@bobgranleese well I knew you wouldn't grumpy.Anyone want an owl? http://t.co/3Lj76ANdQ7@chefcalum and we wouldn't want you any other way.@UK_Together @borjabergareche that's not what it is saying.@danhancox @AdamRamsay ahh I see. This debate was very different and very good.@danhancox was brilliant.@danhancox The debate earlier is the best political debate I have ever seen in my life.My God if Jim Murphy was chocolate he'd eat himself.@DAaronovitch @thetimes @adelegeras totally underestimated grassroots campaign and thought it was party politics.@DAaronovitch @thetimes @adelegeras but it seems it wasn't even being contemplated which I thought was very foolhardy.@DAaronovitch @thetimes @adelegeras astounds me that Westminster has no contingency for this at all. They were completely convinced of NO.@DAaronovitch @thetimes @adelegeras I asked a political journo about this in Dec as I couldn't believe there was nothing. Neither could he.@HumzaYousaf What is your favourite pie? #wellyoudidofferStill got questions after #ScotDecides ? Feel free to Keep Calm and #AskMeAnything (within reason!) http://t.co/E8Q0KW0jd7
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@oliverpeyton careful, you're being seduced so they can re-invade ;-)@RKWinvisibleman @PerroNegroGlas @zoesqwilliams @suzanne_moore which is not the same as certainty that it would be a catastrophe.@RKWinvisibleman @PerroNegroGlas @zoesqwilliams @suzanne_moore while pointing out you are not sure what those imperfections are in UK#ScotDecides 'post debate analysis' Please, Santa, let it better than the usual badged-up -we won-no we won-
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackRight so WHEN can we have a debate like that down here? And when can Ponsby be in charge of #BBCQT and all political debates?!@Shequeen @ScotDecides @STVNews agreed. Utterly stupendous.@philiplarkin made me actually proud to be from the same country as him.Can anyone think of a niche benefit that hardly anybody is on? It's for a thing *extended, incomprehensible simile*
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@suzanne_moore the clue is in the magazine.All six debaters tonight really impressive. Am astounded at their politeness and maturity. Wish we had that down here. #ScotlandDecides@carlescosta_ lo de esta noche es increíble. Impresionante y no se qué más palabras.@carlescosta_ y la primera vez en mi vida que veo un debate político en la telly que vale la pena.@suzanne_moore they/we keep them for now. Until Susan Boyle gets Balmoral.What I like about this Scotland Decides is that women outnumber men at the podium, yet nobody makes this A Big Deal for the little ladies
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@TheForagersKitc @ruth_wishart best political debate I've ever seen on telly in my life.I forgot about that (re last RT)You've got to hand it to Scotland: two LGBT leaders in this round. Awesome #ScotlandDecides

I'm sure she does. I know I do. #ScotlandDecides
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack'Vote Labour, get to the back to the bus and shut up.' What we're supposed to do, according to Elaine C Smith in full feist.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@philiplarkin she's been doing polítical campaigning for ages. And doing it very well it appears@Sathnam this 3rd debate on #indyref is actually very good.Elaine C Smith understands it's about people. The personal is political. #ScotDecides
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@philiplarkin I thought she was very very good.Sharp exchanges, but civilised with it. #scotdecides
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@lukewrightpoet @suzanne_moore @IrvineWelsh @BBCRadio4 oh God this will be painful.@gibbzer it is utterly amazing.@lukewrightpoet @suzanne_moore @IrvineWelsh there'll also be a bottle of malt whisky. But I have to do a radio prog the next morning. Fuck.@suzanne_moore @IrvineWelsh @lukewrightpoet bizarrely I'll be in Wales with 3 English people that night@RKWinvisibleman @R_McCormack @suzanne_moore economy is wrecked, but only for the people at the bottom. Consequences have been horrible
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@RKWinvisibleman @R_McCormack @suzanne_moore I must say, I strongly disagree with this. We've created consequence-free capitalism. The >>
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@RKWinvisibleman @zoesqwilliams @suzanne_moore the unpleasant nationalism is a small minority of yes voters. The Orange Lodge are voting no@IrvineWelsh @suzanne_moore whole of the country is alight. Even South Uist.@RKWinvisibleman @zoesqwilliams @suzanne_moore if that's all they've got then sadly England is the same.Labour woman debating Elaine C Smith is challenging SNP, not independence. Not brilliant.@RKWinvisibleman @zoesqwilliams @suzanne_moore but not impossible and not a catastrophe.@RKWinvisibleman @zoesqwilliams @suzanne_moore and public finances couldn't change?@suzanne_moore this is the best debate I've ever seen on telly.@zoesqwilliams @suzanne_moore @RKWinvisibleman how can you be so sure? Surely the thing is no one actually knows.Couldn't agree with that last RT more. Proper respectful debate on STV. Astonishing.Have to say that this is a far better debate from both speakers than the Darling/Salmond dialogue of the deaf. #ScotlandDecides
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@suzanne_moore if they vote NO there is a ton of people in Scotland now politically engaged. And that genie can't be put back in the bottle@suzanne_moore wish it would infect people down here.@suzanne_moore Whole thing is amazing. Never ever thought it would get this far.@kieran_hurley Nicola is doing BRILLIANT@PeatWorrier 'in an iScotland, all cars will run on melted Tunnocks teacakes and thin stovies' #ScotDecides
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@philip_dundas actually if they'd got Gordon Brown the NO campaign wouldn't have been so dire.@gibbzer try CatchUpTV app That's what I'm using.@philip_dundas actually it's not Kermit and The Eagle from the Muppets, so maybe worth a watch.Tonight's big debate might actually be worth a watch tonight. Neither the big deid frog or yon eagle fae the moppet show are on :)
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@PeatWorrier Horray!!I shall be tweeting tonight's #ScotDecides #indyref debate in the character of a toothless midwestern gold prospector.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@totalcharlie @Shequeen she's very good our Shelagh.@Shequeen oh indeed. But I always think that the Euro thing is just bluster.@Shequeen and certainly not living in London. Mind you I never thought I'd live in London. . .@Shequeen aye but this is a really different uncertainty. I appreciate it's not Syria but I never thought I'd live political uncertainty@commentisfree @GeorgeMonbiot @CoercinABull let's hope our votes aren't like our football team.@Shequeen I am also really stressed about the uncertainty.@philip_dundas are they having ANOTHER debate?@Shequeen I couldn’t agree with you more.@Polly_Graph @Shequeen @TheMichaelMoran of course it is, but it stopped being about him a long time ago.There endeth the tweets you will be glad to know.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackSo, many people will vote Yes in two weeks time with regret that they couldn't have found a route to a new democracy another way.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackIt is impossible to understand the decision Scotland faces and the choices people make without that historical context.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackDevolution was the result of decades long campaigning and relentless pressure. That is why we have arrived here.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackIt's worth remembering that Westminster didn't devolve powers like a tipsy aunt giving away her jewellery.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackApart from anything else, what hope of a federal UK the logical conclusion of further devolution, when there is no popular support for it?
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackMany also now are pessimistic sbout the ability to effect change under the Westminster system.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackMany Scots voters would, at the start of x this process have favoured Devo Max and a federal UK. Sadly they were denied that choice.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackPR andveffective minority government and coalition for example. We have lived through change and more than survived it.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackScotland has had its own parliament for 15 years. Many unattractive Westminster habits remain but our politics has a different character.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackIt's no longer a narrow constitutional question. It is about an appetite for wider democratic reform.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackI know too many people who are voting yes who have never and may never vote for the SNP.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackSome very insightful stuff in that piece. Frankly I no longer think of the Yes movement here as nationalist.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackOn the money RT >@MIkef45: Scottish nationalism isn't about how bad Westminster is; it's about how good Holyrood is http://t.co/YrXOavT1wE"
