Senior trade unionist John Paul McHugh of Community Union says that the legacy he wants this generation of Scots to pass on to the next is that when it came to the crunch we backed co-operation and partnership over division and grievance.

Scottish independence could be a "bit of a nightmare" for the energy industry that could see companies forced to pass on the costs of the extra regulation needed to the consumer, the head of the energy sector's trade body has warned. In an interview with the Huffington Post UK, Energy UK chief executive Angela Knight said that a "single market called Great Britain is actually important" for energy companies due its coherent system of regulation.

+Lee Henderson-Thynne have you not understood what it clearly states in 'Scotland's Future' regarding currency?  Or have you just not bothered to read it & instead decided to make up your own facts?   For the last time iScotland WILL BE KEEPING THE POUND.  As for your latest claim -http://www.businessforscotland.co.uk/revealed-the-accounting-trick-that-hides-scotlands-wealth/

A new expert report has confirmed the being part of the UK better protects the money we have to spend on schools and hospitals in Scotland. The report by the impartial National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) said a separate Scotland would face a debt bill of £23 billion in the first year of separation alone.

Bigger countries implode under the weight of government. Better to be nimble and light on your feet.

Being part of the UK keeps energy bills down and sustains thousands of green jobs in Scotland. That is the conclusion of industry experts who said that consumers would face much higher energy bills if we leave the UK.

Says Vernon Coaker, Shadow Secretary of State for Defence. He also had to apologise "for remarks that misled MPs. Coaker had earlier told MPs that 70 police officers were hurt as a result of a Climate Change protest at Kingsnorth power station. In fact, there were only 12 injuries that were legally reportable with just four of those involving contact with another person. The remaining eight injuries included "wasp sting", an injury while "sitting in a car", and an officer succumbing "to sun and heat". There were 68 injuries in total with the rest being treated by first aiders at the scene. The whole operation had involved more than 1,000 officers." Cite http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vernon_Coaker.
So, you'll forgive me if I take what he says with a pinch of salt (large pinch).

A poll by the bias gutter press Daily Record, have no idea how they ran their poll because like most yes voters I don't read newspapers that repeatedly print what Westminster tells them to.  Says it all when at the time it's all over media that Yes is increasing, they print the opposite!

As part of the UK we can pool and share our energy resources. Scotland has huge renewable energy potential, but this is backed up by investment from across the whole of Britain.

If we leave the UK then that investment would be put at risk, hiking up the energy bills of Scottish families and putting green jobs at risk.

It's a risk we don't have to take. We can have the best of both worlds as part of the UK - a strong Scottish Parliament, with the guarantee of more powers, backed up by the strength, security and stability of being part of the larger UK. Read more here...

Another of Scotland's largest employers today said that we are stronger and better together as part of the UK. A report for engineering firm The Weir Group, which employs 600 people in Scotland and 15,000 worldwide, said that the risks of separation far outweigh the benefits.
