    Sadly, I've never been to Scotland, because train prices are crazily high to go. I'd like to go, but, its only Wales for me ¬¬:

    I think it's a real shame Scotland wanting to become independant. We've been the United Kingdom for so Long! I think it's sad that all that's going to be gone >.< Just England, Wales and Part of Ireland.

    Love Scotland :D

    Edinburgh is such a nice place, I love the military tattoo there :)

    I am from N.Ireland but I have been studying in Edinburgh for 3 years. Edinburgh is probably the best city ever. I really like being here and most of my friends are from various parts of Scotland, my gran was also scottish so I have good ties to this wonderful little country (which is not as good as Ireland hahaha)

    The SNP are the dominant single party in our Parliament - but they won't succeed in holding a referendum. All the other parties (majority) oppose this. And I believe the Scottish people will vote 70+% in favour of staying in the union - so we won't be splitting from the union.

    If you are part Scottish it partially counts...

    Also it was a Scottish king who created the Union (by becoming King of Scotland and England at the same time) - King James VI and I (6th James of Scotland 1st of England). He succeeded Elizabeth the 1st in 1603 - Union of the parliament occured in 1707

    What I like about Scotland is our Nihilistic drinking culture, the way we embrace mediocrity and all the NEDS! - haha.

    nah there's good things about living here too. Its better than living in a 3rd world country or warzone...

    Scottish thread :crazy: :lol: lol!

    Scotland for Independance!

    I worked at the Royal Highland Show for 4 days and made the very very very stooopid mistake of thinking I can keep up with a Scot while drinking.

    I was offered a Battered Mars Bar for free, but still just couldn't manage to taste it, I still can't get the concept out of my head!

    We ended up locked out of out hotel and had to break into one of the guys Land Rovers and slept in there. Great place, great people.

    Good on Scotland gaining independence, they deserve it. Many died keeping it.
    Why should someones life on the Isle Of Oban be decided by some Southern Shandy drinking gits.

    Independence would suck for scotland (initially). It would destabalize the housing market and the economy. As wll as scaring off big business and preventing new buisiness start ups. All UK businesses (that currently have a HQ in scotland) would shift their headquaters south.
    I think too many Scots have watched braveheart a few too many times (Alex Salmond). The oil reserves would have made us a rich country 20 years ago are nearly depleted. Its a sad fact that all of the revenue generated by North-Sea oil mainly went towards paying for the massive unemployment in the UK during the Thatcher years.

    I'd love Scotland to be a successful independent country - but I'm not willing to undergo the 10 to 20 years of personal financial strain and various other problems in order to achieve this. Its hard enough for my generation with house prices being insanely expensive - and consumer debt being out of control...

    lol what a rant I just had there... Sorry folks... It's true though. :yesnod:
