Scotland, will they stay or will they go?

Today is the day we've all been hearing so much about, and in 24 hours we will know if they are staying or going.

I've quite immersed myself in the Yes and No debates, it's not that I'm a particularly political animal, far from it, creativity is what makes me tick. My interest comes as hopefully a future resident of Scotland, one day in the not too distant future when I can turn the lifelong dream of moving over the border into reality. 

I have spent a bit of time in Scotland the last couple of weeks and the atmosphere was quite intense, the referendum being the subject on most people's lips. I have to say that I can see good and bad on both sides and so it is probably as well I'm not there yet to vote as I feel quite undecided and sat on the fence.

I have friends up there on both sides who will be making well thought out choices today so along with them I will be waiting with baited breath to see what tomorrow's result holds.
Lets just hope positivity wins through and this hasn't turned Scot against Scot.

I agree Sally I hope it doesn't leave a divided nation.

well, decision made and very close (though not quite as close as anticipated). Like yourself I hope the Scots can now embrace their decision and move on.

Well it is done Sally and the choice has been made. Not being a Scot or living in Scotland it is not for me to know which is best although I have my opinion. I just wish them the very best and hope the future continues to be bright for them. In this neck of the woods some such as the catalonias have been waiting with bated breath for the results as independence has long been mentioned and discussed.
keep well

So Scotland are staying and I guess interesting times ahead so I hope it all turns out for the better. Interesting what Amanda has mentioned about Catalonia, someone told me that was going on at a similar time to Scotland but it didn't make the news on the channels here.
