Re the Euro - no party in Scotland is currently trying to sell that idea. Anyway, it's not clear when an independent Scotland would even gain accession to the EU. Salmond's current plan - sterlingisation - would mean we wouldn't even be eligible for EU membership (the nationalists are denying this, but it's in the EU rules in black and white).
And I suspect the impact on 70% of Scottish trade would be just a wee bit more important than folk saving a few percent on their holiday cash.
Just remember that if Yes wins and they have those street parties, the other half of the population of Scotland will be in meltdown. This would be an utter disaster of historic proportions for a huge percentage of the population.
All police leave has been cancelled and police are being drafted in from around the UK. Think about that.
Predictably ,emotions appear to be running high even here.This is a historic event for the UK and Scotland. The dream of many Scots seems so close but will it come good? It is often said that there is more excitement and fun in traveling than on arriving! If the Yes side wins we can see loads street parties in loads of Scotland's Cities towns and villages. Not sure how many street parties there will be in England but there will be some.For the market it is a testing time.A No vote will help calm the market but will it happen? It is only fair that our Board comes out with some statement this week, it is all part of risk management I believe. GLA
One poll out of dozens has shown a narrow Yes lead. The same evening, a PanelBase poll said No still have a 4 point lead. And the data underlying the YouGov poll which showed Yes in the lead actually had 475 voting Yes and 538 voting No, before they weighted it.
What has never failed to amaze me throughout this campaign is Salmond and Co’s frightening lack of self-awareness.
He/they accuse the Better Together Campaign of negative campaigning, yet even The Morning Star has been running stories about the utter tosh the Yes side have been peddling regarding NHS privataisation.
When Cameron gave an emotional speech at the Olympic Park velodrome back in February he was ridiculed. Sturgeon went so far as to say it was “a tawdry bid” to use the Olympic Games “as a political tool”. Does anyone need reminding of Salmond’s cringe-inducing dislapy with the Saltire at Wimbledon last year?
Salmond et al are forever accusing Cameron of “running scared” of a head-to-head debate, yet the FM has turned down repeated interview requests from the likes of Andrew Neil and fails to give straight answers to the simplest of questions.
