You guys will run out of money so fast Good luck setting up a new infrastructure and army. All you want is the UK to help you but not tax you. Even if the oil remains you're still poorer and if it goes you are gonna get raped.

It would have maybe worked 30-40 years ago, but since then BP has taken most of the oil. Scotland could have teamed up with Norway and Pharoe Islands and becomes a SUPERUNION.

They could have called themselves MegaScotland...or UltraScotland.

But on a serious note, I don't see any hard evidence for why it should happen. I've never actually heard Alex Salmon mention anything that has made any sense. What currency would be used? Why would Scotland be better off? Surely there are complications to it and I don't hear you mentioning them. Watch Scotland use the euro and beg for a bailout within 6 months.

Do you know how hard it is to spell Massachusetts if you've never been there or had anything to do with it? Why couldn't you have picked Vermont or something?

You could use a currency linked to the British Pound like Ireland did.

I forgot that having your own problems to deal with means you can't care about others' problems as well. My bad.

All I'm saying is that the Greek media probably isn't reporting Scotland very much, when there are riots on a fairly regular basis and the country's economy is in an incredibly fragile state. People living in Greece probably won't have had much chance to hear about Scotland.

I'm Scottish but I have no idea what the whole politcal situation is all about. Judging from Facebook though, most people just seem to not like the English.

You're using an extreme example.

I am. But if a greek person was browsing the Pit and happened on this thread and didn't know that Scotland was planning to leave and didn't care either, the poor fellow wouldn't have a poll option.

FWIW, the public sector also spends more per capita in London and in Northern Ireland than it does in Scotland.
