I'm posting this on the 6th of May 2013 at 7am, and in exactly 500 days the polling stations will open their doors to the voters in the most important decision Scotland has faced for centuries.

Although the Yes side is still behind in the opinion polls, I'm very optimistic that we'll achieve a resounding Yes. Firstly, the trend in the opinion polls is definitely showing that voters are moving from No towards Yes, and secondly, the response on the doorsteps is incredibly positive -- so many people really want to vote Yes, but they feel a wee bit frightened and need reassured that it'll be OK. We can provide that reassurance over the next 500 days.
