Its a real hot debate. If you have been keeping track the polls are showing it can swing one way or the other. If Scotland do vote to leave the union then the UK is going to lose like 7 million or so people. I have always seen the welsh, scotish and english culture as one. I mean the royal fam have scottish roots afterall.

 

I am just wondering what others are thinking about this vote.

 

I think it is wrong that scotch people who live in England have no vote about it. I would like to here anyones opinion on this.

My wife is Scottish and her family have been debating this. One of the main reasons many want Scotland to be independent is due to UKs relationship with America and the money they spent on Iraq and Afghanistan with ongoing financial support in Israel.

It will be interesting to see if it goes ahead how it would affect Scotland, whether they would keep the currency or join the euro and whether Wales may follow suit.

Also, you not getting destiny?



Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

Being part British myself, it's strange on why they want right now to become independent.



My true form. You like it?

Well the royal Family is  Saxony-Coburg-Gotha. Windsor is just the name of their mansion.  Which makes them basically German. I want to see you explain the british that they are Germans :)


TBH I would like to see Scotland be independent. Will certainly shake things up a bit about  "this is territory of country X"   "A belongs to B" etc etc.  I mean if politicians ignore the will of a "minority" then that minority should be allowed to be independent etc.



I think Scottish people are gonna make a huge mistake if they decide to vote for independence.

If I lived in a country that still acts like if this was the 17th century where it's ok to be ruled by queens, dukes and princes, I would certainly want to leave.

I wish Sao Paulo (a brazilian state, where I live) could leave Brazil too =/



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

What a strange and ridiculous notion, in this context. If 49.9% of Scots vote for independence and 50.1% vote to stay with the union how would you propose to give that large minority independence? They will be scattered throughout Scotland, so would you round them all up and plonk them into Glasgow and make this an independent enclave, and have all Glaswegians who voted to stay in the Union move somewhere else?
