Subject: RE: BS: scottish independence
Interesting interviews, that may be related to the OP:

Interestingly, the Canadian Prime Minister during the Quebec independence vote says he was consulted on his experience prior to the Scottish vote.

The former Priemier of Quebec, (following the Quebec vote to remain in Canada) also provides his post vote experience. He predicts another Scottish vote within 10 years. He indicates that after the Quebec vote, the separatists refered to those who saw things differently as scared of tge consequences or did not understanding the vote itself. There was also attempts to the say that the other side used dirty tricks to scare the voters into remaining in the union. Oddly, he says those wishing to remain now say "fuck off, separatists, we undederstood what we voted for, we are nit stupid, were not scared of any threats- and, we want to remain in the union and merely see things differently than the separatists do".
