Apparently, threats of unleashing false-flag terror don’t work very well when citizens are fed up with the system they’re living under, and are demanding their independence.

In a last-ditch effort to convince Scottish citizens not to leave the United Kingdom, David Cameron, Ed Miliband, and Nick Clegg just released a joint pledge to Scotland that it will continue to get more money than England if it votes “no”.

The three party leaders from Westminster agreed in their declaration that the Scottish Parliament will be given “sweeping new powers over tax, benefits, and health.”

However, Scotland will keep it’s “Barnett formula”, a funding deal that transfers more cash to Scotland than to England.

These offers risk causing widespread anger in England, since the English could see it as a suggestion that Scotland will continue to get preferential treatment, which just shows Westminster’s desperation.

It came after Mr Cameron issued his final, emotional plea to Scots to reject independence, warning it would lead to a permanent ‘painful divorce’.

In a reference to his own unpopularity, and attempts by Mr Salmond to use ousting the Tory-led government as a rallying cry for independence, Mr Cameron said: ‘Please, don’t mix up the temporary and the permanent.

‘Don’t think: I’m frustrated with politics right now, so I’ll walk out the door and never come back.

‘If you don’t like me – I won’t be here forever. If you don’t like this Government – it won’t last forever. But if you leave the UK – that will be forever,’ he said in a speech in Aberdeen last night.

Here’s what British comedian John Oliver had to say about the upcoming vote:

On Tuesday, Salmond dismissed what he called the “last-minute, desperate offer of nothing” from Cameron, the prime minister’s Liberal Democrat deputy Nick Clegg and opposition Labor leader Ed Miliband.

The trio pledged to give Scots more powers over their own affairs in the event of a No vote. This “is not going to dissuade people in Scotland from the huge opportunity of taking Scotland’s future into Scotland’s hands this Thursday,” Salmond said on BBC radio.

And it’s beginning to look like the vote will be incredibly close, and will be pinning the older Scots against the younger ones. According to Fox News, most of the older people in Scotland would rather vote to stay in the UK simply because it’s easier, whereas the youth of the country are ready for a change and are adamant about securing Scottish independence.

Support for the status quo is strongest among the over-60s, who are worried about the consequences breaking free would have on pensions, health-care and savings; the pro-independence movement is largely being driven by under-40s. Neck-and-neck in the polls, the rival campaigns have called on core supporters to make a last ditch attempt to swing the vote by making the debate a family affair.

The young are being urged to visit parents and grandparents to explain why they should support separation. The No camp has launched a counteroffensive by asking seniors to win young hearts and minds with their wisdom.

“I was so proud of my grandpa when he told me he was voting Yes that I burst into tears,” said Miriam Brett, 23, from Shetland and a campaigner for Generation Yes. “A Yes vote means so much to my generation. We want to let all our grandparents know that their future is secure in our hands, and with a Yes we can build a better future for ourselves and for our children.”

Personally, I find myself being quite proud of the Scottish people for their bravery in fighting non-violently for their independence. I am cautiously optimistic that Scotland will vote “yes” for their freedom, and that the UK doesn’t retaliate against this “divorce” by carrying out false-flag terrorism against their “ex-country”.
