Meanwhile in The Herald today George Kerovan, part of an SNP group looking at currency options for an independent Scotland says it would require selling off Scotland's public assets to bankroll it. He also said spending cuts or tax rises would be needed. A bit harder to sell than the utopia promised last time.
As for anecdotes I know yes voters from last time who would switch to no as they think a Brexit UK would be better than a Scotland in the EU.
As with Brexit, economic arguments, and what colour the currency is going to be are no longer 'clever' enough arguments to scare the plucky Scots.
What stone the rUK can use to bash them with next time round (and there WILL be a next time) is beyond my ken.
Fool them once...
