Very much looking forward to the referendum activity today. Voting continues throughout today (7am to 10pm), and the results will be known by 7am tomorrow morning (Friday). I've believed in Scottish independence all my adult life, so for me, it's a very important day today (even though I can't vote, as I don't live in Scotland). I'm not sure I'll get much sleep. Hard to explain the feeling to people who are not from a minority within a larger country - but for me, it's an expression of my right to choose my own national identity rather than any anti-English feeling. I hope the Scottish people make the right choice, and I hope there is no trouble or violence. There is an opportunity to show the world how to conduct a proper and fair referendum - and I hope we don't spoil it.
In only 15 hours or so, the UK might shrink to 67% of its current size.
