I thought about flying the Union Jack

Apparently, we're now being urged to "fly the Saltire to persuade voters in Scotland to reject independence".

Odd, isn't it? I'd have the ought the obvious flag for Unionists to fly would be the ... er ... Union Jack. But when politicians are gripped by panic, they lose all sense of reason.

     

By that inverted logic, I suppose they would take the Union Jack to be a sign of support for an independent Scotland.

Well, I thought about buying one ... but just couldn't bring myself to do it. They wouldn't get the joke.

I take it you're pleased with the latest polls?

I'm delighted by the recent YouGov and TNS-BMRB polls, 21:08. But I also think that all polls have tended to underestimate the fact that a very large percentage of those who don't normally vote, especially from more disadvantaged communities, are going to vote this time ... and are going to vote Yes.

I therefore expect the margin of the Yes vote to be much larger than these polls are predicting. Perhaps 53% to 47%. In fact if the turnout is over 85%, it might reach 55% to 45%.
