there will be no referendum for at least another 10 years, if ever, regardless of Scots getting more powers or not.

The whole reason Scotland was given devolution in the first place was to stop Scottish Nationalism however, it only serve to make it worse. I cannot see there being much more powers given to Scotland, if any, in the near future. There will definitely not be another referendum for a while though.

I describe how political process works, legally, just like this one happened.
And you go on national pride and no knowledge at all how things work.
And I'm innocent one.
Yeah.

For referendum to be legal, there has to be a grace period between, which is at least 5 years. Then Scots and Westminster have to agree on wording of it.
Then there is a campaign period, which was nearly three years this time.
So at very quickest I'd say 8 years. More like 10 or more.

That's true, but the counting process is under heavy fire from parties (including me) who claim foul play or just incompetence, also the russians are deeming it a sham, claiming it does not meet national standards (bless those russians). So hopefully we will get a recount which will be done properly and then we won't need another referendum.
#200 - angelusprimus (09/20/2014) [-]
First, Russians calling some elections a sham while Putin wins 120% of the vote in some voting districts is a joke.
Second, I really don't think there was fraud. It was combination of uncertainty, tradition and promises.
Truth is most people hate change. Even change for the better. It can be overruled by self interest and emotional rally calls, but in general, most people want the next day to be same as today with maybe a little more money.
Cameron and his toadies were given a chance now to make good on their promises to give Scotland more freedom inside the union. And if they don't deliver, Scotland will leave sooner or later.
If Westminster wants to preserve the union they need to move toward full federalization of UK. If they balk at it, union is over, its only matter of time.
#204 - shadeymuffin (09/20/2014) [-]
No it's the very fact that Russian is heavily criticized for their own elections which is making their claims such an embarrassment. And if you review the case they make nothing but valid points, it did not meet the national requirements for a referendum count. And I personally do believe there was foul play at work but I respect how you may think otherwise, however it's clear as day that the referendum counting was handled very poorly, there is no way to justify such an important decision being counted by a group of middle aged - old aged people at 3 am, especially not in this day and age, this becomes apparent when you look at some of the potential cases of fraud and you try to justify them by the person being tired. What I mean by that is if we take one of the videos of people shuffling votes, we could argue that it isn't necessarily fraud, but in fact a human mistake. Of which there was apparently a lot of.

Also as I posted somewhere else recently the Westminster backbenchers are ALL voting against the promised powers for Scotland, and some in Westminster are suggesting that all future referendums for Scottish independence be made illegal. Something which in itself could potentially be democratically illegal and a possible violation of human rights.

It looks small as a percentage

But 400,000 - 500,000 people out of 4 million is quite a lot.
