What, if any, are the differences and similarities between the Scottish Independence Referendum and the Irish War of Independence which resulted in the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1921 (and its Irish Free State and Irish Civil War of 1922-1923)? Sorry to sound like a school-test question. But, I doubt se...

The difference in the approach of the 2 sides is that while the No campaign were holding a question & answer event to give the public much-needed information,the Yes campaign were holding a pop concert. The Yes supporting Scottish government have granted 16 & 17 year olds the right to vote f...

There are a few different factors involved.The oil is in Scottish waters off the east coast and the city of Aberdeen is known as 'the oil capital of Europe' however it's not only Scottish companies involved in the operations,the big players are mainly British,Dutch and indeed American. If it's a Yes...

Independence would have Canadian, Australian, New Zealand etc, businesses and investors, positively discriminating in Scotland's favor due to large populations identifying as Scottish. Not to mention all the business opportunities that would open up if, for example, all the banks leave that opens t...

The key is 'as we know it' because the UK is older than modern Germany,Italy and several European countries as we know them today, discounting ancient kingdoms,duchies and colonial empires that existed before countries evolved into their modern forms. Scotland isn't the only part of the UK suffering...

Funny how nobody seems to mention that the Celtic people of Scotland are the native aboriginals that had their land stolen by the English as happening in Australia, North America, and many other places. For me it's a native title issue as my ancestors were hunted like animals by the English on our ...

In some ways I'm dreading the complications that would undoubtedly arise if it's a 'Yes' vote,but at the same time it's fascinating to be in the middle of the process and witness all the twists and turns. As well as all the economic,emotional and practical considerations I'm sure there are also unde...

You may be able to travel freely on the continent if you are an EU citizen,but the UK has stricter regulations and you do still need a passport or national ID card to enter.

Although the borders are open to EU citizens,you can't travel legally to or from the UK without a passport. As it's doubtul that Scotland would get re-entry to the EU for several years,if at all,there would be a period where people could quite easily travel from outside the EU to inside it and vice-...

I am not opposed to the vote at all, I just think it is interesting that I have not heard of such an example where not all parts of union get to vote on it resulting in succession. It's a fair point and I agree about the fiscal union side of it and whether it's really 'independence'.I don't think A...
