    so are Frankfurt & New York. Glasgow needs to up its game.

        That would be interesting...

          It's Edinburgh they are aiming as the financial centre.

          Glasgow is for all the manufacturing jobs.

            Wow. OK if it makes you feel better the UK is on an absolutely stable keel, you won't be paying £7 a pint on your next holiday and nobody is at all concerned about anything.

                    Apart from anything else, Scotland is 1/3 of the UK by area but only 1/13 the population. They could actually grow all their own food and generate all their own energy if they needed to, we sure as heck cannot. Scotland could probably run 100% on green energy if it had to(?)
                    Scottish wind turbines produced enough energy to power country for an entire day

All adding up to even less chance of a YES vote than last time.
                      Looks like you will be able to get that hat-trick of spectacular referendum failures under your belt even sooner than previously imagined scooter.
