On the Scots' referendum I believe it should only be down to the Scot's to vote. I would ask if UKIP was in the same position would they extend the vote to French/Italian/etc. Our call.

Good for Andy - he would be in a no win situation if he declared an allegiance to either side.

Well done, Andy.    Glad you enjoy the positivity in the States - just as well you don't read the match threads on MW.

Andy is wise to keep his opinions whether Scotland should go it alone, to himself  I wish people would leave him alone on this issue  He's a tennis player and not a politician

Very sensible to not say anything about it. Regardless of our opinions about the referendum, whatever he says will lead him to get criticised from one side or the other. If he says he'll vote Yes he'll be branded anti-English, if he says he'll vote No he'll get all kinds of abuse as well.

It would be nice if people could be open about subjects like this and have people just respect your opinion, but we know that won't happen so it's best to just sidestep it altogether.

Taken from today's Sunday Times ':  'Alex Salmond acted illegally by denying exiled Scots a vote in the Independence Referendum according to one of Britain's leading QCs.  Aidan O'Neill, an expert in EU law, said the decision has good prospects of being overturned in a judicial review.'

Seemingly, there is a group of influential England based Scots, including Kenny Logan and Alex McLeish who are gathering support to mount the legal challenge in the hope of overturning Salmond's decision.  If the case comes to court and a ruling has not been given before September 18th, it may well delay the referendum.

Why should people who do not live in Scotland vote in a referendum which is going to have a massive impact on our country, they could swing the vote which would be very unfair when they no longer reside here.  Leave is resident scots to vote on what we want for us and our country.

Because as much as you don't like it, it kind of does also affect the other countries its voting to split from?

Maybe not 'influential' in your book but they have the money to mount the challenge and in so doing delay the referendum.
