Sepp Blatter is on my Sheldon Cooper list of mortal enemies. Can't stand the crooked old get.

For the life of me I can't understand why a socialist would vote no, unless they value solidarity as part of the UK as more important than potentially achieving something more in an independent Scotland

 

This. But, yes, solidarity with Liverpool dockers rather than Edinburgh lawyers was always the reason I was given. A strange one when you dig down into it, but hey ho.

Older guy at my work is a dyed in the wool socialist, one who goes out there and does the door knocking, stalls and so on. Lifetime member of the Labour Party. And, fwiw, a staunch No voter, although not aggressively anti-Yes (just believed No was the way to go). Walked into my work this morning and told me he'd left the party and joined the SSP. The views of the remaining members of his branch were so far removed from trafitional Labour values that he felt he had no alternative. Are we really witnessing the strange death of Labour in Scotland? It would seem so.

Well, 7 hours in and his attitude is already better (although my mum having a chat with him might have helped). He's now away out playing - that wouldn't have happened if he was on Xbox (although the sneaky wee sh!te is probably across the road playing with someone else's console).
