SCOTLAND: ‘ NO Voters Win and Promises Made for Devolution But Already Being Sold Out Again ‘

#AceNewsServices – SCOTLAND (Edingburgh) – September 19 – Following a long night that brought floods of relief for some and bitter disappointment for others, Scotland awoke with a hangover Friday after voting to reject independence.

Now, the task was to heal the divide – and use the energy the referendum unleashed to hold London politicians to promises of more powers for Scotland.

If only take a look at this ………

And this as well ………………… 

Countless evidences of fraud during the recent Scottish Referendum have come to light, including two counts of votes being moved in bulk into a No pile, Yes votes clearly being seen in no piles and strange occurrences with dual fire alarms and clear cut fraud in Glasgow.

We demand a re-vote be taken of said referendum, where each vote shall be counted by two individuals, one of whom should be an international impartial party without a stake in the vote.

35,000 and counting ………..LinkAS Revote -Screenshot from 2014-09-19 15:22:00

So YES voters need to do this …………………………….. The NO voters have won the First round and the truth will out about how that was achieved, so make it public and spread the word, Scotland is down and not out!

This is the time to be inspired and show Scotland and the people’s strengths – hit the British political institutions where it really hurt’s in the pocket – people have the power!

This referendum brought people together and allowed something to happen – that had not happened for 307 years – yesterday was a first step and you Scot’s rocked the edifice now you need to tear it down brick by brick and stone by stone !!

SCOTLAND: ‘ On this Day 18 September 2014 After 307 Years the People Decide ‘

#AceNewsServices – SCOTLAND – September 18 – On this day the Scottish people decide to become independent of Britain. A simple YES or NO will decide their fate, but deciding to go independent of anything, can have its draw-backs.

SCOTLAND: ‘ Decides YES or NO But Cameron BEGS People Smacks at Desperation ‘

#AceWorldNews – SCOTLAND – September 17 – David Cameron begged the people of Scotland not to leave the United Kingdom as he promised them that he “won’t be here forever”. In a final plea before Thursday’s referendum, the Prime Minister warned Scottish voters in a speech in Aberdeen that separation would be a “painful divorce”.

Mr Cameron was close to tears as he warned voters that Alex Salmond’s separatist movement had “painted a picture” of an independent Scotland that was “too good to be true”. He said the reality would involve stricter borders which could mean people being forced to “pack their passport when they’re going to see friends and loved ones”.

Mr Cameron also attempted to placate Scots who dislike him and his government by reminding them that he would not be Prime Minister forever. “Don’t think, ‘I’m frustrated with politics right now, so I’ll walk out the door and never come back,’ ” Mr Cameron told the audience of Conservative activists. “If you don’t like me, I won’t be here forever. If you don’t like this government, it won’t last forever. But if you leave the UK, – that will be forever.”

The White House on Monday reiterated Barack Obama’s call for Scotland to remain part of a united Britain. The President’s spokesman said Mr Obama wanted the UK to remain “strong, robust, united, and an effective partner”. In London, thousands of people attended a “unity rally” intended to encourage Scots to vote against independence.

SCOTLAND: ‘ Winning the Vote for YES the Independence Debating Way on Social Media’

#AceNewsServices – SCOTLAND – September 16 – In the campaign ahead of the Scottish independence referendum every share, comment and like counts – and according to Facebook, the Yes campaign has the edge.

Vote YES to Scottish Referendum '

The social networking site revealed new figures today detailing more than 10 million interactions surrounding the referendum in a five week period, with the Yes campaign claiming more than 2.05 million interactions to the No campaign’s 1.96 million.

Similarly, while the Yes campaign page on Facebook currently has more than 258,000 likes the No campaign’s has just over 182,000 and in the five week period that Facebook’s study covered (August 1st to September 8th) the former grew by 27 per cent while the latter by only 17 per cent.

Interactions surrounding the two campaigns’ leaders revealed a similar picture, with First Minister Alex Salmond drawing 700,000 likes, shares and mentions in the UK as a whole while Better Together leader Alistair Darling only attracted 250,000

Speaking to Sky News, a senior strategist for the Yes campaign said that Facebook was the most effective campaigning tool available as it offers access to nearly every voter and allows individuals to spread the messages they want to hear.

The independent reported: 

There are no better opinion-formers for someone than the friends and family they like and trust,” the anonymous strategist said, adding “Facebook is more effective than Twitter. You put something on Twitter and you reach people within the political bubble. With Facebook, you tap into a far bigger community.”

Facebook will also be rolling out it’s “I’m a Voter” button ahead of the referendum. This banner – which first made its appearance during the 2010 American midterms – will appear on Scottish news feeds on election day, reminding users to vote, and giving them a chance tell their friends when they have (although users can’t specific which way they voted – leave that to a status update).

‘ YES or NO Everyone in Scotland Has an Opinion Either Sassenach or Scot ‘

#AceWorldNews – SCOTLAND – September 15 – Travellers to Scotland, beware. In buses, pubs and street rallies, people have only one thing on their mind these days: Scottish independence.

yes-or-no-480

They wear bumper stickers with “Yes” or “No thanks”, dye their hair white and blue, sing folk songs and hand out leaflets.

' YES or NO The Scottish People Decide '

‘ YES or NO The Scottish People Decide ‘

Posters are everywhere.

For the yes camp, it is about a nation going its own way, breaking away from a political elite in Westminister.

To “naysayers”, it is a foolish decision instigated by populists, that will ruin two nations for generations to come.

Both camps are virtually equal, with pollsters saying the referendum on Thursday (18 September) can go either way.

The referendum will also have an impact on other independence-minded regions in the EU, such as Catalonia in Spain and Flanders in Belgium.

Scotland will set a precedent for how Brussels deals with territories breaking off from an EU member state.

Aye or nay

Any person over 16 who resides in Scotland, irrespective of their nationality, will be allowed to answer the question: “Should Scotland be an independent country?”

Several foreign students and an English shopkeeper told this website they will not cast their vote, however, because this is a “Scottish matter”.

But David Warren, a 50-year old accountant who is originally from Trinidad and has been living in Edinburgh for over 20 years, said he will vote yes “because I want Scotland to experience what my home country experienced in 1962 when it became independent from the UK”.

SCOTLAND: ‘ Queen of Scotland Joins the Debate Over Saving the Oil, Finance and Pensions for England ‘

#AceWorldNews – SCOTLAND – September 15 – The Queen finally broke her silence on the issue of Scottish independence yesterday, telling a member of the public that she hoped “people will think very carefully about the future” when they headed to the polls later this week.

The monarch’s words – which were interpreted by some as offering encouragement to Unionists without leaving her open to accusations of political meddling – came as the long campaign entered its final week, with tensions high and tempers increasingly frayed.

Her interjection into the debate came as the debate over the economic case for independence continues to rage.

A report published on Monday by a leading think-tank suggests that the Yes campaign has underestimated the financial risks of separation, which it said lay in oil, finance and pensions.

The Centre for Policy Studies predicted that a mixture of falling North Sea oil revenues, the departure of a large proportion of the financial services sector and the rising cost of public sector pensions would leave Scotland with £13.8 billion less in 2015/16 than official estimates suggest.

But a spokesman for Scottish Finance Secretary John Swinney said the report was “stuffed full of basic factual errors” and pointed out that the think-tank had been co-founded by Margaret Thatcher.

“The only part of this report that is accurate is the importance of Scotland’s oil to the strength of the pound – which is exactly why the UK Government will agree to a currency union with Scotland,” he added. “This simply underlines Scotland’s economic strength.”

In Glasgow, thousands of angry Yes supporters waving saltires mounted a protest outside the BBC’s Scottish headquarters, accusing it of being biased in favour of retaining the Union.

Alistair Darling, the leader of the Better Together campaign, said he had been shocked by the aggressive behaviour of some nationalists, which he claimed had been “orchestrated” and “centrally controlled”.

David Cameron will be hoping to avoid a hostile reception when he returns to Scotland today in a last gasp-attempt to persuade Scots to preserve the Union.

SCOTLAND: ‘ Value of Pound in UK Falls in Wake of YES Vote Fears ‘

#AceWorldNews – SCOTLAND – The value of the pound has fallen in the wake of an opinion poll which suggested the pro-UK campaign had lost its lead ahead of the Scottish independence referendum.

YES to Scotland 770503884

Sterling fell by about 1.3% against the US dollar to a ten-month low of $1.61.

Shares in some firms with Scottish links have also fallen.

The SNP has dismissed a promise by the Chancellor to unveil a timetable for further devolution if voters reject independence as a last-minute “bribe”.

George Osborne had said on Sunday that a “plan of action” would be set out in the next few days to give “more powers to Scotland; more tax powers, more spending powers, more powers over the welfare state”.

BBC Scotland’s political correspondent Glenn Campbell has reported that a new body will also be set up to hammer out more powers for Holyrood if there is a “No” vote on 18 September.

It came in the wake of a YouGov poll for the Sunday Times over the weekend which was the first mainstream study to put the pro-independence Yes Scotland campaign narrowly ahead
