A year to the day Scotland went to the polls to vote on whether to stay in on leave the United Kingdom. It was an extraordinary campaign. Selfies, celebrities, the passionate Highlander, more selfies, the "effing Tories", that poll, The Vow and Labour MPs being heckled by Darth Vader's Imperial March being blasted from a rickshaw. Colourful isn't the word. Alex Salmond bowed out by saying the "dream" was not dead. Today, the battle for independence/to save the union goes on.
