    No not at all. Of course I wanted them to stay and am glad they have.what I'm saying is I understood that having voted the vote was it.meaning for a good many years there would not be another vote.If your saying that maybe in a couple of years you can vote again then its a sham.if it was proposed I would hope the rest of the UK would have their say and tell Scotland we are leaving them.

    So, how long do you propose the people of Scotland wait to vote again?

    Every 5 years there is a general election and the people are allowed to decide if they want to keep a certain party in power based on their performance. The Westminster politicians promised this and that to the Scottish people. What if they fail to delivery. Perhaps a certain amount of NO voters may change their mind and want to vote YES based on the failure to deliver these promises.

    Even as a yes voter I think this is stupid. The vote has been and now we should all be given time to see how the outcome of that vote works out. I mean what is she planning a vote every couple of years until we get the outcome she wants. Give the 'NO' voters a chance to prove they have made the right decision at least

    's true, Marco ... unless of course - as you've indicated - *Westminster reneges on its deal ... ... in which case, *it would be paving the way towards a mandate for a **further referendum - and **justifiably so!
