Well looking to end a political union which has lasted hundreds of years over a resurgence of nationalist sentiment is a pretty extreme thing to do. That being said Nick Clegg is a fool and SNP voters are for the most part NOT extremists.edit on 9-1-2012 by lifeissacred because: (no reason given)

Shame on you Scotland. Just trying to cosy up with Europe, I suppose.

Europe want Scotland to be "independent" so that Europe will then control Scotland. Only reason any of this is happening.

you blamed scotland for N.S,i just corrected your warped 'version' of history. as far as i know,scotland has never over took another country,they got the orkneys as a debt for lack of dowrey from the danes. the norse and celts came to scotland and mixed with the picts. any more 'history' you would like to share?

After some internecine friction, the Scots and Picts united under Kenneth MacAlpin - first King of Scotland.

I completely agree they are getting desperate, cant wait for an independent Scotland, we dont need Westminster or the City of London any moreedit on 9-1-2012 by trustnothing because: (no reason given)
As an Englishman i will be glad when Scotland becomes independent. The English can then stop subsidising Scotland. Then you can see how much Scotland needs Westminster:-
Was waiting for this type of ignorant post...and as expected its from an Englishman...
You clearly have no idea...if Scotland becomes independent, which we will (thank the lord), we will be entitled to around 90% of the oil fields in the North Sea, let alone the Atlantic fields. With Scotland being the leading country for renewable energy in Tidal and wave, we will also capture that business. We will be allowed to dictate our own corporation taxes too.
So along with England losing a hell of a lot of oil, they will also lose a lot of companies who will relocate, lose the renewable energy sector and that brilliant idea of £2,000,000,000 per year increase in North Sea Oil tax introduced by Mr Osbourne.
You guys down there think that we are subsidised by you lot but what you fail to see is that without the business generated through oil and energy, you lot have NOTHING...
England will feel the pinch far worse than Scotland will, trust me...
