All those under the Queen's rule would keep the pound would they not?

British culture is to die for

In all honesty, I haven't done thorough research into this. I've spoken to a number of people and heard what they've had to say. With that, I've mixed in my own personal views and experiences (which has undoubtedly been influenced by others) and have come to be more in favour of independence

It's not just as simple as using the same currency. I reckon the best bet if Scotland became independent would be to create a 'mini EU' for Great Britain and call it the 'British Union' or something. And through that, keep the Bank of England as the central bank.

An independent Scotland wouldn't be a crown dependency (like Jersey, Isle of Man etc which aren't technically sovereign nations), but part of the commonwealth (Australia, Canada).

And firmly in favour of independence, the contempt the unionist have for the electorate in Scotland was summed up by Johann Lamont the leader of the Labour party in Scotland when she stated "We (Scottish people) are not genetically programmed to make political decisions". linky

Lol this gave me a chuckle all the points I agree with pretty much especially the 'adding a s to the end of supermarket names'. I always say Lidls instead of Lidl and Aldi's instead of Aldi
