Default Scottish independence

I see all of this is starting to heat up - 18th September for the vote.

Current main issues - Scotland can't use Sterling and will not be allowed to remain in the EU (they can't even get a credit rating at the moment). Scotland gas and oil industry income staying in Scotland. Using the meridian test Scotland will have 91% of the oil fields in their waters - despite that fact that the oil rigs are owned by English companies.

I say let them go independent - and wait for them to ask to rejoin the union.

In the unlikely event of a yes vote (for independence) I suspect there will be a lot of re-negotiation and compromise, the vote is still six months distant and a lot can happen in that interval, anyway I'll be voting for fat Alex and wee Nicola, they've been awfully good to me with free medical prescriptions and my senior citizen's free bus pass which also gives me a discount on the trains and Glasgow Subway.

But some of my politically-motivated bar room associates are concerned about how the rest of the UK will manage without us......

My thoughts exactly. My concern is there is a lot of ill informed people with an unnatural hatred of the English. I can see these people voting to leave. The intelligent people will know we are better off together then divided.

In end i can see them leaving and it ending badly for all of us.

It's better to have someone on the inside of your tent pissing out than on the outside pissing in.

I hope the politicians start telling us the truth sometime soon then maybe the Scottish people will realise Scottish oil is not really Scottish oil and the income from it WILL NOT keep Scotland afloat

You still hear about the poll tax every second day and that was a LONG time ago people here need to realise that times change and although independence could have worked when times were good it will not at the moment !!

I think it will be a bad idea for scotland to vote for independance, my annual scotland trip will require my passport and currency exchange lol.
Seriosly tho, both countries help each other, with economic security and energy prices etc. I understand some want scotland to be known as its own country, but it already is, im English not british and some off my family are Scottish and not british. We are the United Kingdom, made up of many kingdoms, united by land and equal goals. Wats next, Wales wants independance, cornwall, or northumberland?? The British isles was once a great empire, and now it is an island. One which is tryin to do wat the romans could not, seperate it into seperate kingdoms and build a divide on the United Kingdom.
As you can tell im against the vote for independance. Rant over

Scottish people need to look further back in history and see how the alliance originally came about

Just tell those above the border this is their next Queen. That should stop them voting yes.

I'm sure there has been a lot of inequality between Scotland and London ( and between London and the north of England too), however I thing independence would be bad for us all.

I can foresee business rates, relief and tax battles as Scotland attempts to tempt business north, trouble is, a war benefits no one in the long run, and England would have more resources to hold out longer.
