If the Yes wins in the referendum many things are going to change in History:
- The United Kingdom can remain as a country but only including England, Wales and North Ireland.
- However, its so famous and traditional British flag, the Union Jack, must be redesigned, to reflect the secession of Scotland, in other worlds all
the blue must be taken away with the white X.

- This disintegration of the UK will affect Europe, since it can create a precedent for the possibility that other European nations also suffer the
same process, in particular Spain which has affronted along almost a century with the Basque Nationalism and also the Catalonian, and possibly also
the Galician one.

France also may affront the same situation since half of the original Basque country is within its borders and also they have a Corsican separatist
movement fighting against. The same can be said of Cyprus, Romania, Moldavia and Serbia, countries that have regions claiming independence since long
time ago. This without mentioning Ukraine, that also is a country in clear risk of disintegration.
A Possible independence of Scotland also can legitimate in some way the secession of Crimea from Ukraine, so without doubt Vladimir Putin today is
going to be with his eyes very well focused in the referendum.
- There is the problem also in the impact this decision is going to take over the sterling pound, which could be weaken in the markets since possibly
an Independent Scotland will need to move out of it.

This is quite important for investors in Forex market, since Sterling Pound is probably the strongest currency in the world, and entire fortunes are
valued on it.
Possibly the easiest solution for an Independent Scotland will be to join Eurozone,
- Finally, there is the possibility that the Church of England lose all its authority over Scotland, a nation that has two extremely important non
Anglican faiths, in first term Roman Catholic, that was the official State creed until the nation lost its independence in XVI century, and in
second place Lutheran.
It is interesting that this referendum arrives precisely when archaeologists in England have uncovered all the details of the brutal assassination of
King Richard III, the last York in the Throne.
Pls read: news.yahoo.com...
This is important since the death of that King was the one that allowed the arrival of the Tudor dynasty to the political power. The British throne
as we know it today is absolutely a Tudor creation, since before them the United Kingdom didn't exist as it is.
The Tudor House that began with Henry VII was the one that built the British Empire, and also the one that created the Church of England as we know it
in our days. King Henry VIII, who married 6 wives along his life, separated the Church of England from The Catholic one because the Pope denied him
the annulation of his marriage with the Queen Catherine of Aragon.
Queen Elizabeth I , her daughter with Anne Boleyn, was who boosted the expansion of Britain toward overseas, sponsoring legions of corsairs and
pirates all along the Caribbean, and also kidnaped the last Scottish Catholic Queen Mary Stuart, forcing the annexation of that country to the UK.
It is also good to recall that either Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were both excommunicated by the Pope, in what many consider was a kind of curse over
them that might explain why the Tudor dynasty didn't survive to them, their blood didn't continue in the throne.
The Brutality of the death of Richard III, multiply wounded in battle until the point of vexation, gives an idea of how legitimate was the dynasty
that practically created the glory of the British rule over the world.
This horrendous discovering is certainly a very bad Omen for Charles as possible future Monarch, since discredit a lot the Throne he is willing so
much to get, in spite of all the hard work of his mother Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to try to dignify the Monarchy as an institution .
Lets see how is going to be the final outcome of this national referendum in Scotland.
