No one knows how Scotland will vote. Perhaps "yes" and, then again, perhaps "no". Either way the aftermath of the decision is likely to be far more interesting than the campaign which precedes it.
If you are undecided or find yourself wavering in your decision to vote Yes, pause, step back and take a clear-headed look at what more the Union could possibly offer. One glance at the political, social and economic landscape before you is evidence enough that it is time to take a different course.
But who really knows what the future brings when you are ending a 300-year-old political union We do have one good historical model of what it is like to carve out a nationalist state from within the political union of the UK but it is not one the SNP are keen to cite...
How much exposition do you need in a film? Those clunky scenes when characters discuss plot, stitching Scene A to Scene B? Obviously film is a visual medium, so in theory nobody needs say anything.
I'm more than willing and ready to stand corrected, but I just can't get past the fact that so much of the yes debate has an underlying thread of Anti English Anti establishment running throughout it, and if Scotland does gain independence, how long before the same people who are so anti Westminster are equally disillusioned with their own government at Holyrood?
So if the expectation is that we pick up from where we left it and the answer to the referendum is a flat 'No' then I suspect Yes supporters will be able to do that. But what if the answer is 'Yes?' How will the 'No' people carry on from there?
Many milestones have already been marked on the road to the independence referendum as our nation prepares to make a significant choice - almost certainly the most significant decision many of us will make in a lifetime. As we reach the 100 days to go mark, I see a marked shift in how people are viewing the crucial vote. Travelling around Scotland I have seen a growing appetite for debate and, alongside that, a continuing clamour for more information and facts.
I've been on the road. No surprise there you might think. This time it was slightly different. I was one of about a dozen in a mini-bus jooking around Scotland seeking out roads less travelled and villages and towns I've never previously visited.
Taking the family to Glasgow to see the Commonwealth Games in July? Here's the inside track on three fun things to do with the kids while you're there.
There have been many predictions that both the Conservatives and Labour will move to the right in the next year, out of fear of the impact of Ukip's anti-multiculturalism. I am not sure if this is the necessary and 'politically correct' route to ensure electoral success in 2015.
In the last 17 months a blaming culture and racist attitude has damaged the lives and reputation of thousands of Romanians in the UK. The British public was continuously served with scaremongering about Romanians who, in their vast majority, are hard working people, honest, committed, pay taxes and contribute to the growth of this country.
When you're thinking of a stylish UK city for a weekend away, I can guarantee that Dundee is not one that would pop into your head. Until I spent a weekend there earlier this month, words I would have used to describe this Scottish city is are dreary, run-down and boring.
The latest tourism figures are in and they are a cause for celebration. One of VisitBritain's key objectives is to boost the regional spread of inbound tourism to ensure its economic benefits are felt all over Britain. Last year saw that happen, with every nation across the country welcoming an increase in both visitor numbers and tourist spending.
Where should you go if you want to avoid the mayhem of Rio 2014? What options are open to those who loathe football or just want to keep away from the final score? Here are a few ideas.
My view is that renewing Trident and maintaining a CASD (continuous at sea-deterrence) is not a policy Britain should be preserving. It's obsolete, not only wasting resources but upholding a defence policy that does not address the changes within a post-Cold-War world.
One of the most annoying aspects of the Independence Referendum are the number of political commentators who do not 'get it' or repeat the same-old claims that have been proven to be false.
