It's now only a few days until we go to the polls to vote for or against independence for Scotland. The electioneering activities of both Yes Scotland and Better Together reach a climax this weekend, with Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon calling today the "biggest campaign day in Scottish political history". As we head towards what will be a momentous day for the country, I thought we might take another poll of voting intentions*, asking the same question which will be put to the people of Scotland on 18 September 2014.

Also, please share your thoughts on why you will (or would) vote Yes or No. In posting a reply please consider your thoughts on some of the following points:
  1. What is the single most important issue?
  2. Have you been swayed by one side?
  3. Have you been impressed by any politicians?
  4. Has the media reporting of the referendum been fair?
  5. Will the result have a long term effect on how we live?
  6. Do you just want it all to be over?
I've produced a short video just to remind us all that we have a beautiful country, and that we should not let fear get in the way of what we think is best for Scotland.

This topic is not meant to replace the extensive Scottish Independence discussion topic, but is, rather, intended to capture in a non-judgemental and non-argumentative way a snapshot of members' observations, reflections and thoughts as we approach the referendum.

* Our poll is for everyone, so you can vote in the poll even though you are a Glaswegian who is currently living overseas. (The poll can't be accessed on iPads, sorry.)

Update: embedded poll stopped working on Monday! Stats then were:

Yes: 259 Votes (55%) // No: 215 Votes (45%)
