If I'm wrong
I humbly apologise Sminkey.
I may have read your post this morning, read the paper at work came home and read your post again and erroniously accused you of plaigerism.
If that is the case then could you please give me a hand removing my size 10 from my mouth.

I think it's a stupid idea. The UK may be like a dysfunctional family, forever criticising and harping on about the other members but we are better and stronger together than we are apart.

I would like to see Scotland independant just so they realise how much they rely on England to survive. They get huge amounts of cash from the HM Treasury, without which, they would not be able to afford to allow no tuition fees, or run their health service or education.
England, on the other hand, would be largely unaffected.
My own personal feelings are that if NI, Scotland and Wales can have their own assemblies, then why cannot England. I think that is where alot of English resentment is stemming from.

Being a layman and certainly no expert on how feasible this is I'd say the only other compromise I would personally feel comfortable with is some kind of system that allows a large amount of autonomy while retaining the benefits of a united kingdom and the strength and stability that affords us.
