The Buzz 64


On Belleveue Road Edinburgh where I am staying, the number of houses or apartments sporting yes posters had suddenly gone up from 13 to 23, including some great homemade efforts. The No count remained stationary at eleven. I noticed new yes posters in Broughton Street and Albany Street too. There seems a huge last minute proclamation of belief – which is precisely what Andy Murray has done too. In a last gasp of silly bias, the BBC claimed that his tweet was ambiguous, and then stopped reporting it at all. This is Andy Murray’s “ambiguous” tweet.

“Huge day for Scotland today! No campaign negativity last few days totally swayed my view on it. Excited to see the outcome. Let’s do this!”

People with Yes badges stopping and talking to each other on the street. The central belt looking very good indeed. Currently campaigning in Larbert, then Stirling, then Alloa.

    Good luck with your final leg of campaigning, Craig. By this time tomorrow, we will have witnessed history in the making.

  • Mary

    That’s a new one on me Doug!

    Wonder if they have signed up Wee Duggie, Gordon Brown and Jim Murphy, all avowed Zionists.

  • Peter Neary-Chaplin

    Just heard from a friend in Scotland that a polling station in Falkirk has closed already due to 100% turnout. Never thought I’d hear this in my lifetime.

  • Fedup

    No wonder they don’t want an independent foreign policy.

    Have you not noticed the “chosen” keyboard warriors assigned to this blog unanimously have been on the “no” side?

    The kind of Scottish democracy is the death-knell for the zionist vermin, and these racist supremacist scum know that fact all too well.

    Go Scotland and good luck.

    “Just heard from a friend in Scotland that a polling station in Falkirk has closed already due to 100% turnout. Never thought I’d hear this in my lifetime.”

    They should leave it open a bit longer – see if they can’t get it to 125%, or even higher 🙂

    It might also mean that results could be in earlier than we thought, if some counting can start hours before official closing time.

    Go Scotland! (as in, Go! Literally!)

    btw Ben – Anon1 wasn’t the only one being ironic on that exchange

    Got to think it through, look ahead to the outcome. In this case earplugs for the far-flung Scottish pub where we’ll start out (in case there are bagpipes) and a bottle and a half of malt whisky for the early indications.

  • Juteman

    Some worrying reports on ‘Wings’ of folk being turned away at the polling station. Told they have already voted by post.

  • Ruth

    It seems to me there is a strong possibility the election has been rigged.

    Extraordinarily there are no exit polls which could be used as a check on the results which could be/have been tampered with quite easily especially the postal votes,

    The postal votes should be/have been counted separately to check that they conform with the results from the ballot boxes.

    The opinion polls don’t reflect views on the ground and may have been manipulated to conform with the rigged result.

    Independence for Scotland with loss of resources is not something Westminster could envisage and hence with their security service will do whatever to prevent.

    Radio Scotland reported 5pm that it was some sort of technical error and its now sorted, what I didn’t like though was the polling station, using pencils instead of pens to mark.

  • Gutter

    I think Anon1 has genuinely wanted you to vote ‘Yes’ all along. He knows that secession will cause disillusionment in Scotland and antagonise the English, which will lead to both electorates turning to the right.
    We will then never again threaten the new world order which serves him and his disgusting parasitic like so well.
    What better way to get people to vote ‘Yes’ than to have the ‘No’ campaign represented by obnoxious sneering right-wing dickheads like him?

  • Tony_0pmoc

    I kinda thought about placing a bet, but this isn’t about money or personality or even politics. Its about something far more important than that. The future of the human race.

    Has anyone seen this. I kind of cribbed it from looking deeper into Glenn’s post above…

    http://wearedando.com/google-trends-predicting-yes-vote-scottish-referendum/

    They will never understand. It’s not in their mindset.

    Daniel, I think Craig should be aiming higher than diplomat (good idea though).

    I think Anon1 has genuinely wanted you to vote ‘Yes’ all along….etc

    I think he’s been playing at No to associate No with obnoxious, sneering dickheads before performing a handbrake turn to allow NuLabour fearmongers to propose that obnoxious, sneering dickheads are our only salvation from the Right.

    In England, we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Farage (who is more of a patriot in his Stone Age fashion than anything else we’ve got after Scotland goes) and hearing a lot less about PC…. goodbye the last dregs of a welfare system, though even Nigel probably pays more attention to the grass roots than the tripartite arses of the current House of Commons. Don’t thank the SNP for this if it happens, btw. Thank the newly unelectable Tories, for not putting that third option on the ballot paper.

    In Scotland,the heirs of Maxton and MacLean* may well wake up from the nightmare of consumer-capitalist Blairism and rediscover some discarded principles. And will you NuLabour Unionists not be delighted to see that your former colony embodies those fine principles? My guess is, you won’t.

    *Maxton asked “for no greater task in life than to make the English-ridden, capitalist-ridden, landowner-ridden Scotland into a free Scottish Socialist Commonwealth”. He went on to say that “with Scottish brains and courage … we could do more in five years in a Scottish parliament than would be produced by 25 or 30 years heartbreaking working in the British House of Commons”….the Red Clydesiders … wanted Home Rule in the sense of the full, de facto autonomy already enjoyed by Australia and New Zealand.

  • Habbabkuk (La vita è bella) !

    Based on my reading of events on the ground and also of the correspondence on this blog, one observation and a couple of predictions.

    Observation.

    Contrary to the confident predictions of several on this blog, there have been no terrorist attacks, whether genuine or of a false-flag nature, nor any other attempts to influence the outcome by acts of disruption on the part of Westmonister, Whitehall, the secret services or anyone else, .in the run-up to this referendum.

    Therefore, those predictions have revealed themselves to be scare-mongering bollocks, and those responsible have shown that they are – to use Mr Scorgie’s latest favourite word – tossers.

    It would be gracious if those responsible would now return to this blog and admit that they were indeed talking bollocks.

    Should they however feel unable to do so, I offer them (because Habbabkuk IS gracious) the option of declaring solemnly that those false-flag terrorist attacks WOULD have happened but for their timely warnings on this blog.

    Predictions.

    I. In the event of the Noes winning narrowly

    a) There will immediately be cries of ballot-rigging and “we wuz robbed”. Those cries will continue even after those accusations have been investigated and declared unfounded. There will, of course, be no such doubts and scruples should the Yessers win by a similarly small margin;

    b) The Nationalists will be demanding another referendum within a few years, inter alia on the basis that almost half of those who voted did so in favour of independence; alternatively, they will point with indignation to the fact (if applicable) that the Noes represent less than an absolute majority of those who were eligible to vote (and perhaps even that they represent less than 50% of the entire population of Scotland, babies in swaddling clothed included).

    c) Mr Salmond and his govt. will resign as quickly and graciously as Mr Heath did in early 1974 (for the benefit of young readers: NOT).

    II. In the event of the Yessers winning, narrowly or otherwise

    a) Mr Salmond and his govt. will not resign and call for a general election so as to get an independent Scotland off to a completely new start (including for the forthcoming negotiations on separation with rUK);

    b) Mr Salmond and his govt. will attempt to extract the maximum possible from the rUK (especially financially) and ask for various special favours which at first sight would not seem to accord with the complete independence many Scots thought they were voting for (example: a currency union with rUK);

    c) An independent Scotland will behave as ethically and morally as any other Western govt or indeed any govt. anywhere – no more and no less.

    Tony,

    What is that has brought about the marked stylistic change in your posts? Where is the stream of consciousness?

  • Habbabkuk (La vita è bella) !

    Here we go – we’re off already! 🙂

    ** “Some worrying reports on ‘Wings’ of folk being turned away at the polling station. Told they have already voted by post.”

    and

    “Extraordinarily there are no exit polls which could be used as a check on the results which could be/have been tampered with quite easily especially the postal votes,

    The postal votes should be/have been counted separately to check that they conform with the results from the ballot boxes.

    Habbabkuk’s comment on the first point above : exit polls are not part of the official election process and have never been in any UK election. They are things organised by private companies or the political parties contesting the election. There was nothing to prevent the Yessers organising their own exit polls.

    The following three points are to silly to bother addressing.

    Habbabkuk for good losers!

    Fool,

    Give us a chance mate. It’s only 19:46.

    That will come later.

    I hope you enjoy it.

    “Craig’s new job as Scotland’s ambassador is imminent.”

    ________________

    I might just offer my thoughts on that in due course.

  • fool

    I do your a better read than that than James Joyce. I will be up late watching the results. This talk about Craig as ambassador – which country? Russia I think that should stop Scotland entering into any dodgy alliance.

  • Republicofscotland

    I might just offer my thoughts on that in due course.
    —————-

    Lets not, I’m sure most people don’t want to know your tedious thoughts, do us a favour and write them down, put them in a bottle, and chuck it in the sea, hopefully your, ranting will never wash ashore,job done.

  • Tony_0pmoc

    Habbabkuk (La Vita È Bella) !,

    I rarely post here now, but I often have a look.

    Sometimes I have seen you talking to yourself 7 times in a row…and getting absolutely no response….

    That is even worse than me a few years ago after 10 pints of Speckled Hen….I don’t think I ever did as many as 7 in a row…but yes, I do realise I sometimes wrote an awful lot of bollocks…but in no way was I as boring as you.

    I suggest you ban yourself…that’s what I did. I even asked the moderator to ban me and told him how…

    How on earth do they put up with you?

    They are incredibly tolerant here.

    Tony

  • Tony M

    Could you all please not feed the trolls, thanks. I know they are particularly obnoxious and unhinged, but that is all the more reason to shun them in the hope they’ll seek the help that we are unable and unwilling to give them. Many of you too, could do with making improvements in your grammar, speeling and composition. Note especially, there should be one space after a comma and two spaces after a full-stop, it isn’t difficult. See.

    New trolls please.

  • Gutter

    Ba’al:
    I can’t make head nor tail of your first paragraph. Are you accusing me of being a closet New Labourite? Or what?
    Then you say
    “After Scotland goes, in England we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Farage and hearing a lot less about PC…. goodbye
    the last dregs of a welfare system”
    So, you agree with me it will be a disaster for us all? Or are you in favour of those things?
    …And we only hear about ‘PC’ from right-wing halfwits anyway.
    I’m genuinely puzzled by your entire comment.

  • Tony_0pmoc

    Read and learn and see from the guy’s on the ground.

    I am in awe.

    I know its only a few yet..but I hadn’t logged on to my tonyopmoc youtube account in several years…I’m amazed…I could remember the password..and I am amazed all the 13 videos are still there..well not really…they are all from Westminster about Torture

    Craig Murray – Torture 1 of 7 – YouTube 28 Apr 2009 – Uploaded by tonyopmoc

    I’m quite proud of that..I was about to turn up there as a witness..and Craig asked on his blog can anyone record it..I didn’t know how to do it..but did.

    I’ve been talking to people on here live…There’s hundreds there…soon be thousands and its live from Glasgow…Hi Mark. Sound and Video..They’ve even got a Cameraman and he zooms and pans -I’ve asked him to get a microphone in the crowd…
