Part of the problem is that we have 2 really good MP's. Alex and Nicola.
I know of only a couple of folks who will vote 'yes' and they are religious about it - i.e. it's a matter of faith with them and has nothing to do with economics or reality for that matter.
If we as a nation overwhelmingly vote yes then it will have to happen but I am with Nessie on this one. I cannot see any need. I am British and Scottish and happily so, London just isn't so far away. If we get more than our fair share, or, pay more than our fair share then it should be rectified - possibly devo-max could be that way. There has to be some change in parliament so that Scottish MP's don't unduly influence English/Welsh matters and so, yes, there are some things that need to be worked out.
The thought of us started afresh - currency, defence, intelligence - domestic and foreign, embassies, sports teams, welfare, banking, NATO, Europe etc etc ..... shudder.
