In spite of some plot holes and what looked like a bit of revisiting, I enjoyed it.  Love this "dark doc." Matt Smith seemed a bit lightweight to me.
If you haven't already read it, can I recommend Douglas Adams' "Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy?" It's simply brilliant and the creature who sniffs out guilt is clearly a rip off from there!

Sorry if that's how you took it but I was certainly not setting out to dismiss any campaign. I simply responded to the point that independence was important to "most Scots" with the verified fact that the majority (62%) didn't vote for it. Yes, a significant number of people did vote for it and the Government will have to take notice of that. But most voters didn't vote for it.  As for assumption those who didn't vote would have voted No, you can't say that for sure but effectively they are No votes at the end of the day. I find it very hard to believe that anyone who wanted independence chose not to vote.

Also are people really complaining that promises have already been broken? Pretty sure it takes a bit of time to make major constitutional change, much like it would have taken time for independence to actually go through had it been voted for.
My apologies for the misunderstanding Invisibleman.  You're definitely right about the Yes voters, but, although I basically agree with what you say, I'd assume that those who didn't vote just simply weren't interested so didn't bother to do so, although I suspect there could have been an element of complacency on the part of some of those who were against independence because they were so sure the outcome would be No.

Also I've not heard anyone complaining about promises being broken, and if they have then they must be incredibly naive.  The wheels of government never move quickly at the best of times, so why should they do so now, although I do think that with a General Election taking place next May minds at Westminster could be a lot more focussed than they might normally be.

Not the vote that's been in the news everywhere but we had our general election yesterday. The incumbent party (Conservative equivalent) remained in power for a third term and increased their majority. In fact the last two times they needed a couple of minor parties with the odd seat to join them but this time won enough seats to govern alone.

Yes, I did mean 'those who voted' and not 'electorate, but why the assumption that the 15% who didn't vote would have voted No?  Also maybe you didn't see the debate held in Glasgow's Hydro, which seats 13,00 and was full, where the audience was comprised entirely of 16 and 17 year olds.  Impressionable?  I certainly didn't think so - and, with respect to the Invisibleman, it seemed to me that he was setting out to the dismiss the Yes campaign, so was hardly impartial.
