I am loving the fact that you think it will be a landslide to the No vote – you obviously do not live up here and are not witnessing what is happening.  They took a poll of the city’s in Scotland and they were all majority in favour of Yes.  There is no bullying and intimidation on the streets – there is just good natured exchanging of views.  I have been to a few Yes events and there have been BT folk there and I can say I have not witnessed anything like is being reported in the media.
There is a big surge for Yes up here which you will not be aware of as it is not reported in the media – fact !!!
I also take exception to saying that we are being swept along in a tide of kilts, heather and patriotisms – no we are not – we are standing up for a better and fairer Scotland.  Sure there are risks but personally they are risks that I think will be safer than the very real risk of the 2015 General Election returning a coalition of Tory and UKIP.  Boris Johnston and Nigel Farage leading the UK our of the EU and persecuting anyone who does not fit their criteria.
As I have said am not a nationalist nor am I the biggest fan of Alex Salmond, but he is not a dictator, he is a good politician.  We have not been brainwashed there have been many interesting facets to this debate in particular the rising of the Green Party has been good to watch and Patrick Harvie has debated extremely well. 
I have already voted via a postal vote so the introduction of more powers is garbage it’s the price they pay for being too complacent and thinking we would reject Independence. 
The rally in Trafalgar Square last night was condescending to hear Bob Geldof a guy who admirably rallied to “feed the world” but ignores the increasing number of Food Banks in the UK ????  There are 45 Food Banks in Aberdeen – we are the Oil Capitol of Europe – that says to me time for change and we are taking it.
I don’t think it it going to be the walkover that people are predicting – the race to come to Scotland a week before the referendum by Cameron and co is just actually an insult that coupled with Boris Johnson publically stating that there will be no powers for Scotland and that we will effectively pay the price for our audacity!!!

Sorry rant over but can’t wait till Friday morning……….

Well Bennie..... if you listen to radio 4, did you not hear what they were saying only the other day about the thousands of voting papers that have gone missing? Did you not hear the lady who's been a helper on voting days for years say she'd never known anything like it? No.....I'm sure you didn't.....otherwise you'd have mentioned that on here too!



No I missed this Please give further details What has this got to do with my wanting a NO vote on Thursday?

It's lovely MA but the roads were full of potholes when we went six or seven years ago. Most fascinating were the roads up Mount Etna with all the scenes of bygone, though fairly recent eruptions, etc. Our flight was 4 hours delayed out from Gatwick, we got there in the dark and had to pick up the hire car and travel over badly lit and pot-holed roads, some with steep drops, to get to our destination. TBH I was terrified, a nightmare journey, our destination was excellent and a meal awaited in our room. Sure you will have a super holiday.

Thanks for both the confirmation that it is a good place and the warning about the roads!

Flights may be a problem between these events but it is good to remember that Andy does take a private plane occasionally (believe he has given Tsonga a lift in the past). This probably isn't practical on long-haul but there's always first class, think he can afford it - just!

@Nigel - this might explain why.

It was just the matches that cause the palpitations! At that time as you say Andy was already qualified. Gozo was lovely but we had some tremendous thunderstorms that cut the power and blew out a window too! Then the sun shone and it was mega warm half an hour later. I am hoping that Sicily (Montalbano area) is as lovely!

I don't see Andy playing Stockholm unless he has an early exit in Shanghai. Playing four weeks in a row with all the travel that entails seems like too much otherwise. Having a week off and then entering Valencia (if he wants an extra tournament for race points) would probably be a better idea. More points on offer in Valencia too.

I think that is very likely although he could do Stockholm just to try to improve another of his twenty point scores. No loss to go if he loses as he can have a good break there. Nice place. Shenzen will do another points upgrade. Then he could go for the last 500 for a few extra points if needed. Better to get some points scored rather than to leave it all to Paris? One of his close rivals in the race conceivably might overtake with a final spot in last two events before WTF!

Seriously, how can anyone look at Salmond and fail to see an odious, slimy creep on a massive power trip?
That may well be Nigel, but 'this isn't about' Salmond! The vote is predicted to be a close run thing, so if the NOs 'do' win by a landslide as you predicted, then the Scottish people will know they've been 'done over' for the second time in 307 years and they will know who that'll be down to.....The same sort of scum that it was last time!
