My two pennies….knee jerk and mostly MSM driven and there is still no major poll showing a good majority , it will settle and as syd rightly noted a big pinch of salt is needed with polls, bigger still with the MSM and for my sins I work within the bowels of a reasonably big one.
It sounds like you are pro indy which is belter if that's your personal feeling. Personally I think Scotland is as divided as the rest of the UK. I'm no fan of the SNP, no majors in stating that, they've spread where labour have failed and imo are blinkered and destructive long term. I hope we stay united, the scots are amazing people and as far as I can tell it's fairly evenly mixed, perhaps like brexit slightly weighted when you get into the age demographics. In my experience most of them are not as anal that they can't have a grown up conversation without throwing their toys out the pram, mentioning no other area which is the opposite!. Post Brexit we'll see how it pans out, I reckon it'll be all ok and settle back to norm but if the wee little cranky thin lipped c**t gets her way then fair play.
I do disagree that Boris is out of touch, he's got the prize and is no certainly no thicko. He may well fuck up but I have a feeling he'll reach out with some clever populist policies and he'll be foolish to leave the Scots out of any benefits, he'll look to unite in his drive to divide. One thing is certain it will be a tad more entertaining.

His cabinet appointments suggest he’s not looking to unite anyone or build any bridges across the Tory party let alone the country. It’s a piss poor cabinet with no majority to speak of and no goodwill. I wish I shared your optimism about things being ok post Brexit. Even Boris concedes there’ll be damage done when he says we can “weather the storm” how bizarre to concede that your central policy will damage the country. Whatever happened to the post Brexit windfall? Now all the talk is of huge borrowing that’ll add billions to the national debt

The best thing to do is switch off twitter, stop reading the DM, Guardian, red tops (don't think there's many on here that do the latter anymore, they've mostly fucked off) because there's shit all any of us can do at this point in time. Log into Fuk every cpl of days, catch up with the weirdo in the waywt thread early doors and soldier on. Then switch on instagram where distraction is tailored fit.
