I don't have knowledge of how everyone voted in the referendum. How could I?

I did however read the results of post-referendum research carried out by (I think) Lord Ashcroft.

"I don't fear democracy, MFC. You do" implies that you think I did and were denouncing the fact with your retort. If I read your post incorrectly then I apologise - but the rest of my post still stands.

Ironing is coming along well

Scotland must foot the entire bill
You need a positive result of 50% of registered electors +1
Non Scots resident in Scotland can't vote
Leader of SNP must resign from politics every time you lose
If you win, you leave the union that day.
So these are all laughable? Scotland paying for it? Oh yes, you expect those Baested Aenglish to pay for everything in your godforsaken country
A clear majority to win? Why not? Oh yes, because democracy terrifies you
Leave the same day? Why not? YOu are a standalone country with massive oil reserves...oh,wait, we don't discuss oil price do we? Well, you clearly don't...

Remind me, did 50% of registered voters + 1 vote in favour of Scotland not being an independent country in the last referendum?

I'd be prepared to accept that the leaders of the BT parties resign once the Yes vote has been declared.

Perthy, I have a tough shirt to iron, so lets give you time on this one...

Why don't you ever answer questions?

Lets make it multiple choice..

A. Too Scared
B Too Stupid
C. Can't get an answer quick enough from HQ
D. Voices in your head realise you are on a loser

Bluddy dress shirts, so fiddly to iron, need them for work though

Perthy, your wish for independence would create more respect south of the border if you chose to renounce the Barnett Formula hand outs, it appears rather strange to shriek for independence from the dreadful English and at the same time be happy to accept charity on such a colossal scale.
How about it? get Sturgeon to refuse the charity hand outs and state that Scotland is happy to stand on her own two feet without relying on fat subsidies from the UK, we're behind you all the way on that.


Meanwhile, despite your assertion that the Scots are stupid enough to support independence, it won't happen, not even if you had a referendum every fortnight.

Less than 38% of the electorate voted for the destruction of the UK.

That was the expressed "settled" will of the Scottish people.

To put that same irrevocable statistic another way: More than 62% of the Scottish people showed themselves to be Content with the Act(s) of Union.

The Contents have it, the Contents have it.

The Not Contents can now phuq off and crawl away under a stone for a generation or for a lifetime, please.

Even the unionist Hootsmon can't deny it:

New Scottish independence poll puts Yes at 52% - The Scotsman

Hmm, who else goes to work on a Saturday evening wearing a dress shirt? A gigolo? James Bond?

An excellent link Perthy, shall we join the readers to see the "man in the street" views of Sturgeons latest,


Why are we still talking about this nonsense. Must be a slow news day .there will not be another vote on Independence for at least 30 years . BTW if there was a vote next week Yes would lose by a bigger margin. More chance of Neil Lennon being the next Rangers manager than Yes getting enough brainwashed deluded fools to win a referendum.
Don't believe a word of it - nothing more than Tartan Moonie hype.
YeSSnp has peaked as people realise what a total calamity would have befallen the country had they won. Even their support may have noticed the price at the pumps.
Characteristically YeSSnp will obsessively claim high recruitment and try to shout down and denigrate all those who do not share their lunatic views.
That's strange.
I thought we had a referendum and we voted overwhelmingly against independence-or was it just a dream?
You have to laugh when the majority in this survey agree that the Smith Commission does not go far enough-I wonder how many of these respondents actually know what is in the report.
Or indeed how many of them can divide $65 per barrel by $115, and then work out how that would impact our NHS
The great white 'Scottish Prophet, leader of all things dubious (AS)' stated the other day that the 'YOU GOV poll showing a YES vote a week before the referendum 'cost the SNP dictatorship' the win that up until then was certain. Now the equally mistrusted YOU GOV poll for the SUN (God help us) newspaper states that 52% of Scots (the usual cabal of the unemployed, unemployable and other non contributors) would vote YES !!! Brent Crude $65.00 and falling (budget gap please), they must have been targeting the 'mental institutions of old Scotland' to get a result that tends to suggest to most educated people that certain Scots are mentally deficient !!!! The latest response to the oil price from the SNP is 'on the date of the final severance from the UK the price would/might be higher', that is the vanishing hope of a 'bunch of losers'.
No means no. Why is that so hard to grasp for so many.
Sort of looks like you are on your own here old chap, thanks for the chance to listen to the real Scots.

Didn't the polls say something very similar the last time and turned out to be completely wrong?

The thing is Perthsaint, no matter now loud you and your fellow Salmondistas (should it be Sturgeonistas now) squeal you lost pure and simple

Rob,

The democratic thing to do would be to put the polls to a test by holding a referendum.
