You obviously have thought this through, what are the deciding factors for you?
What do you think the possible negatives are of independence?
In life and in general I am apolitical. I voted for the first time recently and chose UKIP...mainly because this European superstate is a monster.
The real deciding factor for me is the opportunity for change. When will we have this chance again?
I can see lots of negatives...the first one being Salmonds vision for Scotland.
I can see that if we do gain independence then, rather than help us get on our feet our so called friends will be as difficult as possible.
I have a few English extended family members...and some friends...and only yesterday met some girls from Newcastle. All without exception say better
together. Most of my own relatives sing the same song...better together. I fear for their sanity.
The internet has galvanized a generation...if not into action at least into political dissatisfaction. If independence is gained and an election
follows who knows what will happen.
I have listened to the main parties debating the issues...last night I watched Sturgeon, Alexander and co...discuss the possible economic
outcomes...Scotland could be a very rich country...maybe, but even the worst scenario won't make us any poorer.
We are always better together of course, the problem is that we are tied to these corrupt institutions. I am happy to be British but I don't want to
be governed by the city of London.
We have a chance here, I wish my English friends had the same one.
I just had to add...even the pope is saying better together...
