    You didn't at Holyrood.

    If we're independent, the voting system covering the house will be regional PR broadly as it is now.

    If you and another fifth of the Scottish population vote Tory, the Tories get 20% representation.

    I voted Green, got the list member elected I wanted and he's made a massive difference to Scottish government policy.

    We are free FFS.

    This rhetoric line that we're not free is just bollocks. We've been part of one of the worlds greatest nations for 300 years. Voting SNP will not change a ****ing thing, other than we'll be going headlong into a hugely expensive divorce. We'll still be ruled by self-serving governments, we'll still be forced to abide by ****ty laws, we'll still be paying jakeys to reproduce and clever jocks will still be heading down to London.

    The whole thing is fuelled by xenophobia, and the final push over the line will be from people who have never voted but have been told that they'll be better off for doing **** all.

    It's a no from this bead rattling ****.

    This will be the same Jocks who voted AGAINST Proportional Representation at the Houses of Parliament?

    If evidence was ever required, the Scottish electorate is thick as ****. Labour presided over the greatest financial **** up in 200 years and still 40% of the Jocks voted them in.

    Best thing to happen would be infect half the population with anal ebola.

    Nope. The point is that people are being seduced with this utopian vision.

    Politicians are ****s and will remain ****s whether they are Jocks, Nige, Taff or Kraut.

    Scotland seceding from the UK will devastate Scotland and the UK in the short-medium term.

    People are not voting for SNP, which is what you said. I've never voted SNP in my life and maybe I never will.

    Would you not agree, Paul? This nation invented and exported the modern world. For a European nation, we've not had war on our doorstep for 500 years whereas every nation in Europe has been invaded and had trench warfare etc all within the last 100 years.

    It's a huge gamble, ****ing massive! There's literally millions of ****s from all over the world trying to get to the UK, but Salmond and the porrige wogs are telling us that life is ****?

    Trying to get to Britain to escape civil war in Africa is hardly a ringing endorsement of Britain's greatness. Anyway, most of the poor c**ts end up in the slums of London or Glasgow dreaming about their mud huts and land mines.

    Depends on how you qualify "great". We're talking about a Union which was so arrogant it put the word in its name. The nation equivalent of the guy wearing sunglasses in a nightclub.

    Salmond will be lucky to last the year, he's a heart attack on legs.

    What's with the religous/football related insults?

    The UK is still one of the greatest nations on Earth whether you like it or not. We're not what we were but Europe's not what it was.

    My political views have absolutely nothing to do with my football team, any one who mixes football and politics should lost their vote.
