MSPs to debate independence bill

Is it not time we just got it over with? I mean, throughout the country and in every region. Should this union remain in place? Because until we have the referendum and can put whatever results behind us, dangerous and divisive people are going to continue to create upset and distrust among the peoples of these islands.

I am a unionist, but I'm also a great believer in democracy. It is right and proper that we all have a chance to decide on the future of the United Kingdom (not just individual regions making unilateral decisions whilst others don't get that chance).

My favourite quote from this article comes from an SNP spokesperson:

"He said Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill's controversial decision to grant compassionate release to the Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi showed nationalist ministers were capable of making big decisions."

Yes, a ringing endorsement of the SNP's credentials: either they can't stand allowing the justice system to serve the people of Scotland properly or they take orders from a British New Labour Government. Either way, they are wrong.
