A yes vote for independence doesn't mean the SNP and Salmond will be in power long term if a successful yes vote.
A general election would be called after a yes result and then people would have a chance to vote for any party they wanted.
I think there would be significant changes to all major political parties in Scotland on the run up to such an election, how they are made up and where they reposition themselves on the political spectrum.
I imagine this will involve the creation of new parties and I believe the break up of the SNP would follow in time. Parties such as Labour and the LibDems will be free from the whip of a larger UK party and new policies they propose would be able to reflect the political leaning of the Scottish electorate.
For me this is a real chance, possibly the last in my lifetime, to change the shape of the future. To move away from the obsession of trying to be a major player in world politics, trying to hold onto any last strips of influence and power. To move away from a culture of evermore greed at the top, where big business and political policy makers go hand in hand.
I see an opportunity to create a system where the focus is on the people who live here, how to better their lives and the places they live in. Not to screw them over time after time. Will it happen? - who knows, but for me it is worth taking the chance.
