    Yes it's ours now.

    It's not for you.

    The leaked episodes are a smoke screen, the real next few episodes are all to promote a Yes vote.

    I think you've got too much time on your hands if this is the kind of tosh that concerns you.

    Besides, as I have said before, lots of planets have a Scotland. :)

    The Scottish agenda continues

    Steven Moffat just won an Emmy for writing His Last Vow.

    Seriously? That's probably my least favourite Sherlock episode.

    Well it's a good thing you don't get a voice then in voting for the Emmy's.

    "Best... thread.... eVER!"
    I love it. I, too, thought of the Python Scotsman sketch..... ;)
    I do find the timing interesting, considering the upcoming vote in Scotland.

    I did think of starting a thread with the title: "If Scotland vote Yes will Capaldi be forced to regenerate?" but I figured some people would actually think I was being serious...

    I loved the line about his eyebrows wanting to set up their own independent state!

    :lol:

    But what are the odds Scotland will actually vote Yes? From I've heard from some British folks I work with here, it doesn't seem likely.

    ^Latest opinion poll puts the Yes camp 6 points behind No, which is the highest they've ever been, IIRC.

    I don't think there'll be a Yes vote, but the No camp has to win big to put it off the agenda. If it's any way close, there'll probably be increased powers for devolution and the SNP will keep angling for a re-run in the next few years.

    The trouble is that no matter what the polls say there are still a lot of undecided voters, so it may be close.

    I hope Scotland vote No, but whichever way it goes I hope it's decisive, there are no particular Quorums in regard to levels of turnout of margin of victory, which means it could quite easily be 51%/49%
