Let them have their vote, it is highly unlikely the independence side will win.
It is why they are wanting things like 16 year olds to be allowed to vote in it, i.e immature children who will just vote for independence without
understanding the implications.
The whole thing has been stirred up by nasty little BIGOTS like Salmond who is trying to create divisions where this none anymore.
IF they get it they are mistaken if they think the rest of us aren't going to make them take their share of the national debt (RBS HBOS...both
Scottish), they WILL NOT be getting North Sea Oil that the rest of us had to pay to research and extract, they WILL and SHOULD be kicked out of the EU
and forced to reapply. They will be kicked out of our currency. It is laughable if they think they can maintain the Scottish regiments in the
Just how they think they will be able to afford an NHS is baffling..
I am an Ulster-Scot, 1 side of my family only second generation out of Scotland, and yes was always said about how an independent Scotland would be
nice but nothing other than jokingly, when the crunch came it would be VERY different, but then my relatives tended to be educated.
Salmond also got a shock recently (last year) when talking to politicians this side of the Irish Sea, he seemed to be under the illusion that we would
continue to be as friendly and close to Scotland if they won independence as we are now, in fact it will be the exact opposite.
So, if they want to snub the other 60 odd million of us the need to understand we will be more than happy to turn our backs on them and let them sink.
WHY should be treat them any other way?

I am from Belfast, the VAST MAJORITY of us, ALL RELIGIONS want to be British, your friend is obviously one if the little bigots who run around here
causing trouble. But then you admitted to being American, the very country who funded the terrorism in my country, and this makes you proud how?
Perhaps you should get your FACTS straight before talking in future.
Know many victims of these terrorists do you?? Like how the IRA twice attacked my fathers business because he employed people of all religions, this
doesn't fit with IRA agenda, you know the terrorists the country you are SO PROUD of funded.
BTW, Belfast is on the island of Ireland, the country of Ireland is not in the UK (the free from England bit highlights your ignorance)
