Scotland, but Cameron is now telling them there is hardly any left, they'll soon run out of money and will crash.

Not really, all they need to do is reduce their corporate tax rates and the Banking Sector will up sticks to Edinburgh in a jiffy.

That being the case....I think Connacht should declare independence.

If it's a No from Scotland, it'll significantly significantly enhance our chances here of getting corporation tax devolved.  The decision has been delayed until after this referendum and appears to be entirely dependent on the result in Scotland.

Prince William has promised to call the baby Jock if the Scots vote no. Even if it's a girl.

This should work. High Ulster Protestant culture - burgers, vomit, cider, Lambeg drums - will surely swing it

http://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/ni-orangemen-to-march-in-edinburgh-ahead-of-referendum-1.1921768

Orange Order members from Northern Ireland are set to march in Scotland to demonstrate their support for a No vote in the upcoming independence referendum.

A Belfast-based spokesman for the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland confirmed that Irish Grand Master Edward Stevenson would travel to Edinburgh with other senior Orangemen.

I can't see Scotland voting Yes on the 18th. Only a 2% lead in the poll and mostly from swinging undecided voters. They'll swing back to No on the day. However, Salmond says it's actually a 5% lead and Mumsnet say it's 4%.
Turnout will be a massive factor if the gap is likely to be less than 5%.

What would it mean for NI? Would it have any direct implications IF the Scots vote yes. I can't see it happening myself, but just wondering would the Unionists shit themselves or put up more flegs?

It will be interesting to see how many people change their mind in the ballot box and take the safe option of voting No

The Québec example is often cited, where the "Yes" side was ahead of "No" by about 3%, but on the day the "No" side won by the narrowest of margins, as people chickened out in the polling station.
Or maybe it was just within the margin of error?

Electoral outcomes are driven by fundamentals, and the cold truth about the union is that the fundamentals binding it were weakening before Mr Alexander was born 46 years ago. The British empire, existential threats from the continent, Protestantism, the armed forces – the first two of these great adhesives have gone, the last two are not quite what they were. The substance of the union has been thinning out since 1945
The UK is not an immutable fact of nature; it is a human design that can be undesigned when the circumstances that gave rise to it no longer obtain. The break-up of the union would be sad and a practical ordeal that would suck up years of work in both Westminster and Holyrood. But it would not be an aberration. Historical forces make it explicable.


Nigel Dodds and Donaldson are 2 of the greatest lickarses in politics, professing their undying loyalty in every Westminster speech and a Yes vote would take the ground from under them.

Maybe they could bring over some of their old "Ulster says NO" banners
