I'm a lifelong Labour voter, but, having heard the crap coming out of the Tories this week, I am seriously considering voting 'Yes' in the referendum if that is going to be the future.
I'd be interested to hear other's thoughts.
Short notice, I know, but any chance of some pithy bullet points on the undisputed pros and cons of Yes/No?
Best presentation gets my vote. Thank you.
I am a big yes voter and i hope with all my heart that Scotland gets independance tomorrow. However could someone out there with a better knoledge of politics please give me a pick me up?

I voted Yes, but after seeing this video, I'm not sure I did the right thing.
I'd hate for this poor chap to leave and go to Wales.
Between 7.00 am and 10.00 pm on 18 September, a unique situation will develop.
We, the people of Scotland, are totally sovereign, with sovereign power over what happens to our country.
At one minute past 10.00, if we vote no, we will have thrown that power away.
If, however, we vote YES,...
As it says on the tin. We've had threads on how each individual is going to vote on here and the result is a quite overwhelming Yes. This pretty much reflects what I'm reading elsewhere on other forums I'm involved in and my Facebook feed as well. However the opinion polls all seem to show a...

Absolutely deplorable act of barbarism.This organization needs to be wiped off the face of the earth now.

Fascinating to see the way the prosecutor is taking Oscar to bits. His tears at the start of the week just sound like self pity now, and he seems to refuse to accept responsibility for anything.
Hi I'm no economist but as we have heard we probably would start of with a 6billion deficit depending on who you believe, but as we are just now are we not 1.3 trillion in debt anyway! Now what I want to know is if we go what is the ramifications for the rest of the UK? Will it be worse for them...

The whole situation going on in Ukraine makes me very nervous. And with all the back and forth rhetoric between Russia and the west it's like The cold war all over again.
I've not decided where i stand on Ukraine and Putin because i've not really looked in to it enough, but it's getting...
I'm wondering what people think will happen in the Clacton byelection triggered by Douglas Carswell's switch to UKIP from the Conservatives?

I have been asked to sort out Invitations for my Grandads 75th birthday party - all I have been told is to make them Hibs related. My problem is I am not a Hibs fan so dont have any idea of...
In general, I find most of the wacky types who sit in basements and claim that 9/11 was all a Bush masterplan to invade Afghanistan/Iraq (or whatever other spurious claims they make) to be risible as for - from what I've seen and heard - all the evidence for the 2 main towers points to it being...

Anyone else have these problems? My old man is from the old brigade who thinks pull yourself together is the answer. Never used to be like this and time in the army hasn't helped. However, I'm not afraid to admit things and feel no stigma in being affected by this.
Just wondering if other...
