    Questiontime

    Not one round of applause for the incredibly thick UKIP woman but plenty for Alex Salmond. Good work Liverpool audience!

    Scottish Independence, yay or nay?

    Even including watching a certain sport which is discussed elsewhere on this website I've never ever like this in my life before: excited, exhilarated, nervous, optimistic, pessimistic ... Don't really know what the result will be after tomorrow's vote but I do believe I'm on the right side of this debate. Why would anyone not want more influence over the life they lead, the city they live in, the way you're seen in the world? This is the right thing to do, not just for Scotland but for the people or England, Wales, Northern Ireland ... and the world. I just hope enough people living here feel the same way.

    The No campaign's use of the word "foreigner" says a lot about them. Narrow minded bigotry which is turning people towards voting Yes.

    What anti-Englishness? They were protesting against BBC bias.

    Wee video on the BBC's coverage of yesterday's events - huge Yes rally in Buchanan St, Glasgow (with a much smaller No event in Sauchiehall St) and pro-union march of 10,000 Catholic-hating bigots in Edinburgh: https://www.youtube.com/embed/TSOu8f549iM

    Agreed, it's a morose dirge about a battle that took place 700 years ago. Something more modern required, I'd go with the obvious choice of 'George Square Thatcher Death Party' by Mogwai.

    Galloway not sounding too optimistic about the chances of a No victory here: http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/scottish-independence-the-political-class-is-doing-what-hitler-couldnt--destroying-britain-9730260.html

    Can't view that YouTube video now but I'll have a look; I've seen often enough recently how the BBC can misrepresent but going by the quotes on the BBC article Mook posted I agree with Rape Crisis. Either way, I don't like Galloway and I do think Labour should have put someone up for the debate. They don't seem to be thinking much about how they've lost Scotland.

    'Date rape' was the wrong term to use - retracted. I agree wholeheartedly with Rape Crisis' view on what he did say.

    An absolute tit of a man. Surely Better Together could put forward a Labour MP to make their case rather than a guy who was expelled from their party. Embarrassing seeing him on the side of the Tories and bankers.

    Scottish Independence, yay or nay?

    True. I've heard him saying some outrageous things over the years including his view that date rape is just "bad sexual eitquette". I can't see why loads of teenagers would just make it up bit maybe the misheard him and the BBC edited that bit out anyway. There were 100 Labour MPs in Glasgow yesterday; they refused to put one forward for that debate and got Galloway to represent them instead. No wonder Scottish Labour voters are turning away from them in their thousands.

    There's a link above but I've not seen it in a mainstream national paper yet ... only one newspaper in Britain is supporting independence, the Sunday Herald. Lots of kids who were at the debate on Twitter saying the same thing; I believe them. If you don't, fair enough.

    Scottish Independence, yay or nay?

    Galloway raging at being called out on his "bad sexual etiquette" views and also accuses the BBC of inviting a biased 12,000 strong audience (when in fact they simply invited every school in Scotland). http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/politics/george-galloway-slams-patrick-harvie- 4206494 In reality the real bias shown by the BBC was asking kids to pretend to be No voters for post-debate interviews when they were actually Yes. http://perthgazette.co.uk/09/11/indyref/biased-bbc-yes-voters-were-told-to-say-no-to-independence-by-producers-during-a-debate-show/5796 Nigel Farage doing his bit for the Yes campaign today by visiting Glasgow. Would be better all round if everyone just ignored him but I'm sure plenty of people will turn up to give him pelters.

    Totally understandable but I hope you reconsider. Scotland is massively wealthy, we will not go bankrupt setting up our own public services. Is voting No not an even bigger gamble? We then gamble on putting up with whatever governments the rest of the UK picks for us ... Boris and Nigel are coming!
