I really hope they don't! I just can't think how they would sort it all out, what the consequences would be in terms of just about everything! Mind boggling. We live close to the border and have several friends living in Scotland. It doesn't feel like a different country.....
I have no idea what impact it will have on England financially if Scotland goes independent. I don't know if we will be worse or better off. I do think the value pound will suffer heavily though. I do want Scotland to remain part of the United Kingdom though; I don't want to lose the Union Jack, and I think it will cause a lot of complications with trade, education, jobs, and moving borders. I think we will lose part of our identity and sense of togetherness.

I am now also dubious about what will happen if the vote 'no' as well, since they will receive more powers. That kind of means they will be siphoning off the benefits of being in the UK, but not giving as much back.
Most countries seem to be forming alliances these days so I'm not sure why they want to stand on their own. If they think they have what it takes to make it as an independent nation then good on them.

I was born in England, and understand a lot of things.

Yes.

Scotland needs to be free of her Majesty!
But most Scots who want Independence still want the Queen as their head of state.
How would that work? We have the queen as our head of state in Aus, but we are still part of the monarchy. I thought that once a country leaves the Commonwealth, they no longer have any ties with the British monarchy.

I don't know enough about this to provide a comment of worth, but I can understand why a nation would want to be free of the British monarchy. If the Scotts want to, I think they should go for it. P.S. Yes, the only knowledge I have on the matter I gathered from watching 'Braveheart'.

I don't know enough about it to comment either. There must be a large enough number of Scottish people who want to for the debate to even be on the table.

I don't really know enough to comment either. All I know about the issue I have learned from Braveheart and from Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series - but if Jamie Fraser was willing to fight for independence back in 1745 I think it must be a good thing lol!
I dont think they should as their population is too small -i think the vote is now in and they will not anyway.

Who knows how they would fare financially -perhaps it is a bit like saying should WA secede from the rest of Australia, a question which has been asked also.

I think that's up to the Scots to decide!
I would be very sad :(
by Rice
I think they should if they want to be independent. In some parts of Scotland they even have their own money which can't be spent in England. They seem to be the poor cousins in comparison.
O don't know much about this topic so I can't really give an opinion.
