Re: What if Scotland got their independence?We voted to remain in 2014 by a considerably greater margin than the Brexit vote and I think we would again. However the NHS was set up as 3 separate bodies 1 for England and Wales, 1 for Scotland and 1 for NI and responsibility for NHS Scotland is already devolved. We also have a higher tax rate than the rest of the Union.
Re: What if Scotland got their independence?The pro independence rally held up here in Aberdeen at the weekend didn't live up to expectations. Organisers trying to put a gloss on the rally said 12,000 attended but police said only 5,000 at most and many of them were bused in from the central belt.
Re: What if Scotland got their independence?Once again..as a distant observer...One of you asked why they want independence and what would they have if they left. Maybe independence itself is the most important thing?..Maybe they are prepared to take the risk on everything else. Maybe they will end up a failed state. Or maybe they just might succeed without the UK. I had a great time in the UK. Mostly I found the English fine (Although after about the 1000th time the convict jokes wore a bit thin but I still laughed politely..it was a small thing) and the Scots too. BUt I have to say with the amount of rubbishing the English dished out to the Scots - and have done seemingly for centuries - it's no wonder they want to go their own way. IT's the same here with New Zealand. Although they split from New South Wales in 1901.
