    Default Scottish independence, for or against?

    Should the Scotts go independent? Would we miss them? Any Scotts here? Living close to the Scottish Border I would be suprised if they went independent and most people from Scotland I speak to are dead against it. Would love to hear any opinions.

    Do the English want independence?
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

    If it will stop the artfullodger from posting with that fake Scots spelling then I'm all for it.
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

    It's surely a matter for the Scots, not for the English. Most of the regulars on LLZ are not Scots.
    How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive? Homer Simpson

    I cannot vote as I live in the South East Of the Empire,so I am in good company with Sean Connery.

    Up to them really, as long as they don't take back Greggs. Or 20 year old Scotch.

    If you mean Billy Connolly, I must disagree. He's a legend!

    Perhaps they could keep nasty fast food instead. The sort on offer in roadside restaurants near Perth and Peebles.

    I'm not sure if it's what you meant Artful, but you raise an interesting question. Would it be possible for England to leave the UK?

    Just as possible as it is for any other constituent country to leave. In a sense all countries are equal. They just have the oddity that they are subject to the same government. It seems to many Scots, Welsh and Irish though that they are ruled by the English because the UK capital is in England and because the English are in the majority. They do sort of have a point.

    A referendum is needed in Scotland to clear the air. The time is long overdue to let the Scots decide their future.

    Not to mention the military conquests and annexions...
