I don't think anyone will benefit financially from a yes vote - any "savings" to either part of the dissolved union will be more that eaten up by the cost of the dissolution (I think the civil service have their own lawyers, but it'll still be expensive).
As Gymaddict says, there are other ways to address any imbalance in "fairness" without throwing toys out of prams.
Loved this week's show - so much better than last week! (No, I'm not turning into Brucie).
Yes, it was defintely Mark's time to go, but I was so pleased that he went out on a high. Ok, there was little bounce (but more so in the dance off) but definitely his best dance, and a lot better than other, better dancers have done in the Samba.
Top 6 left in, and for me it's 3/3. I think Susanna and Ashley's work committments are beginning to show, and they may start to struggle now that there are additional dances to learn. Sophie may improve now that she is getting more confident, but it could go either way. The other 3 are now pulling away a bit technically, but there's not a huge gap. Bad coreography or a mistake would be all that it would take.
I'm putting my £1.27* on Patrick.

So, even as a proud Scot, I won't be voting for independence.
Well let's be honest with the English picking up the bill for free prescriptions etc unless you're a racist England hater you wouldn't would you?
I can't remember the last time I was at the doctor, so not a big thing. And, as I said, a couple of hundred quid either way isn't what it should be about.
I think you're spot on, BB - the Nationalist camp just want independence at all costs and are trying to justify it by "proving" that it will all be rosy. On the flipside, the Better Togetherers are all doom and gloom and are making out there would be no benefit at all. But that's politics for ya.
