I liked the new style flag with the black and yellow of St David.
Personally I couldn't see how it was fascist.
Bos - "Those decisions which helped kill manufacturing, and laid the ground for the primacy of a finance industry, might not having been in Scotland's best interest."
Possibly not, but outside of London and the South East, Scotland has been the most prosperous region of the UK since the start of the last recession. This isn't uniquely down to finance: chemicals and science now flourish in Scotland.
Areas of the NE and NW of England have struggled far more than Scotland.
The offset is that Scotland has had a larger budget deficit (per capita) than the rest of the UK, which I understand would fall outside EU guidelines if they wish to adopt the euro.
Few more observations
Whether yes or no, a sizeable proportion of Scots have shown themselves to be venomously anti-english, which I find a little bit disturbing.
No party that I could vote for in the last election had granting Scotland more autonomy in their manifesto. So in the event of a 'no' vote, why should the coalition grant Scotland more spending powers without the same applied to England, Wales and NI.
The SNP/yes lobby are to campaign at polling stations on voting day. That smacks to me of intimidation, not democracy.
