    Absolutely enthralling. We owe it to ourselves and to our sense of sharedness and compassion to vote YES to independence. Indeed, how could we not after reading this address. An address that gives us reason with passion.

      Well Jeffery hopefully most Scots will vote for independance and take the chance to stand on our own two feet, i’ll be voting yes, not because i have a problem with the UK or the rest of the Union but because it may be our only chance to free ourselves from this evil Tory led Westminster coalition government and any future Tory governments.

      If Scotland gets independance, i can’t see there being a Conservative government here for a long time, they’d have a lot of work to do before the Scots would ever believe another word that comes out their lying mouths!

      Chief Treasury Secretary Danny Alexander said each individual would be worse off by £1 per year in an independent Scotland, i’m sure, Jeffery, you’d be willing to pay a pound if it meant you no longer had to dance to Ian Duncan Smiths tune.

      Jeffrey, i’m glad that you like the Scots as i for one have no problem with England or the English people and i am sure that goes for the majority of Scots as well.

      I have noticed a rise in anti Scottish sentiment on a lot of political programmes lately and i have just wondered why, because we dared to ask for a referendum on independence!

      You i’m sure are well aware of the misery being inflicted on people by this Tory led coalition and how Ian Duncan Smith will not rest until he has personally left the imprint of his jack boots on the face of every disabled, poor & unemployed person in this country.

      I read my blacktriangle emails each day to see what new horrors this government have dreamt up for it’s people, the Bedroom Tax being the next nail in the coffin.

      Maybe the Scots are just thinking, “a yes vote could save us from this Draconian government”, who ever thought there would be a government worse than Thatcher’s!
