Project Indy Fear

If your 'umble scribe's FB page is anything to go by, the Yes campaign may be beginning to get desperate in finding something that could a 'game changer' in the great (yawn) referendum debate.
Yes, negative campaigning! Who'd have thunk it? Stooping to such depths.
I've a pal (true) who has posted a front page on the Sun from down south about the crisis in the NHS with the comment : This is England's NHS today. If we vote No it will be Scotland's NHS tomorrow.
Hmmm. No mongering of scaredom there. Nooo! It's a fact! Incontrovertible (aye!) fact!
And another titled, 'Thinking of Voting No?' (yes, actually, I am) which puffs itself up to full importance and gravely intones how, 'you have to be comfortable with the marginalisation and victimisation of the poor'  (you bastards!) 'your vote at Westminster will make no difference to the outcome' (work out that logic) 'when the full calamity of your decision is revealed to you' (Jesus, this is the book of Revelations, right?). Desperate, hysterical stuff.
And another (yes another deluded FB 'friend') who has posted a link to Priti Patel's speech about the Barnet formula and added the apocryphal words, 'There you go..' 

All very understandable of course. Yes is still stuck pretty much where it was when the campaign began. It's going to get more desperate yet...
