Steve Richards: There may be no divorce, but devolution combined with a rightwing Westminster government is moving our nations in separate directions
COLM CURRIE considers a key aspect of the Better Together rhetoric There are a lot of double standards about independence and the debate surroundin
Steve Richards: Direct democracy is alien to our system. Which is why, as with AV, and now in Scotland, we can't seem to get it off the ground
Catherine Bennett: Even those of us sympathetic to Scotland's right to rule itself are repelled by the chauvinistic yes campaign
Pat Kane: What the no camp doesn't realise is that the real strength of the yes campaign lies in its efforts to revitalise citizenship itself
Shelagh McKinlay: If Glaswegians are aping the intonation of inner-city Londoners, it's because they identify with them. That's something the pro-independence lobby is going to have to address
Fraser MacDonald: Not only do Scots have a rare chance to enact lasting change, the vote has energised other key debates such as land reform
Kevin McKenna: Emotions will run high in the referendum but we won't see armed militia in the Highlands if the cause of independence is lost
Scots are not engaged, as they were in the 1970s, in a debate about how best to utilise North Sea assets.
Iain Macwhirter: Unionist triumphalism is premature – regardless of the referendum, Scotland is heading towards independence anyway
