Sounds like he's a bit salty that they've got more say in English politics than he does.

How big headed and presumptuous of them.


Yep. The self-proclaimed moral superiority of (hopefully) a minority of Yes voters has been pretty laughable. Nobody wants or supports poverty or inequality.

I was screaming at the radio he (Farage) came on this morning - him and his stupid opinions. I do not know why the BBC give him so much air time. I thought they were meant to be impartial.

I'm a little bit gutted for Scotland tbh :( hopefully they get given something. Although I would not put it past Cam the Man and his mates to ignore the whole thing. The strawberry floating snakes.

55% of Scotland might not have wanted to or meant to, but they just supported both.

Distasteful that the Highlands haven't even declared yet and now it's all "english votes for english laws". Give it an hour boys.

Just woke up and saw the results.



I voted no. Edinburgh voting No was predictable, as was Glasgow voting yes :lol:

28/32 districts is pretty unanimous. Glad to see theyve appointed Lord Smith of Kelvin to get devolution ball rolling.

Yeah but according to some reports people voted lots of times ;)

Interesting to see contrasting Yes supporters today across the interwebs

"Whatever happened, we can be proud. Change will come, we did that. Engagement in the political process shows the will of the people"
vs
"We're strawberry floated. Utterly strawberry floated. Cowardly "country men" screwed us. Nothing will change. We're slaves still. Embarassed to be Scottish. Game over man! Game over!"

(Paraphrasing, and only slightly exaggerating)

On a morning all about the Scottish I've seen Nigel Farage on three channels talking about the West Lothian question! He's certainly positioning himself up as the 'voice of the English people.'



As for Scotland in these times of global uncertainty i feel we, internationally speaking, are stronger together. Voter turnout was record breaking and new powers mean Salmond has still succeeded in bringing some new change and independence to Scotland.

Why do so many scots seem to think they are getting devo max now? The major parties signed a letter to say that they would devolve more powers that was all. Now everyone seems to be going on about devo max. I thinks it's important that people realise the difference otherwise we are suddenly going to have a lot of people claiming that they were lied to and tricked when in fact they've just misunderstood.
