The Electoral Commission have said that about 90% of all people eligible to vote have registered to vote.

The 52% figure refers to the number of voters intending to vote No

I am not against them having more of a say, I am meaning its all about proportion.

I think I saw that they have approx 5-6m people living in Scotland, and England have approx 58-60m population.
They want their vote to count more than there ratio should allow.

Lets leave Wales & NI out of it for the moment, and use the max figures, so approx 9% is Scotland and 91% is England from those figures. They are wanting there vote to count for more, like 20-25%, that is what I do not understand..

We have 1 Tory MSP in the Scottish Parliament - David Mundell, from the Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale constituency.

IF democracy is used correctly, fairly and just for all, that brilliant turnout from last night's Referendum vote should be a clear signal that 'Scotland has its own voice and should he heard'.

They should be able to vote for what affects themselves, thought thats the whole point having their own parliament (Hollywood)?

Now will be the interesting times as we all know that politicians say one thing, either implement it differently or not at all. Really hope this can be the start of a new form of Politics where voices are not only heard but acted upon.

Wales, N.Ireland this should be exactly the same for them too.

1 Nation, 4 Different Countries BUT one common goal 'Fair & Just Democracy for ALL'
