Plus, you gotta admire how skilfully he outmanoeuvred the other main parties, exposing their disdain for Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Yeah, he might be a twat, but Cameron's smug gang career politician chums are some next level twats.

I do like his policies and what he's done. Just don't like him as a person

But young team were born in an age of devolution, with its free scripts and university. They see the union's welfare state falling apart, with state assets being sold to anyone who'll buy them. Scotland doing its own thing looks much better to them. Maybe it might inspire young people in England, too - who have no political choice anymore: just rich establishment cunts, racist establishment cunts (UKIP), and racist poor cunts (BNP, NF). I think a more radical but modern party down here would shake things up. They need to be shaken up.
I thought the same thing but looking at polls strangely the 16-24 age bracket is the 2nd biggest percentage in favour of no (after 65+), too young to remember Braveheart? Oops Annoyingly I can't remember where I read this as almost everything I've read recently is linked from facebook. I do agree with you completely though as that's certainly how my mates feel (20s/30s) and my mum is exactly as you've said about the older generation.

I hoped that too Roll Eyes

did you not purchase Wet Wet Wet's seminal 2nd album "Holding Back the River"? Archie Gemill's goal in 1978? The life and career of Jeanette Krankie? Come on man, come on.

I am still undecided, i was swaying towards no, but i couldn't give a strong enough reason for doing so. Need to go do some research. As you said Lee, banners and flags everywhere up here.

That's because they're more vocal/have to shout louder - lack of answers on key questions will be the Yes sides undoing.
