    Can we now please have the "Political" no-talk-about statement removed

    Steve, can we please have the heading warning removed from preceding this forums, now that the "event" is decided? Thank you. We'd like to return to a less cluttered heading.

    As it seems that some here still want to hash over this topic I think I shall leave the notice for just a few more days.

    I propose Monday for the removal of the "heading warning". It is reminiscent of the Pharmaceutical ads in that, "It will cure you if it doesn't kill you in the process."

    I would say that some form of warning is good as it helps focus the mind and, as we have been properly warned, nobody can get upset if one of their posts are deleted for violating this rule. Things haven't calmed down just because the votes have been totalled. For example, there were loyalists giving Nazi salutes in Glasgow's George Square last night. This is still very much the issue of the day for many of us.

    Um. Yeah. Let's be careful that this thread about removing the warning doesn't become one of the threads that's removed... in accordance with the warning, thus making the point.

    The residents of Scotland have had their say. There is, surely, nothing useful left for others on this kilt website to say on that particular subject.

    I agree with Jock, but 'useful' is often not the purpose of posts. It's better to have it up there for a good while longer.

    Still very much a live topic IMHO.
    With only a week to go before the vote the Westminster parties people tabled new proposals so the issue changed from being Independence -v- status quo, to Independence -v- a more powerful devolved Scottish parliament within the UK, and this undoubtedly affected the result.
    People in Scotland, whether they voted Yes or No, are united in a wait and see attitude as to whether Westminster can actually deliver. If not, a second referendum on independence will almost certainly be on the cards.
    The irony of last night's violence in Glasgow by neo-nazis is that they have succeeded in uniting both sides of the campaign in strong condemnation of their conduct. Not only did they set fire to our national flag The Saltire but they did so while carrying or wearing the Union Jack, degrading the flag of our beloved Queen Elizabeth, a gross act of disloyalty and treason in direct defiance of Her Majesty's plea earlier in the day for people to unite in a spirit of mutual respect and support.
