That's what the English said about the North American colonies.

Delay: But none of the stuff the Scots now do on their own comes up to the standards of a modern nation.


There are plenty of smaller nations that do just fine.

Second most prosperous economic area in the UK after London. We would be fine.  fark the SNP for not letting prisoners vote.  MSPs are afraid. To do the right thing because they don't want the backlash.  Taking away someone's right to vot. Because they happen to be in jail is terrible social justice.  They are people being rehabilitated, our prisons aren't for punishment.  More authoritarian shiate from the SNP. The quicker we re independent the quicker we can vote out that fat turd Salmond and get on with being a real country

Amusing though it might be for observers, Scotland is not going to vote for independence.

Sorry, folks.

Yep. Plus being part of the EU takes care of a lot of the traditional requirements of being an independent nation so it would be easier than it would have been in the past. I'm wondering what happens to the rest of the UK if Scotland does become independent. Would Northern Ireland really want to stick out or go their own way? While there have been rumblings in Wales about independence, I doubt they'd ever leave but I'm not so sure about Northern Ireland, especially without Scotland around to counterbalance the dominance of England in the UK.

Personally, I kinda hope it happens, as it would influence Wales to do the same and it would become very easy for me to put in for EU citizenship.

TheShavingofOccam123: Scotland can never be free. The people who invented haggis cannot be given free rein. Think of the danger to humankind if they create a next even more savage, more dangerous main course..

Yeah, yeah, the Scottish enlightenment...


That's....racist?

Since I am half Scottish I feel like I should have more of an opinion on this, but most of my family over there hasn't made up their minds about it yet so I'm fine with being on the fence about it.

/not that anyone there gives a rat's ass about my opinion on the matter...

Oh, it looks like Scotland is talking about breaking away from the UK again.

Must be a day that ends in 'y'.
