    Not if you're North of the Tweed-Solway line. Support for independence is now at 52%, and the SNP (which only recruits in Scotland) is now the third-largest political party in the UK (the only bigger parties are the UK-wide big two who form governments).
    Indyref2 - still, "Yes."

Instead it was a negative, we are all doomed and essentially seemed little more than a propaganda campaign.
      Hi Sergio and Ace

      Agreed, the coverage was hyperbolic, in part due to the media, but in the main by all the parties declining to actually discuss & debate the issues. One side was declaring Nirvana was around the corner, the other the End of Days. Its the same with US Media coverage of American politics and life. Each side espousing doom & gloom because of the other side.
      MSN & FNC are the two highly visible extremes of the spectrum, with a varying gamut in between.
