Is the Glasgow University referendum a blow for the Yes campaign?

Students at Glasgow University have become the first people in Scotland to take part in a referendum on independence.

Around 2,500 people cast their vote on the question 'Should Scotland be an independent country?', with the No side winning by 63% to 37%.

But with just 10% of students participating and an electorate heavily weighted to one age group and educational profile, how much does the poll really tell us about the strength of the two campaigns 18 months before the real vote? Economist Professor John Kay and Radio Clyde's Colin Mackay debate the issues.
