Rebound ?

They've not dropped.

It's funny, having not paid any real attention recently, I had it in my head that the past 10 days had seen the markets close red consistently and drop a few hundred points. Turns out it's only about 75. So I guess I've been conditioned by all the media shite that I've been subjected to and have assumed the world is coming to an end if Scotland leave.

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.

Betfair sportsbook are a joke, take any kind of value and your get kicked.

Odds are mostly way better at the exchange, if you do happen accross odds higher at the sportsbook than the exchange and take those odds you will get limited to peanuts and bonus banned from free bets and best odds guaranteed.

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.

The fear factor is a major element, and you can see why the NO campaign has focussed on this (although they have gone too far in this, imho).

What should be said (but I'm happy as I support the union that it is not) is that there is risk in staying with the status quo. How can continuing with the ponzi house bubble and multi billion pound deficit, not be totally risky, considering bubbles always burst?

Yes, this is exactly my view.

The flip side of that is that there's an inbuilt desire for change amongst all people and age groups. The Yes campaign has rightly focused on this and have run a much slicker operation. On Twitter the Yes campaign have 90000+ followers and BetterTogether have less than half that around 40000. Colossal fail in the cliched age of social media. The Yes campaigners are also a much more dynamic and electic bunch. Even if it's a No this time the demographics are on their side. Another proposed referendum in 18 years with lots of broken promises, a catastrophic crash plus no boomer votes and it most likely won't even be a close call. Could be 70-80% Yes.

So a yes vote will demolish house prices north of the border.

If only the place wasn't either as grim as a coal hole or infested with mozzies as big as hummingbirds, and filled with the worst sort of racists I've come across in 30 years of travelling the globe. I'd be up there shopping for bargains first thing on Friday morning.

I too wish for a yes vote. You see, everything that is, was, or ever will be wrong with Scotland seems to be my fault, or my Dad's, or my distant forebears. This time, it will be all of their own making and I can't wait for the fall out. Be careful what you wish for.

Ill give you the mozzies but the racist part is utter nonsense. If you think Scotland is the most racist country in the world then you are an idiot.

UM I have been on the receiving end of some appalling racism in England, many times threatened with physical violence.That said when I have been on the receiving end English friends have stepped in to defend me. There are dicks in every country, you cannot say the shaven headed no neck england shirt wearing moron is better or worse than the foul mouthed scottish anti english moron. Luckily the number of "good" people who stand up to such things is the majority in both countries.

  • Jordan and India named the world's least tolerant countries
  • U.S., Britain, Canada and South America are among the least racist

I've spent quite a bit of time travelling in East Asia and the report is about correct. In the UK it is mostly empty threats thankfully, whereas there are places where you have to be able to either run or fight.

What's the significance of the projected 20% postal vote?. The highest percentage of the projected total vote ever, in any election?

The projected total postal vote is that 85% of them will have voted - and if only 20% are voting by post, that is not high. In the May elections not far off 40% of votes were by post.
