It had all been organised in 4 days and there must have been about 10,000 people. A very nice friendly atmosphere with people of all ages and from all political parties - apart from the SNP of course! Dan Snow was very good as was Bob Geldof. And Al Murray was also fine - he was clear that he was not in character. Eddie Izard was a bit full of Eddie Izard.
I do hope and believe that it will have made a difference. I was interviewed by Columbian TV station and said that I very much hope the Scots vote to stay because this has been a very successful political union and I'm very worried that my friends in Scotland will face a bleak future if they go it alone.
I think on the whole it will be a narrow No vote (the current odds are 1/4 No and 11/4 Yes) and I've been told by the CEOs of 2 Scottish businesses that:
- They poll with their hearts but they'll vote with their heads and
- The women will decide.
If it is a NO then when the next Referendum happens in about 15 years time we need much better rules. Such a decisions should never be taken by a 50.1% vote.
