The blame game has begun, even before we know the result of Thursday's referendum. Even if the Scottish people vote against independence, the way the UK is run is going to change. So politicians of all hues are scrambling to get their excuses in first.
In a historic referendum without precedent, nothing this Thursday will look or feel like any other election. The Yes campaign is planning "Braveheart" marches, with “pied pipers” marching voters to the polls to the skirl of the bagpipes and the waving of Saltires.
The debate over Scottish independence has descended into acrimony as nationalists are accused of waging a “campaign of lies” on the NHS, with the future of the health service set to be the crucial final battleground in the referendum race.
