    And that ignorant, offensive, rant sums up exactly why the YES campaign failed  

    Good god. What a load of boarish spiteful bile from bad losers has been posted during the night. I actually dread to think how Scotland would be run if this is representative of how the yes vote behav

    I'm disappointed in the lack of grace shown by some across the net in accepting this No vote. A complete lack of any empathy and understanding as to why fellow Scots didn't vote Yes.   I personally

    I'm not seeing it either - just broken image link.

     

    Anyway, the pics coming from Glasgow today make an even greater mockery of Labour and the MSM attempts to fake crowd gatherings for Jim Murphy.

    The idea that the server is merely overloaded would be a lot more convincing if the actual page that the webcam is linked into failed to load - that looks to me as though the webcam has (possibly, I stress possibly) been deliberately turned off.

    If the webcam is on a different server to the main site it could easily be overloaded and the main page be fine. No conspiracy. As I say it was working a few minutes ago hence my "lots of Saltires comment). Unless people think someone is switching the camera link off and on again. I have quite often had the cam image not load for me at times in the past.

    The page's code certainly suggests that they're run off the same server.

    I cannot access it (the code, from this device) so I will take your word for it. However to insinuate that it has been deliberately been taken off line is far fetched (to be polite)

    As I say it looks like a much nicer day there than here and a decent crowd at the rally.

    Yes you can. Right click (view page source) - it's all there. It's totally possible that it wasn't switched off deliberately, but I don't think it's a server overload.

    If my iPad had a two button mouse that might be possible ;)

    My comments are judged on past experience of server problems leaving an intermittent connection. It comes and goes, not unusual for such a cam IME.

    Yup, could well be right. I guess ultimately the question should really be: "Who cares"? 

     

    Edit: just out of conversational interest, it is possible to view the page source on iPads but it's a bit convoluted in my experience. 5 steps involving saving / copying and pasting as opposed to the nice easy ride of Windows right click.

    It is odd.

     

    Chrome (developer tools - network) is telling me it is unable to load 'camera-unavailable.gif'.

     

    EDIT,

     

    I can get the images that are supposed to be loading from the network tools though.

    Anyway, for comparison, this was Labour's big rally in Glasgow the other day.


    It's not really that odd honestly.

     

    It is odd if the camera is working, loading images, yet lots of browsers can't see it is what I meant.

     

    My browser is trying to load the images, finding them but being instructed to load and show 'camera-unavailable.gif' (for when the cam is down) but not showing that either.

     

    Something is up, at least with coding.

    All I see is flag-wavers, despite protestations from certain quarters.  I wonder what the comments would be if those were St George's flags, Union flags, or whatever.

    I honestly wouldn't be bothered.

    Scotland is not independent, hence the flags are of little to no concern. If it was independent and this was happening on a regular basis, it could be a concern depending on what the flag wavers were shouting about.

     

    I desperately look forward to retiring my saltire (one hanging over the car port).

     

    They'll vanish when Scotland regains statehood. No need for them. Likewise no need for Scottish National Party, Scottish Labour, Scottish Liberal Democrats, Scottish Greens, hell, even the Scottish Sun.*

     

    Bye-bye prefixes! Yey!

     

    Jeez HC, I thought this all would be obvious. It's not that it hasn't happened before so many times globally. Once independence happens, there's a party with fireworks and stuff, then everyone goes home and normal country status takes over. Of course some countries choose to get the flags out once a year to celebrate the day they took control of their own destiny, particularly if that involved quite a fight to achieve.

    *EDIT, oh and Patrick Harvie could even remove that nationalistic (shock, horror!) word from this.

    I'm not hugely sold on those rallies either to be honest, especially since it's essentially a vehicle for Tommy Sheridan in a lot of ways, but each to their own I guess.

    Been out canvassing in Leven with the NE Fife team (about 30-40 of us) and, while not that many were in, our numbers are pretty solid - not much of a Lib Dem vote in that patch, in fact out of over 200 responses we didn't find a single one! One or two still Labour and the usual few % undecided or refused (refused in that area seems more likely to be either won't vote or Labour than LD as it is in the rest of NE Fife) but very strong SNP support all round, even in the more affluent bits. From what I've heard our numbers nationally are pretty much matching the polls, so 'no complacency' and all but it is looking quite encouraging for us at the moment.

    Aye, the George square thing  wasn't actually SNP organised; nothing to do with them although timed to coincide I understand with the actual SNP event on Buchanan Street.

     

    The George square one is 'Hope over fear' and is more the very strong socialists, social liberals, greens, RIC etc. Tommy Sheridan was speaking I believe. Big collection for local foodbanks etc.

     

    HC would have fitted right in as long as he could have resisted the temptation to grab folks flags off them. :)

    Telegraph:

     

    SNP not democratically legitimate.

     

    Neither are Scottish Greens, Plaid Cymru, Mebyon Kernow and all the Northern Irish (only) parties.

     

    Author should obviously have word with Dave about any alliance with the DUP....

     

    https://archive.is/0XEeK

     

    A Labour-SNP pact would be an outrage to democracy
     
    We face the terrifying proposition of a Left-and-further-Left alliance governing without any political legitimacy

    Here's the actual front page. Mind this is like the most popular rag in the rUK.

     

    'Family of nations'. 'A strong Scottish voice in the UK parliament'. 'Scotland leading the UK, not leaving it'. 'Better together'.

    Just the inverse of the rubbish you've had for a long time. Politicians are afraid of change but it's coming because they have neglected the feeling s of people they represent. The daft thing is you want to be part of the EU dominated by Germany where you're going to have even less say. Give ten years of Independence from and England perhaps less and you will want out of the EU as well.

    This is reminding me of the serious dirty tricks when the queen suddenly shoved her oar in over the referendum.

    I thought one (wo)man=one vote... silly me eh? Feart to get up in the morning now in case they suddenly declared Martial Law north of the border.

    It's just typical hype from the gutter which happens before every election; it's just this time it's directed at us because of the potential influence the SNP may have immediately post election.  The gutter just does simple, lowest common denominator politics, always has, and it's really rubbishy in this country because of who owns them.

     

    I'd almost take it as a compliment to see this sort of coverage.
