To be clear I am so relieved with the result today, yet people I know and respect are utterly desolate and devastated. Democracy is noble and uplifting but it also can be very cruel and personal.
I don't care what the vile trolls of both camps think or say but I do think that everyone now needs to move on and do what is best for Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom.
While my preferred option at this moment would be a Federal Britain of democratic regions and nations, I want us all to decide it by "the Scottish way" - that is - openly argue and passionately debate our common future. England and Wales please note!
