With a No vote successfully secured senior Conservatives have come out of the shadows to demand that David Cameron renege on his “reckless” promise to maintain Scotland’s generous funding settlement from Westminster.
So… is it too early to say I told you so?
Tumblr, can you please spread awareness of the riots currently breaking out in Glasgow city centre in George Square -
Union supporters have begun rioting in the city waving Union Jacks, saluting Nazis and attacking nationalists.
Absolutely nothing is being reported on BBC News, Sky News or ITV news! Spread the word!
We’ve never been more scared. Please pray for us.
My yes voting neighbours car has just been smashed by a squad of 12 no voters. It’s suspected they’ve smashed about 4 more on the way. My uncle almost got attacked for trying to chase them off. I’m in Livingston and the police are not coming
This is not Glasgow this is 35 miles away
Please everyone in Scotland brace yourselves and hide all yes stickers
Ah Sky news calls the events in George Square tonight a “boisterous celebration”. Not really a lot from the BBC, but you can bet your fucking house on it if a Yes supporter threw an egg they’d be vilified for weeks.
This… this is the true face of ugly nationalism. Where is the fluffy unionism? Where is the “don’t leave Scotland, we love you”? Hardly apparent when your own country, sorry, region’s flag is ripped from a young girl’s hands and set on fire. The face of sectarianism keeps dragging us back when we try to move forward.
Urgh. This is a sickening end to what was meant to be an engaging political process. Cling to your empire all you want, it will end one day, and I hope that day will come soon.
Sky news just spoke to a reporter in Glasgow and had to cut the live thread because he was attacked and shouted at by no voters, waving the British flag, doing nazi salutes and burning the saltire.
No Voters Surrounding Young Girls
I’m going to be sick. I am terrified for this girl.
'Grab her phone' What the fuck.

dont ignore this.
there is NO coverage of the rioting on the news which is why its so important that you dont ignore this.
please stay safe if you live in scotland.
this is fucking terrifying
this is not the scotland we want
If the vote was fair play, with the no campaign showing clear signs of having won without cheating, or rigging involved then I would have no problem accepting that they won, and attempting to move on from a disappointing result. After all, it’s what the majority wants. But there is already countless evidence of Yes votes being placed in the no pile, people rubbing out yes crosses and ticking the no box, suspicious “fire alarms” going off in counting buildings, and ballot boxes being opened with perfectly folded votes inside. This was not a fair vote, by far. And I know a re-vote is not in question as both Cameron and Salmond (Who has also resigned) have made that pretty clear, but this is not okay at all. They cannot expect us to be silent about this and accept defeat when we lost by 5%.
5% is not alot to lose by, and with all the fowl play that’s been going on, theres a chance that 5% might not be accurate, theres the slightest chance we actually won. I’m not just saying this because I’m disappointed with the results, of course i’m disappointed but thats what happens in votes, sometimes you lose, because it’s not what you want as an individual its what the majority wants. I have no problem in the slightest accepting defeat and shaking the hands of the winners if they had voted sincerely, and properly and respectfully, but they did the complete opposite, and it’s only just for a re vote, or in the very least a re -count. Chances are results will still be a no, but that’s not the point I’m trying to make. Cameron needs to stand up for us scots if he’s going to continue to be our “leader” and “on our side” and give us the vote we deserve, the fair vote that we deserve.
gonna be reblogging a lot of the shitstorm that’s happening in glasgow/scotland. I’ll be using the tag ‘you voted no’ if you wanna blacklist it.
What did they lie about? (Sorry I'm not Scottish I don't really know much about the whole thing)
The whole argument that Scotland couldn’t make it on its own was a lie. They constantly stated it as fact when it’s just not true. Scotland would flourish on its own.
Not only that, the three party leaders promised that they wouldn’t get involved with the debates, that they’d leave it up to the Better Together campaign.
But when it looked like Scotland was gonna vote Yes? Well, they broke that promise and all three not only signed a document saying they’d give Scotland more powers days before the vote but also all cancelled events and came to Scotland.
If Scotland looked like it was going to vote no? They’d have kept their promise and Scotland wouldn’t be getting extra powers now (as long as they keep their word). They didn’t even outline what those powers were. Just that we’d get more.
"He picked up the rusting Handles which flickered into life; ‘Hello,Sweetie’ it said, using the phrase River Song usually emplyed to greet the Doctor. ‘Don’t call me sweetie,’ said the old Time Lord. ‘It is your preferred form of address,’ stated the Cyberhead. ‘If you’re a hot space lady,’ replied the Doctor. ‘You’re a metal head, how’s that going to work?’ ‘Spoilers’ responded Handles, using another of River’s phrases. ‘Stop it,’ said the Doctor."

What did JK do?
She was the single largest donator to the Better Together campaign against Scottish Independence. I wouldn’t have had a problem with it, if the campaign hadn’t lied, threatened, blackmailed and bribed for votes.
Did you see JK Rowling's views on independence? I was wondering what your thoughts were on that.
Her views are ones I disagree with, but that’s fine. It’s her actions I have issue with.
