couple questions, someone more in tune with UK politics please step in if you can
how will the No politicians deliver on the promises they made for greater powers to Scotland
would Wales be basically left behind, relatively, if those promises to Scotland are met—in other words, are those promises for things that Wales does not get/have/etc.

couple questions, someone more in tune with UK politics please step in if you can

  1. how will the No politicians deliver on the promises they made for greater powers to Scotland
  2. would Wales be basically left behind, relatively, if those promises to Scotland are met—in other words, are those promises for things that Wales does not get/have/etc. 

Do they do recounts on the referendum? Because %0.02 difference between y/n in Inverclyde? Fewer than 100 votes

there’s a lot of interesting and intense stuff happening in the Scottish referendum coverage but probably my favorite part of the coverage is how the BBC has a Yes dude and a No dude on and the one thing they’re coming together on without much dissent is how fuckass UKIP is

what should i be watching besides the BBC right now for the referendum coverage

Americans Don’t Actually Know Who They’re Bombing | YouGov
There is a great deal of confusion as to where, exactly, the US is conducting air and drone strikes, though the public does tend to support ongoing campaigns
On Tuesday this week the Pentagon revealed that it had launched air and drone strikes aimed at killing the head of the Somali Islamist group al-Shabaab, Ahmed Abdi Godane. While it is still unclear whether the operation was successful, it does not mark a major shift in US policy, which has seen the US launch attacks on al-Shabaab in Somalia before. US military action in Somalia is ongoing alongside the the US presence in Afghanistan, the continued drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan and the recent decision to begin bombing ISIS militants in Iraq. 
YouGov’s latest research shows that many Americans are confused about where, exactly, the US is bombing. Most Americans are aware of the ongoing campaign in Iraq, and people tend to be aware of the strikes in Afghanistan. Less than a quarter of the public are aware that the US has recently launched strikes in Somalia, Pakistan or Yemen. 30% also say, incorrectly, that the US has recently conducted bombings in Syria and only 32% of Americans know that the US has not in fact launched air or drone strikes in Syria. 
Most Americans support conducting air or drone strikes in Iraq (60%), Afghanistan (54%) and Syria (51%). They also tend to support the ongoing drone campaigns in Somalia (45%), Pakistan (45%) and Yemen (38%). They would also tend to approve (38%) rather than disapprove (33%) of conducting drone strikes in Iran. 29% of Americans say that they would approve of the US bombing Gaza and Ukraine. 
The most recent use of US force in Iraq saw American firepower used to assist Iraqi, Kurdish and Shia forces in their offensive against ISIS to lift the siege of Amerli, a town populated by minority Turkmen.
