Don't get jealous, TsVk!, we've got the whisky as well as at least as many sheep as they have in Wales !
More seriously, it is a somewhat divisive issue here and it seems to be one that most people seem to be thinking about to themselves. It's certainly not an issue which comes up in bars and coffee shops very much, at least not in my experience. I know my wife and I have seldom brought up the subject between us, but that's because we are on opposite sides on the matter.
The point GeorgeHenry makes is a valid one. As Scotland normally elects a much higher proportion of Left leaning politicians than England does, it is true that Labour majorities have tended to be due to the Scottish vote in large part, but not entirely. As in all first past the post systems, the vote in 10 or 20 key constituencies tends to determine the outcome of a General Election.
I do have one question for the future. Should the forthcoming referendum result in a 'Yes' vote, what will become of the SNP ? They will, after all, have achieved their essentially sole reason for existence, the one they have been fighting and campaigning for for about 80 years now.
As for the widely discussed matter of a post-independence currency, it has to be the Euro and we have to stay in Europe.
PS Yes, there are more sheep in Australia !
