    Come the date, will we be unfazed or pissing ourselves as ST goes into meltdown?

    225 days to go

    Holding the election the day after the All Ireland Hurling final is a big mistake.

    Nah..... I'll be honest, i haven't thought the reasoning through, but that won't be it.

    The Irish in Scotland traditionally come from the northern counties where hurling ain't so strong. So there are only Gaelic Football clubs in Scotland as far as i know.

    I guess i was thinking that hopefully i'd be at it, have the next day off work and get to watch the telly where hideous unintelligible oafs go to the polls to decide whether they want dominion status or not.

    Great telly.

    It's going to be a great day when that vote is held, will stock up on the wine and fine English ales and watch the result come in. TV gold I'm sure.

    I can't wait for it to be over to be honest. I wonder if we'll get a referendum on whether we should vote in favour of Scottish accession to the EU? That could be a giggle

    Mick should run a book on what excuses will be made by our resident "yes" camp if the result is "no".

    you can certainly tell us to **** off with keeping sterling.

    the arrogance and presumptiouness of fatso salmond and co is hilarious.

    we will remain a member state of Europe. is that right fatty?

    we will get rid of nuclear weapons but still be hypocritical enough to come under NATO protection. is that so mr blobby?

    No need - the misguided will just say good riddance and the more level headed will hope that the Government (rather forlornly i fear) has a decent contingency plan in place as it is clearly expecting a no vote.
