Wrong attitudes for Scottish referendum

I RECENTLY took the opportunity to ask two young men at Glaswegian call centres which way they were going to vote in the independence referendum.

The first answered: "I can't be bothered with all that nonsense." The second said: "I haven't really got the facts I need to make up my mind. People who don't vote will be counted as Nos, won't they?"

If such understandable attitudes are widespread, what hope is there for a representative outcome to the referendum?
