I am intrigued by what the vote result will be in a few days’ time in Scotland regarding whether to separate from the UK or whether to maintain the union. At first I thought it was unthinkable for Scotland to separate but it seems now as if the race is too close to call.
Here in Canada, most of the news coverage has portrayed the No campaign as being purveyors of doom and gloom for an independent Scotland while portraying the Yes side as recklessly glossing over important economic questions in their haste to convince Scots to separate. I’m interested especially if some of our resident Scots (looking at you Furo and Rattlehead) could chime in with their take on the issues at hand and with their prediction as to what the result of the vote will be.
It would also be interesting to see the opinions of English, Welsh and Northern Irish T-Nation members as to what they think the outcome of Scottish separation would be for their respective parts of the union. I know many people hold very deep feelings regarding such questions so I hope this thread doesn’t result in inflammatory comments or arguments. I’d really just like to see a great discussion of this important world event which doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of talk on here.
