Scottish nationalist: It’s now or never

Scotland’s landmark independence referendum, due to open for voting in just hours, is a “one-off opportunity,” Scottish Member of Parliament Marco Biagi told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in Edinburgh.

“This isn’t the kind of choice that we get very often. This isn’t like an election.”

“This is a one-off chance to really do things differently in Scotland, and to fundamentally change the kind of society we are living in – to get the governments we vote for, to protect our public services, and to have governments that pay attention to Scotland not just once every three hundred years when an opinion poll suggests we might vote for independence, but every day.”

    This absurd list of David Cameron's crazy last-ditch promises to Scottish voters fits right in with all the nutty statements on both sides http://dandygoat.com/what-are-david-camerons-last-minute-promises-for-scotland-to-vote-no

    All these big shots weighing in on the no side would make me vote yes.

    Living in Scotland, and being a YES voter, I would like to thank Obama for the votes his big mouth sent to the YES campaign.

    @Chris Herz: I think all the scare stories and media bias, even from the BBC, we have been subjected to have sent more voters to YES than the big shots. After all, Scotland voting for emancipation, ok perhaps that was too strong, voting for independence will not cause:

    a) The failure of the West
    b) The next Great Depression
    c) Terrorists to win

    ...sadly, these are real points in real stories published in real British print media.
