Just thought that too

The fucking idiot has tried to clean up his grammar, punctuation and inappropriate use of capitalisation.

He's failed badly on all three, whilst using the same sentence patterns as before and all of the same biases.

An utterly tragic individual.

I reckon he'll last around a week this time before having a meltdown or letting his insular thinking betray him.

I thought an official poll from a few years back had Yes as like 95% or something? How has that dropped so much now? Hope they don't shit their pants.

Looks like they are still going to vote yes I suppose the question is whether it is by a large enough majority to give it an air of legitimacy.

A small turnout and a massive Si win would be just as problematic imo. Arguably more so than a small win for no and big turnout.

The bookies have it as Yes and the Pollsters as No because the Bookies don't think the no voters will turn up for an illegal referendum. As someone whose lumped on No I hope they do.

I had a quick look at the recent polling and that one shown on the last page was one of very few that give NO a lead.  Most are YES, and all that are based on those guaranteed to vote are very strongly YES.

Jean claude Juncker has today admitted that the EU will respect the will of the Catalan people in the event of a Yes vote on the 1st of October but in the same sentence says he respects what the Spanish government and courts are trying to do to stop it.....talk aboot sittin on the fence :huh:

Juncker hasn't got a say in it.  If Spain says no then no it is.

And the logic behind this is?

Constitutional law.  The automatic right to self determination is a myth.

Have you told the UN? I think they'd disagree with you.

The only reason Scotland got a referendum was that Westminster allowed it.  The UN position was around the issue of decolonisation, not the splitting apart of existing states.

The UN position is enshrined in its charter. Quite simply, all peoples have the right to self-determination.

Calling something a right is meaningless unless it's enforceable. The UN did not intend North Berwick to be able to declare itself an independent nation and set up an offshore banking sector.
