on anyone else for anything, that's why they want to be independent.

It's looking like a no, anyway. I'm kind of upset, since I like the idea of Ireland not being alone with the U.K. on the British and Irish Isles but we'll survive.
Based on another poll?
I wonder how tired they are of taking polls on the subject.

The odds on a Yes have gone out to 4:1 from 2:1 earlier in the week. I think the Scots are going to vote for subjugation.

THORK, you really are as stupid as you look. [...] God, you ARE a fucktard.

Yaakov, please keep the personal insults out of your posts. You're welcome to think that Thork/Saddam/everyone is a terrible sub-human, and you're welcome to express these views in Angry Ranting and Complete Nonsense, but this is not something that will be allowed in the upper fora. You've been warned about this before by Junker and you've clearly ignored it, so next time we're gonna have to start handing out short bans.

This is what I am reading: http://www.rte.ie/news/2014/0917/644289-scotland-referendum/ Probably pretty tired. It's the real deal now, though.

Yeah, that's the one I saw as well.

We'll see how it goes. The Yes campaign seems pretty loud but minorities often do.

The FTSE has been trending upwards, so the market doesn't seem worried about this vote.

Less than an hour's worth of voting to go before this interminable waste of airtime will be over.

Oh wait, if they vote no then we'll be subjected to hours of negotiations for more powers.

If they vote yes we'll be subjected to hours of negotiations about what iScotland will look like.

Still, there's a rumour that Shetland and Orkney might vote to split from iScotland, that'll be fun.

If Scotland leave, I'm guessing we change the union jack to remove the blue. So does that mean Australia, New Zealand, Fuji etc will all get new flags too, being as ours is stamped onto theirs?

I'm actually not really pushed for either side but as an Irishman I can only bring myself to bear the Scottish flag on my avatar, never the Union Jack. So here we are.

What? They're paying for the power. That isn't dependence, it's trade. If that's your idea of an independent country, then no country in the world fits your definition.

Looking like a pretty solid "no" for Scotland. 46% Yes, 54% No.
