Manic last minute grab for hearts and minds in Scottish vote

As the clock ticks down ahead of the Scottish independence vote both the ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ camps are engaged in manic last minute campaigning.

Many Scots have already made up their minds: “It would be ‘Yes’ because I don’t feel the ‘Better Together’ campaign has given us a strong enough reason to stay together, instead they have chosen scaremonger tactics.”

Not everyone agrees in a referendum, which is really going down to the wire:” ‘No’ for me, because of the cliche, I think we are better together. Welsh, English, Northern Irish and of course Scottish.”

Many are not yet sure which way to vote and it is the undecided who will hand victory to one side or the other: “I don’t know hands up, I really don’t know. I actually think David Cameron makes a lot of sense, but I am not a Tory voter.”

With emotions close to fever pitch in the final hours before polling the air is thick with claim and counterclaim from both camps.

The latest polls suggest the ‘No’ vote will just shade it.
