I thought I should mention two stories on the Scottish Independence referendum -
for the Bank of England's Scottish referendum's contingency plans. It's interesting that the Reserve Bank of the United Kingdom is called the Bank of England - why is it not called the Bank of the United Kingdom? One can see Scottish objections to the Bank of England's title and role...
which is about how the BBC will broadcast a debate on the issue across the United Kingdom. The first debate was only broadcast in Scotland.
My view? I suspect the Nationalists will not win this referendum. I note the first referendum on Scottish devolution - the return of a Scottish parliament - did not 'win' (it did win in that the majority of those who voted, voted for devolution but not enough people voted to match the criteria set by the Westminster Parliament in London) but devolution won the second referendum. I suspect a second referendum will quite quickly happen on Scottish independence and it will return a pro-independence majority.
