    Should Scotland be allowed Independence and be on it`s own. Frankly I think Mr.David C. won`t allow his gov. to be responsible for the destruction of the UK OMG how embarrassing is that [QUOTE]

    That bloke says ‘I think the Prime Minister would do well to perhaps listen to the voice of the people and try to conduct this debate with a bit more positivity"

    Scotland would remain part of a United Kingdom even if it became independent, Alex Salmond declared yesterday.
    The SNP leader said the Queen would still be head of state of a politically independent Scotland, meaning it would stay in ‘monarchical union’ with England.

    Funny, because the bit in bold is the one thing Salmond himself refuses to do. The man is dangerous, calculating and just trying to get his own name in the history books.

    No, but really, as someone who is a whole sixteenth Scottish, I think it would be financially absurd for Scotland to be politically indepedent. Anyone who disagrees can't have been paying much attention back in 2008.

    If scotland remains in a monarchial union, then it remains in the Union, regardless of how much freedom it has within the union. The UK is a union of the crowns of England and Scotland, so whilst Scotland remained tied to England through its Queen/King, it would not be independent.

    True but some major bonuses it will have even though 50% independent is the Edinburgh becoming a real capital city, with an independent Parliament and embassies; Glasgow becoming a media centre, with a national broadcasting system; and Aberdeen becoming a real oil and gas capital, housing the most powerful Energy Department in Europe.

    Hence bring $$ and a lot of it.

    I'm all for giving the scots independence, feel it would benefit us both in the long run whilst keeping close relations, but I think the dissolution of the Union would be the only proper way to do it.

    It`s true due to the fact that full Independence does mean the ripping off of the Union

    What Salmond said is that the queen would still be the monarch as we would be a commonwealth nation. :/

    How about we put it to the polls? Or even sort it by who gives a toss of non-UK elections?

    What Salmond means is that they would remain a part of the Commonwealth.

    That said the SNP will maintain monetary Union anyway, so in effect they are only asking for the degree of independence that members of the Eurozone have.
