Can't argue with any of that.

I've woken up to an absolute madhouse on Facebook. I forgot it's already after 2pm in Scotland so a good proportion of people have already voted.

If they get independence I want independence :x

The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament.

He was his uncle! All those rumours were just gossip, Wilson and Mrs Pike were just very good friends.

Scotland keeps the nukes in exchange for a currency union.

My Dad's doing some work through a company with Lloyds TSB at the minute and apparently they've got all their staff on call this entire week as they believe that if a Yes vote wins that everyone is going to be rushing to their banks to get all their money out. He's not really at all pleased that he's now got to deal with this as he's contracting with a company who supplies software to them and not even with the bank, but he said this weekend should be rather interesting.

I have no idea.

I read not too long ago that support for an all Ireland reunification wasn't very strong in Ireland and had dropped off in Northern Ireland a bit due to the economic capers over the last few years.

If there was a vote on reunification tomorrow in the ROI it'd probably pass handily but the rise of Sinn Fein has dampened any appetite among the other political parties for reunification. Realistically there aren't many partnerships they could forge with NI parties so Sinn Fein could end up as the biggest party in an all-island Ireland.

You'd never see us plugging our own Twitter account like that. Utterly shameless.
