The Scottish Referendum

I think that living in the most Northerly city in England, the day before the Scottish Referendum, it would probably be remiss of me not to mention what's happening over the border.

I do admit that for the vast majority of the time leading up to the election, myself and I suspect other people in England haven't paid much attention to the whole situation, other than possibly feeling a little jealous that the Scots had this opportunity.  However, as the day finally arrives and the bluster from both sides increases exponentially, I've seen a lot of lies, half truths and false extrapolation from everyone.   I have no incredible insight on this topic, other than recalling the moves in New Zealand to join with Australia to increase their monetary clout and the poor performance of the Euro, I can't help in thinking this isn't the best time to make such a momentous decision and I do hope that everyone remembers it isn't a film called Braveheart... It's real life and it's forever.
