Considering the No Campaign has the full weight of the British Establishment and the British Media behind them it must be of great concern that we are not buying their propaganda. The fact they have to censor their own forums and manufacture opinion polls to give the impression they are winning the debate must also be of great concern. They can focus as much attention on the case for independence all they want because sooner or later the attention will turn to the case of the Union and why it is in Scotland’s interest to remain part of it. That focus will turn before the referendum and it is then that the true weakness of the Unionist case will be revealed. In particular the focus will turn to increased powers for Holyrood. Even the No Campaigners accept that the Status Quo is not a viable option. What they have to do is to convince the ‘Undecided’ that more powers are a real prospect whilst at the same time not actually promising anything. They can’t promise anything because they know their masters in London will not honour any promises. The Scottish Unionist will be particularly concerned that Conservatives south of the border do not deliberately sabotage their deceitful efforts to con the Scottish electorate into voting No.
All is not as rosy in the Unionist garden as they would have us believe. They are worried and rightly so because they know that apart from the obvious trickery the tide is turning in favour of a Yes vote. Every time there is a debate and a vote at the end the majority vote Yes. That is because they are able to hear both sides of the argument and realise that one side is far stronger than the other.
