Karen Koren: Could we try independence for 60mins?

Have your say

THIS is a very exciting week for Scotland as the people decide whether we stay within the United Kingdom or go it alone and become an independent state.

It is potentially quite scary as we look towards a future where this small nation of ours makes its own decisions.

Whatever happens, the main thing is to stay united and not fight amongst ourselves.

The debate has become quite heated over the last few weeks and I know that the eyes of the world will be on us to see how we handle the decision that will be made.

I, for one, will abide by the decision the Scottish people make. No one knows at this time what is right or wrong for the future of Scotland, we will have to try and make whatever happens the best for this very unique country of ours.

Many people will have their say, not least the comedy community and even they can get quite heated.

Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle, above, as expected are part of the Yes campaign and managing to keep it funny and not too personal.

I liked what Chris Forbes said at one of our comedy nights, when he said, “Yes or No, it’s a hard decision to make, whether to switch on your central heating or not,” obviously it’s the delivery of that joke that makes it funny, and yes, I have turned on my central heating, but only for an hour a day.

Shame we couldn’t do that about our decision for the future, just try it out a bit and see if it works. Unfortunately, whatever is decided on Thursday, there will be no turning back.

I want to know what the comedians are going to make of it all, not least Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill who start their run of Still Game on Friday, the day after the referendum.

Will they refer to it or ignore it, around 12,000 of an audience are about to find out. I’m not a gambling person but I bet they do!
