Independent Scotland?

The referendum to decide whether the Scottish nation becomes independent will take place one year from today. It is good that 16 year olds will also be allowed to vote. I think everyone over 16 should be allowed to within the UK.

It is of course up to the Scottish people themselves to decide which way to go. From a South European perspective, which is where I originally come from, I would say that Scotland has always been seen as a separate entity from England and indeed many make the distinction. In other words the rest of Europe already sees Scotland as an entirely different nation. There are benefits to staying within the UK but an independent Scotland will also be able to take its rightful place within a United Europe.
