Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@SimonNRicketts with quite a lot of them around at the moment, you’d be right.I see BBC news have found constitutional experts today who say the Brown timescale is unworkable. They must have been on holiday last week.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@R_McCormack looks like it... Always worrying when media and Westminster become impossible to differentiate.

@euanmccolm @standardnews @KennyFarq nothing like the dignity of gloating Euan. Well played.@JonCG with an even smaller Scottish population.@JonCG so basically it’s a total stitch of 5 million people. And we’ll be back here in 15 years.@JonCG has there been an official statement of anything yet?@DanRebellato my God MSM don’t like having it stuck right back to them, do they?My God MSM media doesn’t like haven’t stuck right back to them, do they?Some Westminster politicians may find what Alex Salmond's done confusing. It's called "acting with integrity". Feel free to google it.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackHas Cameron turned round and told Scotland that they’re getting nothing now and it was all a lie yet?Good for him! MT @severincarrell Newspapers not invited to @AlexSalmond resignation press conference: FT; Telegraph, Mail, Express #indyref
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@joshspero no pleasing you, is there?@joshspero so, honour, eh?@KennyFarq don’t hold your breath.Incredible. There were majorities for Yes in every age band from 25 to 54 and also 16-17. We couldn't reach the over 65s. 73% for NO.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackAlex Salmond says when he asked David Cameron about the timetable for more powers, the prime minister said it was a meaningless process.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@WullieTalksPish I am sorryDemocracy. You'd be amazed how much fun it is. You should try it sometime. x
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackI'm a bit sad to start it myself but if you do, I know good people you could talk to who'd help you get going. And I have a yurt.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackGonnae start a Yes movement in England now? And Wales? And N.I? Saying Yes to overhauling our democracy together?
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackI think they won because we didn't have the people in the rest of the UK with us in the conversation until 2 weeks ago... So... guys...
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackThe forces of reaction won.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackIn 2 years ordinary people built the most genuinely progressive movement for change I've ever seen. It was a privilege to be part of it.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackOver 2 years I've learned that for the chance of even modest power people will educate themselves, organise themselves & inform themselves.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackThey call it 'constitutional matters' to make it sound boring. It's not boring. It's about power and how close we can be to it.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackFor a couple of weeks there I felt what it was like when the people have power. I was surprised at how joyous and imaginative they were.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackInternationally,what is remarkable about #referendum is not only its outcome but also its peaceful,democratic process @Beathhigh @jk_rowling
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackCheese on toast wars! @RevRichardColes in fistycuffs w @jayrayner1 but how do you like yours? http://t.co/tNMtljoxTT http://t.co/WUv4492RoB
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@WullieTalksPish you ok?Can’t see that plan going awry at all.So it turns out we need massive constitutional change and the present lot of politicians are the ones to deliver it to us.Huge sigh of relief in Madrid over #CatalansWithScotlandYes. Madrid will stick to hard line. Don't chance it with referendum.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@cookingthebooks @Bonn1eGreer @alittl so you’re assuming the vote of 16% that didn’t vote was support for No?@SouthLondonGirl rich oil money in Aberdeen. Worried about left increasing taxesDear People of Scotland, if you vote NO, I promise to go straight back to America. #indyref
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@bcnsaram @mcalpena todos los políticos intentando construir puentes inmediatamenteOnly major journo I've heard to point out half of #Scotland voted for indy is BBC's @alittl. That's the big deal this morning. Not #England.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@MelissaCole if Yes had own it would have been the party of the year.I'm going to hug the first Scottish person I see today. Even if it's @R_McCormack
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@cornishgrill I’m in Wales. So you’ll have to hug @chefcalum’s Dad.@hwallop I think Brazilian witch doctors are statistically better at forecasting than pundits, MPs and economists. . . .@mattleys @sharonGOONer @DanielNothing oh ffs you’ve just made me cry now, (and it’s very true)@Shequeen you were FAB hen xx@fredhogge indeed@mattleys but the Green Party (for example) has an MP, UKIP doesn’t. No one ever asks the Greens.@mattleys not really, i’m very very relieved, I just don’t want Farage taking the English space. He doesn’t represent the English,@willipmrpip ooh that would be telling . . .@mattleys being given the chance. . .@hwallop tbf no one had a clue what would happen. Pundits have been winging it for months.@noodlesnrice that’s really big for Glasgow, sadly.Nigel Farage is now being cast as the guardian of the English interests Just not of any of the English people I know And I even know Tories@hwallop 75% is an amazing turnout for Glasgow, some places get about 30% at GEs. Sad, but true.Phoned my Mother to tell her the result. “we won with 55%?? Is that all?? That’s not good.”@MartinRowson aww Martin you ALWAYS make me laughDamp calm pervades Edinburgh...many I have spoken to, whether YES or NO, deeply mistrust westminster's will to deliver promised reforms
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackOur reps in #HOC not sitting so can't work on big constitutional change. And media turning to non-MP #NigelFarage . #r4today #infotainment
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack84.4% turnout in the #indyref vote. I wonder what our government would look like if we had that turnout for a general election?
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@helloitselliot feel exactly the same. I wanted them to vote Yes for them. Never been so relieved in my life.@nicksonp true! Do you like the cottage?@DrAnnieGray and UNLEASH THE CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS@DrAnnieGray I don’t think I have ever been so relieved in my life. But I am sad for Scotland.Westminster hasn’t bothered it’s arse to do anything about the English vote in 16 years and the deeply unfair practices.David Cameron didn't thank Gordon Brown.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@Gargarin given that the alternative is Boris . . .@DrAnnieGray but I have been awake since 4@DrAnnieGray wasnae meSo, see you all back here in 15 years?Christ Cameron looks more exhausted than Salmond.“We have a decisive 55% vote for we don’t know what” Sara Smith@jackseale I think Scot Labour might be about to implode.So Westminster hasnae a clue what to do with the English.@mikeysim xxx@jackseale I read that quite a while ago, then stopped paying attention to BBC news.Last month, 'no' had a 20-point lead. The 'yes' side took this to the wire with one of the greatest campaigns fought in recent UK history.
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackAnd so it begins . . . I do hope No voters made their minds up before the Establishment meltdown.Conservative sources suggesting the Burns night timetable for devolution plans might slip "a little" ...
Retweeted by Rachel McCormackWe still have Trade Unions? #bbc1So there you have it. No bombs, no bullets, one egg. Well played Scotland whatever you're stance. #Indyref
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@willipmrpip I was really unsure a couple of weeks ago. And with the Establishment’s embarrassing meltdown. . .@joshspero why do you say that? Even they didn’t think they would possibly win until two weeks ago.@joshspero Scot political pundits were telling me in Jan that 40% Yes was a major victory for Salmond and he could survive with 35%@willipmrpip so we’re still here, but only just.@VilaWeb_EN hace 3 semanas un 40% del sí hubiera sido una victoria tremenda.@loveandgarbage thank God, but by the skin of our teeth.Go one Tories start going on about how Gordon Brown saved the Union. GO ON I DARE YOU@lemnsissay bloody hell.So one constitutional question in Scotland settled (for now), triggering a series of new ones for the rest of the UK. The waves are huge
