I'd love a yes vote! I see no reason why the two countries can't just coexist like they already did before the king from Braveheart ;) tried to take over Scotland several hundred years ago. And if it shakes up the markets and big-government then that's welcome too, if not an over-simplification.

The scaremongering by Westminster is the worst part about this debate - it's only scary because they're threatening to make it scary. I'm surprised that Westminster hasn't declared Black Friday yet as part of its scaremongering!!

I heard one bookie is already paying out for a no vote as it is so confident of a no vote. I think no is pretty likely, but I am prepared to be surprised.

looks to be another underhand thought control trick. more a sign of desperation from the no's than anything else. the scary thing is the british government are blatantly trying to control a free vote. this is election rigging by the backdoor !!!

i see trouble ahead

btw///i called black friday this morning....tmt chickened out but i can see it coming

Can't believe nobody has started a 'Black Friday' thread yet.

I think the markets will go into a panic if there is a YES vote so just putting it out there to see if one of these predictions will will turn out to be correct for once. :)

..what about a 'no' vote and all those undemocratic promises from idiots...get rid of lefty Scots MPs from Westminster ...I'm Scottish.... :rolleyes:

Yes, there does seem to be some anger that too much has been promised to Scotland. We could see some fallout over the next few week on matter what the result is.

I too would love a yes. Just to upset shiney Dave, Gormless Ed, Hopeless Liar Nicky, and that Fuctard the half blind and mad Scottish git, but unfortunately the Scots are not going to.

....obviously you are a bit of a loser in life..of course they will vote yes ...and get rid of the Scots Lefty MPs in Westminster ....who as a loser would you vote for ....we need to to see some conviction ...not loser negatives.... :rolleyes:

I think people are underestimating the significanced of Betfair paying out on a No vote.

They are ignoring the avarice of the bookies and also the past record of the bookies in predictive accuracy.

I'm thinking No also for a different reason. Despite how rotten the system is there's too many people with their skin in the game and they will support the status quo. Politicians might think short term but so do most people. The wildcard is really the young and first timers - they might be a bit braver and show some courage.

It looks like it was Betfair Sportsbook, a smaller business of Betfair and it was a publicity stunt according to the Independent. They probably only paid out £50.

I'm predicting a very green Friday after a narrow no vote and the markets rebounding as if Carney just opened the QE punch bowl again and put Agadoo on the stereo. If it's a yes vote, I expect a black Friday followed by a very green Monday as Carney actually does open the QE punchbowl again and puts Agadoo on the stereo.

Rebound ?

They've not dropped.
