I read on one of these threads about a suppsoed exit poll from yougov.

I have checked and there is no Exit Poll.

The opportunity for fiddling is greatly increased therefore, since an odd result from an area can't be checked against an exit poll.

...think that is what the Guardian is suggesting also....

Just back from marking my X, and polling staff told us that Falkirk has closed early, as they've had a 100% turnout. Don't know if it bs or not....

"Despite some rumours on Twitter, Severin Carrell has confirmed with Falkirk council that it is “simply not true” polling stations closed early because 100% of their local voters turned up."

Wrong. Labour would have won the UK general elections in 1997, 2001 and 2005 without Scotland.

Wrong, if we got rid of the Jocks prior to 1997 then all political parties would have swayed to the right as theyd be rid of an entire nation who'd vote for Karl Marx is he was alive today. So god knows what would have happened.

Bliar was far more right wing than Major.

Look - have a heart for the Establishment. Exit polls make it so much more difficult to fiddle the count.

Like the totally fair Crimea result?

I wonder if Salmond could annex Doncaster in the same way?

WOT!!! I've got to stay up till 2am or later watching Dimbleby or whoever just to find out the result!!?? Outrageous!

You'll have to stay up longer than that, Glasgow and Edinburgh are not expected to return a result until 5am.

Get with it!

There were international observers in Crimea who declared the poll free and fair.

Tellingly, there are no international observers in Scotland.

I guess, perhaps, a faster (and reasonably accurate?) indication of which way the result is going to go will be shown up first via the financial markets (e.g FTSE futures)? I'm sure the big money institutions are the first to get wind and act accordingly? Then I can get to bed earlier!

Question is......which way would the markets go for a YES and which way for a NO ???? :blink:

Whatever way this goes I'm proud of my fellow scots for turning out in such huge numbers and for making politics relevant again. Hard to imagine but everyones been talking about this referendum. In streets, pubs, taxis, offices everywhere that people meet they have been discussing important issues.

makes the hairs on your neck stand up on end to see so many people heading to the polling stations today.

Lets get it counted and see where we stand in the morning.

Just had a quick look on the web......seems the pound/dollar rate is climbing (recovering losses of the last week or so?) and FTSE is up a fair bit. So I guess that means the Square Mile isn't panicking and it's a 'No' vote then?
