Big "No" win in East Renfrewshire apparently....

This is doing wonders for my Scottish geography.

Does seem odd that the polls were saying this would be close but in practice it's looking like a rout

Has any of them came in Yes?

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.

It will go down to the wire.

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, that's where it gets decided.

Heard it here first.

No in Eilean, too. I fear the Yes campaign would have expected better.

A narrow win for "No" there then, I suppose it's significant as they don't seem to speak English.

A German and an Englishman keeping the Scottish Independence campaign alive on GRcade at the moment, it seems. William Wallace is rotating in his tomb.

I'm not German! I just lived there for ages. I moved back to Lancashire last year.

Another no for the Western Isles

If this does turn out to be a bit one sided, I hope that's not used an excuse for Westminster to walk away from devo max.

You can bet your life they'll do their best to wriggle out of it. Sadly, I expect provincial England will get shafted. We'll moan about it, but little else.

Hopefully even in a result of a No campaign, people will wake up to the feelings of people that aren't based in south-east England, and realised that having all the capital and resources located there is stupid and old-fashioned.

London is simply too large, too rich and too powerful, and this leads to feelings of resentment not only in Scotland, but in places like the North of England.

I mean, I love London - it is probably my favourite city in the world. But the pull it has on UK politics is ridiculous, even if it does have 8 million people there.
