Even if we lose the referendum the fight is not finished we fight on , I don't intend to carry on for another 40 years so I am prepared to carry on and I think many of you think the same.I may die but the fight for independence continues! Fuck the Union,fuck the Brits we don't stop trying until we are free! :cuddy: :saltire: Saor Alba a' nis Alba ghu heath!

This always was a scenario.

However the fact that the No vote barely won should hearten folk. Its days are numbered.

New members flooding in to the SSP, Greens and especially the SNP.

SDA discussing UDI.

Anecdotal evidence from across NatNet of mass telebhisean dumpings.

I could be very wrong, but it seems to me that the "no" voters are sort of put on the defensive here. They might want to be happy that they have won, but WHAT have they won? Yet the "Yes" side is all in a mood of "OK, next round ,then?

We supposed "losers" are in fact more hopeful and forward-looking than the winners. It must be very strange for them. And that nasty little show in George Square in Glasgow showed them up a bit.

Oh, when they think, and listen to Cameron (and Miliband), some sadness will come, and some cognitive dissonance,
A fair amount of "no" voters might have thought they were being wise (and eating their cereal), but soon wake up to what they have done. Cereal is pap; need real food and real power.

They might eventually stop eating the cereal - is it a bit like drinking the Kool-Aid? - and look for a better society.

Oh well, not this year, but soon come.

The count I was at revealed the unholy alliance between the Red Tories and the Blue Tories. They were like chalk and cheese though. After the result was announced the Red Tories were silly enough to mount a mini-celebration. The Blue Tories couldn't get out the hall quick enough. From them there was an overwhelming aura of relief.

I've heard that some No voters have already given up on cereal, have declared themselves mistaken at the vote and have signed the YES Declaration.

I always knew that many would only complete their journeys to YES after the Big Vote; I just didn't expect it to be in the circumstances we now find ourselves in.

Pyrrhic Victory. We Will Win.

Lets hope that with a New First Minister and a New Cabinet Government, Alex will lead a 40+ Legion of SNP MP's to Westminster? :saltire: This is not the beginning of the end, this is the end of the beginning. 70+ SNP MSP's plus SSP/Greens ect for May 2016. :clap: Win Glasgow, and Stirling Councils for May 2017. :score10: Hopefully get another bite of the cherry no later than May 2019. Maybe then that 55% will go to us. YES. :matesdrunk:

Gordon Brown can go and fuck himself. Glass eyed bastard. :horsekeech:

Stephen.

The number of adults who didn't vote exceeds No's majority.

Of course, added on to "No", this makes for an increased majority against "Yes", but added on to "Yes", it tells us the majority of Scots did NOT vote for the union.
