Scotland independence

Recommended Posts

....there was no fire

:bad: Obviously (just a few missing ballot papers!)

They are saying that Glasgow has the lowest turnout of voters and that surprised them.

A semi-disappointing 75% The big cities definitely having worse turnouts than other areas.

Orkney (as expected) -

NO - 58%

YES - 42%

I wouldn't call it so soon! I feel a shocker coming on.

I still think a narrow NO win!

Kim, that no guy from Orkney did not even crack a smile, despite the results going his way. Strange reaction.

Next is Dundee apparently. Also, where are all the Scottish reporters ? I want to hear the accents :rant:

That dumb bitch from the first declaration didn't even switch off her mobile first, it rang all the way through.

I think you're getting the Sky News feed (the lousiest of them all)

I'm on the edge of my seat with this. Staying in close contact with my Scottish friends through Facebook. Two are 'yes' voters and a two are 'no'. It's nail biting.

Alex Salmond cancels his appearance at the Aberdeenshire count which indicates a "no" from them.

I'm going to bed if the result doesn't start getting closer. Boring.

Pity. BBC and ITV is from Glasgow and Edinburgh. Very grass-roots as it should be.

I am a peaceful, nature loving, puppy stroking person.

However, for the last week, all I've wanted to do is smack that smug face of Alex Salmond's square off his face and then celebrate with a lovely plate of black pudding.

Shetland goes NO.

3 very small seats so far though.

Ditto - to Cameron's red sweaty moon face. Salmond is a very skilled and charismatic politician in fact, hence why this day is even here in the first place.

Exactly. These no areas are all tiny seats. Small places. Where's the big boys?

The game isn't won yet.

From years back - actually English convicts and also an English Lord ! You can see how far back though. My father lived in London for a few years when he was young and loved it. He had a lot of friends from England that we all become close to. We also have Scottish and French ancestors from way back so a mixed lot. Australians are all mixtures really as such a new country. Well apart from the Aboriginals who have been here for 40 thousand years.

Yes, he is talking now with a panel of 4 people around a table.

Inverclyde - NO by less than a hundred votes :shock:

On his way to Edinburgh I think (that, or fleeing the country!)

That was so close - only 86 votes in it. This is starting to get really interesting now with that being so close.
