Scotland's Vote Independence or Union?

We have plenty of Scots who take part in this forum. I wonder how they intend to vote.

Will Scottish people in England, Northern Ireland or Wales etc., have a vote and if so how do you intend to vote? Will it depend on the address at the time of voting? As I have said before I have lots of Scottish friends but they all live on the south coast of England. (They show a tendency to get away from Scotland as far as possible).

Macscouse had better keep out of this or the LHO will hit him below the sporran.

Seriously though. Will English people living in Scotland on a permanent basis be entitled to vote?

What about all the Scottish people living abroad in such diverse places as Canada and South Africa?

Will there be a chance to change their minds afterwards, if they decide they preferred it as it was?

They're following the well-trodden Lib Dem path of pragmatism, or what the rest of us call compromising your principles!

fourm member ... once again you speak in ' Riddles '; Only the Scottish Nation can legally oppose independence for Scotland in 2014.

It's up to Mr. Cameron & Co [including Darling], to convince the Scots to follow the well-trodden path of Union.

"Only the Scottish Nation can legally oppose independence "

Are you saying I'm acting illegally if I say I'm against, i.e I oppose, independence?

I will not be voting for independance. I work as a nurse in the health service. I dont think that Scotland being independant will cope. We will end up like Ireland in a lot of debt. Scotland cant manage on its own. I will be voting to keep us part of Britain.

What makes me smile is that nearly every body wants a united World i.e United Nations setup for that purpose, formally it was the League of Nations that Fell apart at the start of the second world war, though the above thread shows the world is becoming more and more fragmented. So how does that come about. Don't people know that we cannot stand alone, that all are dependent on one another, more so now in the world we live in

You have to sort of work it out stay and try and survive under this government or go for it and maybe have a far better future.

It can't be that bad if you have 45.000 English men and women moving up there every year.

Actually at that rate after a while they may start calling it little England.

Well as we have the whole of Europe to back us up now we should be ok.Not unless we start fighting with some of them of course.

Could we defend ourself nowadays with all the cuts to the armed forces Navy and Air Force.

What would happen if we had another Falklands war or something like that would we be able to defend it again.
