Although China does not offiically endorse or oppose the independence of Scotland, as objective individuals watching the Scottish people wake up from their centuries-old slumber as vassals and serfs of the English lords and ladies, we cannot but sigh that what Hong Kong has achieved since independence from England, Scotland may not be as fortunate to experience.

If the polls are right, that 49% of voters are against their own independence as a country, and only 42% are in favor of Scotland's independence.  Just looking at the numbers of the undecideds, of 9%, Scotland's chance of achieving FULL DEMOCRACY under the onslaught of the black knights of the English empire is a slim 1 out of 9.  Maybe, we should henceforth coin the phrase, "The Chance of a Scotsman" to replace the once dismal "Chance of a Chinaman" as being even worse!

But with nearly half of its population awakened to the absolute necessity of independence from England, the continuation of the vassalage of Scotland does not ring well.  In fact, its chance of staying around may be even worse than the "Chance of a Scotsman" if we factor in the effect of time.  The stone of destiny is in Scotland, not England.

Gordon Brown is a very reasonable man, a Scot, to be sure.  Certainly, he will have to answer to history for his words and deeds in the next five days.  Words and deeds that will either make him the hero of his people, or make him their shame.  Of all people, he should know how his kinsmen are still being treated as vassals in the highest rungs of English power.

Why can he not say the simple word, "YES!" and change the history of Scotland forever???

You seem to missunderstand democracy, if the people vote to stay in the Union then that is democracy at work!

Gordon Brown was never reasonable, the guy was a failure in the end.

HOW THE SCOTTISH REFERENDUM WAS RIGGED BY LONDON.

With the vote coming down to a 1-2% difference between the supporters and rejectors of Scottish independence, the Scottish people have suddenly realized that the vote to validate their will has been rigged, because half a million of the voters are born in England, while three quarters of a million Scottish born persons are denied a vote because they happen to be living in England at present.  

So, how can one expect this vote to represent the will of the Scottish people?

And now, they are blaming Salmond for being less photogenic than his English counterparts as THE explanation why these non-Scots are, of course, not voting for Scottish independence!

This referendum is turning uglier by the minute as foreigners lay claim to the will of the Scottish people and demand to set their future for them, to make matters worse, in the name of the people born in Scotland!!!

Is this the "DEMOCRACY" that any people can expect from the U.K.?  

Only 83% of the voters in this referendum are born in Scotland.  10% are born in England or Wales.  Another 7% were born in Poland, India and the Republic of Ireland.  Not that these folks are to blame.  Not at all, but number-wise, they have far less at stake in Scotland than those who never left the land of their birth and will never do so.

So, let all the so-called "DEMOCRACY MOVEMENTS" supported by the English be likewise regarded.  As shams, no matter how seemingly serious they take the vote in the public eye.  The vote has been fixed, so let it happen!

Your comment is ridiculous.

That is not real democracy of English, but you guys cannot stop the trend of history for enslaved people to seek freedom as the empire on which the Sun never sets is now going to its twilight years.

Please tell us the Ameircans won their independence via vote or war? And how many wars English launch to invade other countries and made them its colonies?

It is just self-delusion that you still want to call that democracy. You can only fool yourself, but you cannot make fool of Scottish people and the rest of the world.

So pray tell me if giving all the residents of Scotland a free vote on their future is not democracy what is? With a free vote the only need for war is when the loosers will not accept the defeat, in America there was no vote first hence the war. Do you think that if the yes campaign looses then the yes people should go to war over it? That is not democracy and is foolish. What makes you think the vote is fixed? You come accross as a bad loser who can not accept reality.
