Scottish independance in two days what do you think?

    Now Scotland are demanding more. Get real.

    Scotland never "demanded" more. They were promised more powers by both Brown and the trio of Cameron, Milliband and Clegg in the lead up to the 18th.

    Now there's disagreements between the parties because they realise giving more powers will anger the English population. Milliband has to choose between keeping his promises to Scotland or losing English support for Labour which of course will ruin next year's election campaign. The leaders are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Making that vow was a massive mistake - they have got themselves stuck in a corner.

    Hi cofty ;...Is it not the case that Scotland was offerd a referendum after a mandate by democratic vote for self governance through independance?.

    Was it not westminster who offered more and are now in a fankle about it?.

    We shall see how it plays out.

    Best wishes.

    I've been accused of many things on this forum but never that...
