Scotland's Referendum: will Scots eventually secede from their English exploiters? This type of question deserves the contempt it rightly deserves. Any honest Scots person with no axe to grind will admit that the monies received from Westminster Treasury which will cease on Scottish Independence help to keep their finances in a solvent manner. I notice the usual Scottish contributors holding independence views have suddenly gone quiet. Is it a question of having seen the error of their ways? Or is it a question of finally seeing Alex Salmond in his true colours. A political opportunist who was a pathetic figure who lived within the shadows of Robin Cook and Donald Dewar. So may I respectfully ask. Where are Andrew 87 and Mindflux these days? Working their 'socks off' for president elect Alex Salmond? Nice to hear from you Andrew.I know that you must be 'brassed off' with the slow progress of your guru Alex Salmond is making on the independence front. Are you 'booking' your ticket to destinations unknown if Alex loses the referendum as you promised?
When does Scotland vote either to stay in the UK or leave? Gopod question. Alex Salmond, the leader of the SNP which forms the government in Scotland when elected, promised to hold a referendum on Scottish independence in 2010. I`m afraid that politicians are always "economical with the truth" and without doubt we will have to wait and see if he keeps his promise. You also may be aware that another Scot recently went against an election manifesto committment to hold a referendum on the ratification of the European Constitution, the so called Lisbon Treaty.

Is Alex Salmond going to live by his word and end the independence movement when they lose the 2014 referendum? I certainly hope so. The last thing Brits need is another referendum with the same purpose every few years like they have in other countries. I would propose Westminster make it official that one referendum is all we are ever going to get. 300 years of prosperity in the greatest country in the world is all the...
Has Salmond gone bonkers? Or has he been paid to betray Scotland the way Blair betrayed socialism? Wow, you act like Salmond is the only pro-European politician out there. David Cameron isn't going to offer you a better deal, he's also pro-EU. If he didn't veto the new treaty he would have needed to give the British people an EU referendum - which is something he does not want to do. If the British people really wanted to get out of the EU, the simple solution would be for them to vote overwhelmingly for the UKIP - but they probably won't because they don't seem to realize that the Conservatives, Lib Dems, and Labour party are all on the same page when it comes to their EU membership - they recently had the opportunity to vote for an EU referendum, but instead of supporting democracy - they decided to impose a three-line whip instead. That should tell you almost everything you need to know about where they stand on that particular issue. In theory Scotland could vote for their independence, and then put pressure on their government to allow for an EU referendum, especially as they would have to renegotiate their own membership. England, Wales, and Northern Ireland would no doubt welcome the same opportunity. It could be a win-win situation for all those countries, especially if independence from Europe is truly what they want. Norway is often used by the SNP as a good example for Scottish independence, with it's similar sized population, and similar natural resources - and they aren't even in the EU. It would be very difficult for Alex Salmond to refuse an EU referendum, especially as he claims to be all about the right of the people to exercise self-determination. Sure he can argue for his preference, but at the end of the day, it would be very hypocritical of him to support one kind of referendum, and refuse the other.
Should Scotland become independent? Independence is not an option. What Alex Salmond is offering is for Scotland to become a small irrelevant state within the European Union which no sane person would class as independence. The word independence should be dropped from the campaign because it is false advertisement. Salmond has been exposed as a snake oil salesman who works for the EU. If Mr Salmond succeeds he will personally make millions of pounds (reward money at the expense of everyone.

Did the candidacy of Ross Perot swing the 1992 presidential election? Reading the Wikipedia article on the 1992 presidential candidacy of Ross Perot, one would get the impression that it made no difference to the outcome of the election. However, after looking at the numbers myself, I thought it was pretty clear that if Perot had not been in the election, Bush would have probably won Colorado, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Hampshire, Iowa, Georgia and New Jersey. This would have been 105 electoral votes, enough to give Bush a narrow victory. Pennsylvania would have become close, as well. Was there any attempt to carefully poll Perot voters in those states to determine if Bush actually would have won those states, such as New Jersey? For example, to take New Jersey as the pivotal example, Clinton won by 80,000 votes and Perot won 520,000 votes in New Jersey. Therefore, if the Perot voters had split 310 to 210 for Bush in New Jersey, then Bush would have won New Jersey. Has a poll been done to determine this? UPDATE Some commenters seem to have the idea that Perot was mostly supported by Democratic voters. This seems to be some kind of modern revisionism. I well remember the 1992 election and Perot was getting most of his support from conservative voters. Here is a Field poll from 1993 that backs this up for those who are not old enough to remember: As you can see Republican voters dominate Democratic voters in his support base, in some cases by a 2-to-1 ratio. I don't really consider it arguable that Perot candidacy hurt Bush. The question is whether it was enough to have turned the election or not. To answer that question I think we really need poll data from specific states such as New Jersey.

Why did Alex Salmond cancel his public appearance at the vote count during the 2014 Scottish independence referendum? It was not revealed why Alex Salmond cancelled his public appearance during the vote counting. However he was seen by reporters looking very depressed and heading towards the airport, where he boarded his multi-million pound private jet (paid for by the hard-working Scottish people's taxes). At the time he was seen heading to the airport, the no vote was in the lead and his "yes" party were sorely losing. Update When the no vote was victorious, Salmond appeared at Dynamic Earth, a conference centre in Edinburgh. Still, with no explanation for cancelling his appearance.
Did Alex Salmond abandon the Scottish people in the 2014 Scottish independence referendum? At the time of answering this, it appears that he did.

He was spotted by journalists hurriedly boarding his private jet (which was paid for with the taxes of hard-working Scots).

Why did Alex Salmond want to be Scotlands First Minister? I suppose the best answer to this would be to look at the SNP website to see their policies... Essentially though, by being in charge of the Holyrood Parliament, he can now push through his policies and drive Scotland towards independence from the rest of the UK. This remains a controversial issue in Scotland, with strong feelings either side (I personally do not want independence, but others will disagree). He will want to be First Minister for the same reason that anyone enters politics - to change the country he lives in for what he would consider the better.
