This train of thought, sounds like the Flying Scotsman.



Love it.

Riding on the Gotterdammerung. Down and down she goes. Where she stops no one knows.

On the basis of being ignored by Westminster, the Somerset Levels currently have a stronger reason for independence.

It's about self determination, no-one but the people of Scotland should be able to decide on Scotland's future.



So I, and 700,000 other Scots in England who weren't at a Scottish address last year, don't have the vote (I live in Glasgow now), plus many other tens of thousands out of the UK last year, whereas 300,000 English people and many tens of thousands of Americans, Poles, French, Portuguese, Australians, Kiwis, Germans, South Africans etc., who were, (I know of one or several of each right here in Glasgow) do get the vote.

There may be legal action about this. Students, workers, retired people all disenfranchised - so how does this poll enfranchise me, my brother (working in Languedoc), my daughter (school in the Cotswolds)? All Scottish, we would get the passport. What is "the people of Scotland"?

If you live in Scotland now you will be eligible to vote in the referendum.  The eligibility rules are more or less the same as any election in Scotland.

Yes thank you click-gotcha I researched and you're quite right it seems. I was being fed porkies by an SNP friend! ( innocently I think)

Latest polls show a 5.5% swing to Yes since Osborne's "Sermon on the pound". Now, if only David Cameron would accept Alex Salmond's challenge to a TV debate.
