Who knew the anti-independence 'Better Together' campaign were so well organised?
What? You are surprised?
I'll tell you a wee story from Thursday morning.
Anxious to ensure Gail made it to the polling station before work, I hastened round the park. A Bright New Dawn for Scotland was not looking likely...
Ferryhill Church Hall was just a short diversion from our usual route.
Dogs were not allowed inside and Gail was looking in vain for a suitable place to leave me.
Before you could say "Barnett formula" a nice lady in a pink jacket decorated with 'No Thanks' stickers appeared out of nowhere. She kindly offered to mind me while Gail voted, assuring her she'd already looked after several other dogs that morning (although it was only 7:30 a.m.)
So Gail went in, and while she was trying to understand the instructions...
…I was enjoying lots of cuddles from the nice lady, who also had a generous supply of yummy treats in her pocket.
Surely, any campaign group that looks after voters' best friends so handsomely is well deserving of its victory?
