But you are talking about the average person in the street who watches Big Brother, thinks Winston Churchill is a dog and Ken Barlow is a real person. :lol:

You mean watches River City, thinks Bonnie Prince Charlie is a dog and Begbie is a real person.

I'm quite surprised neither party have went up to Dundee and promised more affordable street prices for drugs. It would be a quick way to bag a guaranteed 100k+ votes.

Alex salmon's has regularly disregarded claims from countless people with no actual reasoning other than just insisting that they're wrong. Both sides are as bad as each other in this,you could easily make one of those for the yes campaign as well :lol:

I, for one, will miss the daily contrast between morning and evening news on my way to and from work.

Mornings: "another big company has said that scottish independence would be bad for business and may cause job losses north of the border"

Evenings: "Alec Salmond has claimed this morning's report on potential job losses post-independence is evil, mean horrid bullying from the No campaign and he's going to tell his mummy on them"

Seriously, if he gets any more emo he'll be kevin keegan.

Only just got right to doing the poll in this thread. Chose the top option because free Doom Metal is a dealbreaker. If someone gave me a stack of Candles vinyl I'd vote whatever way they tell me.

I hope the Scots realise that if the Yes vote wins then they'll have to put up with more of Salmond and Sturgeon.

It'll actually make their first general election really interesting.

Well if they get independence then they will be a shoo in for Prime Minister/Deputy PM. They will then get even more media exposure. Five minutes of that whinging windbag and Wee Jimmy Krankie is enough for me. :ugh:
