It is not a favor that English is willing to grant Scots a vote, but John Bull is too old to stop it, as the old days of the Empire does go with the wind. However, John Bull still keeps bully other nations along with bully Uncle Sam, launching the wars everywhere.

Well, because English cannot afford a civil war as it has mired itself in recession. John Bull has no choice, incapacity.

That's why English has to let Scots vote.

Incapacity =/= democracy.

Please do this simplest math by your own self.  I hope you won't fail to understand with your brains. :)

A rigged vote with half a million English-born voters included minus 750,000 Scottish-born voters denied a vote, is not a free vote, and definitely is NOT DEMOCRACY.

No no, just more nonsense, the vote is happening, it is a free vote, that is democracy, you are unhappy as you think your side will not win so you advocate people a long way from where you are to fight against what the majority wish.

Nonsense again, the vote affects those who live there, if you do not live there why have the right to vote? On your logic as it alters the make up of the UK then all the UK should have a free vote, not just those in Scotland, that way the yes camp may win.

The format is what was requested by the Yes brigade, they even lowered the voting age to satisfy the yes brigade now when is looks like they will loose you want to change the goal posts, pathetic

This is factual fact, but not nonsense. Please look up your own history book and tell us how many wars you English launched against Irish, Sctts.

How did William Wallace die? He is a hero who is always engraved on the mind of Scottish people. His favorite poem is reverberating everywhere of Scotland. English to Scots is nothing more than an oppressive slave driver, and greedy exploiter.

Freedom is best, I tell thee true, of all things to be won.
Then never live within the bond of slavery, my son
