Can you feel it?

Which ever way you're voting today, this is a day like no other. Never before in Scotland has a democratic vote meant as much as this one. From your brain, across your shoulder then down your arm through the tip of a tiny pencil hangs the balance. Even if you're voting No - although you'd be voting to give away power - you are voting with tangible capability.

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that we need to be looked after by a London based establishment, that we couldn't do it as well or better ourselves; is outdated nonsense.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.

Thanks for comment as always and I apologise if you have to jump through any hoops to do so. Its just that, I'm still being spammed by organisations who are certain I can't get it up or when it is up its not big enough or that I don't have anyone to get it up for.

Who knew blogging could be so bad for ones self-confidence?
