#ScotDecides Blurrt Twitter Worm: Darling Narrowly Wins


  1. 1
    Darlings secretary says:

    Get Duncan Shite to annouce he wants Scotland to go Independent and he to be first minister

  2. 2
    Genghiz the kahn says:

    Salmong lost.

  3. 3
    Darlings secretary says:

    I known he is half Welsh but he does not show much empathy to the english person.

  4. 4
    Darlings secretary says:

    (wrong lead, sorry)

    I known he is half Welsh but he does not show much empathy to the english person.

  5. 5
    Hey noney no says:

    Seems Scotland doesn’t want England to have anything to do with the live debate, the STV so called viewer is still out, YES or NO Scotland, England doesn’t care anymore, the Union is dead, kil led by the politicians, democracy what’s that.

  6. 6
    The British Obama says:

    It would be interesting to see how much each side studied the Clegg/Farage debates earlier this year for preparation. The two events did have some clear similarities.

  7. 7
    Alex Salmonella says:

    If Darling won, I must be really shit.

  8. 8
    Tarquin says:

    Maybe they should have got Gordon Brown to lead the debate with his enormous political statue and towering history of economic success.

  9. 9
    Fishy says:

    What a narcissistic phoney Salmond is. Do people really vote for his make believe politics?

    If Salmond had an army he’d be dangerous.

  10. 10
    W.W. says:

    It would be OK, it would be a Scottish army.


  11. 11
    Ed I really am a piece of shit Miliband says:

    If you are shit then what am I?

  12. 12
    Tarquin says:

    The STV player crashed more rapidly then the Scottish economy post devolution.

  13. 13
    Hey noney no says:

    Liked to have watched the debate to make my own mind up, but the STV viewer doesn’t work in England, does that tell you it’s nothing to do with the English, it does to me.

  14. 14
    W.W. says:

    I think I speak for most English people when I say I couldn’t give a sh1t one way or another.


  15. 15
    Only cretinous cunts vote for Dimmy Dave's anti-English Tories says:

    Fuck. So we get fucked-over indefintely. (Supreme Imbecile spoonface Cameron has already said the parasitic Jockanese scum can set their own tax and bennies with England making up any shortfall).

    Camoron is an anti-English Euromong: what a fucking c*nt he is.

  16. 16
    Hoots McToots says:

    Salmond is tin-pot little tartan Hitler. His SNP nutters would be like the gestapo if he won.

  17. 17

    No I want the smelly socks gone, they can keep their oil but no pound and they can get the fuck out of Westminster. Oh and charge every jock £20 to enter England.

  18. 18
    Tarquin says:

    It should have been broadcast on a national TV channel rather then an obscure local ethnic station.

  19. 19
    Orson Cart says:

    Can’t see darling won it. First no pound, then there could be with conditions, then exactly the same for the EU/Euro. All he did was shout loud. i don’t like Salmond, but at least he came armed with figures, including the fact that Darling was FOR currency union a year ago, of course that was before he headed the no bunch and switched to scare tactics.

  20. 20

    OK I did design the STV player, but it only crashed once.

  21. 21
    Vote Tory, get fucking mong Camoron says:

    I think it’s fucking brilliant. If the Jockanese scum vote for independence (albeit under the control of Brussels), we in England have to help these fucking Jockanese mongs out of any financial black-hole they create for themselves.

    And yet, we’re not allowed to have any say in whether the Jockanese scum are expelled from the UK. But the Jockanese filth are allowed to send their retarded parasitic mong MPs to London.

    Thanks very much, Camoron, you fucking spastic son of a dead spastic/father of a dead spastic. Thanks a bunch. YOU FUCKING SPASTIC C*UNT.

  22. 22
    Gordon is a moron says:

    That Guardian exit poll was written on Sunday.

  23. 23

    Fuck me there were some shite teeth in that audience. They looked more like rejects from a horror movie set in Alabama

  24. 24
    Anonymous says:

    It’s all talk. No way on earth are the Scots going to vote for independence from the UK. They hate the English, but at the same time accept the goodies – subsidised further education, better social care – even their own parliament – all at the expense of the English. Whereas the English will be given no say on the matter whatsoever.

  25. 25

    Simple question to Alex Salmond and the jocks. Just WHO will be underwriting Scottish debt and Scottish borrowing in an independent Scotland, Sean Connery or the English.

  26. 26
    Gordon McBunker says:

    I hate that Darling.

    I ordered him to spend every pound twenty times over and run the national debt up 400%.

    In the end he only spent each tax raised pound ten times over.

    The cowardly little turd. I should have had him piano wired like ed balls said.i could have won he election with just a few more billion pounds of spunked up the curtains money.

    Get six aircraft carriers I told him! Little shit only got two and only for a few measly billion quid. What a poof he was!

  27. 27
    Hey noney no says:

    Wouldn’t be our problem, which is what we want, If Salmond wins the YES vote then all the politicians in the country will be running to get their money out of the banks as the banks are Scottish owned and it would allow the English taxman to get his own back.

  28. 28
    concrete pump says:

    Well put.

  29. 29
    Gordon McBunker says:

    I only crashed the economy once.

  30. 30
    Ed Balls - Shallow Chancer says:

    We only crashed the economy once but what an almighty clusterfuck it was !

  31. 31
    The BBC are a racist biased disgrace says:

    ITV news deserve great for leading their 10 o’clock news with this story. As the Scottish independence vote will decide the very future of the UK. And not the resignation of some biased token Moslem woman from the government who has decided to take sides with moslem terrorists attacking a democratic country.

    Of course the BBC is having a wankfest over Warsi’s petulance.

  32. 32
    Scotch egg has more courage says:

    No one won. The scotch after bleating and being a right pain in the fucking arse for hundreds of years haven’t got the balls to do it,. They will not choose independence because they are all a bunch of lily livered, hide behind mothers skirts yellow bellied Jessie’s .

    Finally when they say no we can remind them over and over again when you were given the chance of what you wanted you all turned into chicken shit.

    Scotch bunch a fucking wet nosed winging Jessie’s is what they are

  33. 33

    I lost to fruitcake Farage.

    How shit am I ?

  34. 34
    Scotch egg has more courage says:

    In other words a bunch of fucking Jessie’s. when it came to it for all their screeching and hollering about fucking Freeeeeeeedom

    They never had the balls

  35. 35
    old lady of thread needle street says:

    Been six years rebuilding it already.
    Like a pyramid of supermarket tins being carefully stacked up again.
    Economy is just about ready for the shopping cart Eds to do a trolley dash and put the cart right through the lot. Just for kicks.

  36. 36

    Cuunteron like all Tories hate the English except as cannon fodder to be used by the chinless public school cuunts.

    JH3285934850923 says:

    Voltaire, Byron, Wilde et al cannot hold a light to you, Sir.

  39. 39

    If they really wanted independence, they’d give the English a vote

  40. 40

    They are both very nice young men but did either of them say when I was going to get my FREE FUCKING OWL !!!

  41. 41
    Oh the fun son says:

    All those tunes they play like Flower of Scotland , Scotland the Brave rewritten to remind the Scots they are still owned by the English, embarrassing to the Scots but to an Englishman a true delight in winding the Scots up.

  42. 42
    Scortish Nort Brettish says:

    We’ll see. I think it will be a lot closer than the polls say now. The campaign has only just started. It will only take one Treasury leak to blow the “you can’t have the pound” liner out of the water.

  43. 43
    Pissed of English taxpayer says:

    But instead of letting them vote no and telling them they have made their choice so live with it… we are going to say ” ahhh diddums! Were you wery wery scared? Poor, have some more cash from England to help you forget the wittle scary wary nightmare of facing some wesposibiwity….”

  47. 47
    RED ED - SON OF BROWN says:

    Check out how brilliantly I forecast how the Tories would ruin everything.

  48. 48
    Oh the fun son says:

    They’re that scared they didn’t allow the English to watch or get involved in the live debate.

  49. 49
    Pissed of English taxpayer says:

    Of course they know they can have the £. We wouldn’t allow a bankrupt nation on our border. An unpoliced, open border.
    If the scots said yes they’d have currency union the next day. Otherwise they would be more bust than the socialist paradises of Argentina or Venezuela.

    But do they have the balls to do it?
    Probably not.

    And the same would probably be true of a UK EU referendum too
    We wouldn’t quite have the courage to break free.

  50. 50
    A light says:

    Maybe because they a dead.

    The English, so he thinks.

    BTW: Notice how many times he tried to get ‘Tory’ into his speech? What a pathetic shallow c.unt he is.

  53. 53
    English STV viewer says:

    All you have to do is lie to your Freesat box and enter a Scottish postcode.

  54. 54
    Oh the fun son says:

    Nah the moment they say NO, they have no more outcomes, so Camoron will forget all his promises and he will the start cutting anything he can from the Scots budgets, like benefits, councils and any thing else, Scots can shout and scream but another referendum could be 50 years away if ever.

  55. 55
    Fishy says:

    Dumb and Dumber

    Salmon, Robinson and whoever the Welsh ball bag is says:

    Isn’t it time the three tinpot Assemblies were scrapped.
    Load of expensive bollcks, the lot of them.

  57. 57

    Campitup Cameron has never reckoned he could fool enough of the people long enough to get a second term. He clearly is expecting to be rusticated after the next vote, so is preparing to have done as much damage to whoever is left before he crawls out of the wreckage and a strategic withdrawal to Europe. We should prepare a double cremation for him and Clegg. We can stick their frazzled bits together, save on fuel. As for the Jocks, they’re going to get devo – max so there is no reason to bribe them to stay.

  58. 58
    Fishy says:

    Salmond is so frit, he is even telling his supporters what to tweet. He sees himself as a latter day Fidel McCastro, he has to be in control of everything.

    He keeps quoting Norway as a roll model for Scotland. Venezuela would be more appropriate.

  59. 59
    The Wild Colonial Boy says:

    It’s been said before, but it should be said again (and again and again): Cameron hates most of the members of his own party.

  60. 60

    Gordon, from Kilkaldy says:

    Shut it, ya bas!

  62. 62

    Alex lost because he couldn’t answer the questions.


  63. 63
    45 Scottish Labour MPs says:

    Phew, that’s our pensions safe!

  64. 64

    The really bad news is that strengthens Miliband’s chances.

    Vote UKIP to prevent that! :-D

  65. 65

    The daft cuunts at Westminster would do it as well.

  66. 66
    Oh the fun son says:

    The STV viewer is back on, but not working for the live debate, democracy at it’s best, the Union is dead, they didn’t want the English involved, the Scots would be better voting YES as we don’t need them and they have proved they don’t need us.

  67. 67

    Salmond will have another vote within 5 years. Just like the EU, you keep voting until you get the vote you want.

  68. 68

    The wee Eck has more front than Jenners.

    But he still lost. The lights are all on but no one’s at home.

    Django says:

    Take a regular look at political, you will see that the polls at the moment are showing Labour will win a working majority next year. The Cons will probably win more actual votes as in GE2005 but fewer seats, thanks to the eccentricity of first past the post. Worth noting that UKIP are currently on course to win no seats at all. So there we have it vote UKIP and get Labour.

  72. 72

    Question to Salmond.

    If you fuck off when will you start paying back the tens of billions the English provided to bail out your fucked up banks?

  73. 73
    Mark Oaten (LibDem) says:

    Hmmmmmmm !

  74. 74
    Bob Fleming says:

    Maybe Sean Connery – he’ll do anything for Scotland except live in the freezing shithole

  75. 75

    Vote UKIP :-D

    Anonymous says:

    You’d bettter have give a sh1t.

    If you don’t your proportion of paying for more austerity will increase. By about 12% more.

    By the way I would prefer the Scottish to stay in the Union because we really don’t need the Tories ruling permenantly in England and Wales. I’ll leave the NI Unionists out of it because they are more Tory than the Tories.

    Prediction: UKIP will get 2 seats max and the incoming Labour Government will sh1t themselves and do as they’re told by the banks.

    In essence Alastair Darling ( the idiot who was in charge of the Treasury at the time of the too big to fail crisis ) is still working for the banks.

    The removal or threat of the Pound is blackmail pure and simple.

    They ( the Bourgoise ) are all in this together.

    Make no mistake about that. They are saying and you are paying.

    Reality. UK currently is subsidised by the imbalance in what Scots pay to the London treasury, and what is reluctantly given back. That is fact. Rest of UK will be the poorer post Yes vote,once Scotland is rid of the Westminster millstone.

    I fear it matters not a jot who won. Salmond, despite being denied a vote on DevoMax will get precisely that in the event of a No vote, such is the ‘appeasement train’ currently in motion and of course if he gets a Yes vote then he has also won.

  84. 84
    Ippikin says:

    It does seem so. Also he came across as a bit of a hectoring bully boy and I’m not sure that went down very well either.
    Must confess, it might be the right time to re-assess our position and solve Tam Dalyell’s conundrum once and for all.

    ideas of spirituality causing culture are a fucking nonsense.
    It is priests attempting control of populace.
    Tell them to fuck off, it is that simple.
    By examining brain is discovered love of humanity.
    self agrandissment is replaced by self improvement
    self aware humans forge friendships across boundaries of countries
    Sharing fears and doubts and exchanging genius
    pooling resources human creates first Starship
    establishes First Contact
    and explains fears and misunderstandings to new friends non – human

  94. 94

    Hands up all those who believe the Fenians in the arse end of Glasgow will meekly accept any ‘ no’ vote ,their little playmates in Dublin and Belfast will be itching for another chance, Salmond and the SNP have deliberately sewn so much bitterness that whatever the outcome of the referendum things can never be the same again.

  95. 95
    Oh the fun son says:

    The Scots are scared sh1tless and still want to hang onto the English coattails, the devo max and all the lies and crap they have been told by the triangle of the LibLabCons will be thrown out of the window when they vote NO, I hope they have deep pockets because these asset strippers in London will now get their own back for having to be nice to the Scots, Cameron should be able to strip the rich Scots councils as he has done the English ones for money, the NO vote will be the last Scottish vote until May 2015 after that will Scotland exist?.

    Who smeared many of the core Conservative membership, and thought it was smart to do so?

    He couldn’t win the last election outright, but the smears continued.

    His metropolitan cronies love scaremongering: “Vote UKIP, and you’ll get Labour.”

    Blaming disaffected Conservatives (real conservatives) won’t wash. How on earth can Cameroons expect those he’s repeatedly smeared to vote for his lot again.

    A Real Conservative, also, I'm a fkin' Libertarian says:

    Cameron is a fool. His false words not only endangered UKIP candidates’ saftey by drooling (but well meaning) fools, they painted a lie. The Conservatives have surrendered to the EU. There’s no debate there, it’s DONE. There is only ONE party that will take us away from the EU, and you know who that is. The Conservatives aren’t ‘Right Wing’ any more. They’re centrist. Fkin’ Blair lookalike’s, aimed at getting the old granny and £20-40k voter into their grasp. They’re Fkin’ liars and deceitful Cnuts. People are waking up now, and the ‘quite frankly the imbecilic chant of “Vote UKIP and get Labour” doesn’t work any more. It’s a good job we’ve weaseled this deception out early and not next year, because you know how the British People really hate being deceived…

    by words are feelings carried concepts like “love of humanity” can be explained in words
    special feelings and communication of forces can be ridiculed in words because of temporary life span of human
    because life span of human is limited it is pointless to consider ideas of immortality because you will just look silly

No reason why that should not continue except that it should not be legal tender in England and vice versa and it is up to the individual whether he chooses to accept them or not. They can keep parity as the Irish gamely did for many years with their pund but eventually they had to devalue because of the imbalances in the respective economies. Currency union does not work as proven by the Euro fiasco – ask any Greek.

    On in four jobs in Scotland is provided by the UK government. Will an independent Scotland be able to afford that? They could if they had their own independent currency which could be devalued or printed at will. No way the Bank of England would allow that.

    Bearing in mind that For animals, the entire universe has been neatly divided into things to (a) mate with, (b) eat, (c) run away from, and (d) rocks., at least I will be dealing in the preferred order. :-)

    Across the border from you, the locals tend to conflate (a) and (b). But I do miss The Paragnostic and hope he is happy.

    On the matter of property, many forget that even if we enjoy our parcel of fee simple, absolute in possession, our modest lifespans mean we are really no more than custodians.

    Rob Roy says:

    If you think Alistair Darling raising his voice and pointing his finger is going to influence voting NO then think again.

    The idea of saying vote NO and get all these nice income tax raising powers is a gimmick straight out of the Westminster Village.

    Care not what the currency in your pocket is called, care what you can buy with that currency.

    If you want to keep the pound come what may, have nuclear weapons stored in Scotland and say thank you Westminster for kindly giving us a new defence contract then vote NO to independence.

    In serious negotiations concerning independence the position is Scotland will first seek to negotiate a currency union with the pound. If negotiations fail then currency unions with the dollar and euro come into play but rest assured it will be Scotland not Westminster in the driving seat.

    You cannot scare the Scots into voting to continue the status quo by offering a few crumbs off the table: that is so English Public School.

    I’ve just been reading up on Alex Salmond and I wonder if the rest of Britain realises how lucky they are that this man became a Scottish Nationalist after failing to get his way with an English girlfriend (Wiki).
    He is a smug, hard left Marxist, he is dishonest to a extreme degree, he is a venomous, slimy dissembler, he is a bully and a thug, he is a political piranha, he is Scottish: this man could have been leader of the Labour Party any time he liked and could well have been PM even now.

    Schrodd Feline

    I agree a Scottish NO will sign CamiSole s and Tory s political death warrant at the May GE that s a given .

    I disagree it makes one schrodd sorry shred of difference whether ukip get any seats or not . These would be garnered from a minority/shrinking market share of a Right pool and the Left will any way take the prize given a) the Labour Scottish MP chokehold and b) the non occurrence of Boundary changes south of the Border vetoed by the villanous and duplicitous LibDems which robs the Right of any chance of even a repeat ConDem result . This because the Left will get an overall fairly small but working majority as the sheeple have short memories and will be inveigled by their manifesto into believing Socialism will improve what they consider to be their deteriorating personal circumstances since the coalition ( read Tories ?) came to power .

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
