Goodbye Bonnie Scotland?

Sitting here tonight watching the BBC’s coverage of the yes/no referendum and one thing has become apparent and that is no matter what the vote is in Scotland the UK will never be the same.

The general feeling is that the no vote will win but that won’t stop the break up of the UK into a federal type country. Good news I feel, the city near where I live is the biggest council in Europe and yet is hamstrung by a centralised Westminster government that can see no further than the South East.

An interesting point is that it looks like it could be a 90% turnout which is amazing and just goes to show people are interested in politics as long as they are engaged. Now it’s down to the political parties to pick up the gauntlet and to get people voting!
