Hearing the politicians and not sure of their agenda. But what do the people of UK think?

26/11/2013 at 16:06

It's up to them.

Porridge, sporrans, kilts, haggis and Alex Ferguson they can keep, bring ship building back to Portsmouth and then build the fucking Wall back up.

The wall has never been taken down.

Love you too Nick *mwah*

Why can the English not have a vote for independence too, why is it always the Scots, Irish and Welsh (and Cornish) that want their freedom - why can't we have it too?

We could end up getting it by default.

I think the English should vote to see if we want to keep Scotland or not (and Wales and Cornwall).  If Scotland do gain independence then do the English have to invade them again ?

Would we (England, Wales and NI) have to rename the  United Kingdom / Great Britain ?  Change the flag remove the St Andrew cross from the Union Jack.

I had to contact the British Embassy today, will the Scots be allowed to use it after independence or would they require their own embassy ? Who is going to hold a Scottish passport ? People born in Scotland, people living there.  A Scot could have be born in London, moved back up north (or not), it doesn't matter which side they cheer on during the 6 nations, officially would they be Scottish or English ? What about driving licenses ?

I don't think the English can be proud of their past towards Scotland but independence isn't looking forward.

I don't care if they stay or go, but if they go I won't be buying anything Scottish after that.

We should also keep them out of the EU if they go, so they have to stay out. And expel all Scots from England.

Why? People from other nations live in England and we don't expel them.

If they want to be independent they should go be independent, and not have it both ways.

I'd be surprised if any Scots could remain sober long enough to make it to the polling station.

I was thinking more about the pros and cons for them. Like they wouldn't need any military at all. One woman was on TV saying that by getting more migrants into the country paying taxes the old people in scotland would be better off.

They are planning on an army of 15,000 apparently.

What for? In case Rangers get back in the SPL? 

26/11/2013 at 17:20

If they don't have an army, we could invade once they have independence, take the place over, and make it part of England. They'd look pretty silly then.

The US became independent of Britain and fought a war to do so  -  but we don't tell Americans they can't live in England.

If I was Scotch I would want independance if it meant no Trident, no military and get to keep the oil.

One aspect of Scotland becoming independent that I never hear mentioned is the effect of losing all the Scottish MPs currently in Westminster - 41 are Labour and only 1 Conservative - making a Conservative majority in Westminster a lot more likely (for good or bad).

It's mentioned a fair bit actually. On the BBC news website only yesterday.
