This vote isn't about choosing between three or four insipid candidates, picking the best of a bad bunch or the lesser of two evils - its about choosing to reject those depressingly empty options for something better.
Of course there are risks but there are also opportunities - great opportunities. The notion that we need to be looked after by a London based establishment, that we couldn't do it as well or better ourselves; is outdated nonsense.
The notion that it is wiser to hand power to people who do not rely on our mandate than to award it to people who do - is fatuous.
Vote well today Scotland, because if you do not, no other vote will count for a very long time indeed.
Most of all though - vote with hope, not fear.
