will they only let the Jocks who LIVE in Scotland vote? I wouldn´t be surprised if most of the jocks who shout for independence are like Sean Connery and other tartan shortbread biscuit tins and do not live in Scotland at all.

The man is great and I am one of those 'tartan shortbread tins' who live here and will never leave also!

My vote to cutting off from 'great' Britain is YES! And I CANNOT wait to put my vote in! The English wont know what has hit them - their beady little eyes are showing it on the news, ALEX SALMOND - WILLIAM WALLACE would be a very proud man :)

Alex Salmond got his butt firmly booted in Stirling when he hired a quango to find 250 thousand pounds worth of savings by trying to close down an old age pensioners home and relocate them far and wide (after selling off their homes to look after their care)
The protesting relatives delivered him a coup de grace and the whole exercise caused the taxpayer to be 350 thousand out of pocket,What a disgrace.
Politicians eh! you've got to hate them for their utter stupidity.
I don't trust any of them any-more, actually I never have trusted them.

there are well over 50,000 of them . The Duchess of Alba is one. They MIGHT let the whole UK vote, then the scots might actually get independence, without any money, as that is what most English would like. NEVER wish for things, you might actually get them!

Every nation is justified in looking for Independence
nation without independence is not equal to other nations in the world
long may Scotland question every man or woman in power to ensure that the politicians work for the voter not the other way round
well done Alex 69

The question is, can Scotland make it alone?
That's should be the only concern really.
It would become a tiny nation like Finland or Norway, but does it have the resources to thrive once independent?

How big is Singapore? HK? Macao? Lichtenstein? It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog. Scotland is known for many things, none of them being weakness, fearfulness, laziness, or any of those english "qualities", all front and no back. Perfidious Avalon. Phht!
