Scottish referendum: with no exit poll, isn’t there a democratic deficit?

theguardian.com — Anyone who's sat up watching the TV on election night knows there's a pattern to how things go: before the polls close, early in the evening, broadcasters assiduously say as little as possible to avoid breaking election broadcasting rules. Then comes 10pm, and the polls close.

theguardian.com — Good morning and welcome to live coverage of what will be - whatever the result - a day that will change Scotland, and the rest of the United Kingdom, profoundly.

Life in the Pocono mountains with a survivalist killer on the lam

theguardian.com — Pennsylvania's expansive Pocono mountains are a tourist hotspot in the summer and bring skiers and snowboards in the winter, but year-round the mountain range hosts a community of longtime residents used to travelling down miles of dirt roads and densely wooded areas to travel from their isolated homes to more populated areas for school and work.

9 things the indyref campaign has taught us

theguardian.com — Anyone who has canvassed opinion in recent elections will have met people who say they don't vote because it doesn't make a difference. "What's the point? They're all the same." There are many reasons for this - broad economic consensus between the big parties in the New Labour era is one; another is the rise of a professional political class that dresses and sounds the same.
