What is it all about and can they be serious?

I always thought of Britain as an entity made up of various countries, and Scotland as one of them has had is fair share of shaping and forming Britain. It has contributed hugely to Englands history, giving it kings, queens, and democracy to a large degree, scientists, engineers, leaders and politicians. I don't see how there can be any ill will towards England, even if nominally it was a conquering force at first, it certainly hasn't been since!

So whats the beef if any?

Or is it just money, do they want al the oil revenue for themselves and is it enough even if they achieve it?


One result is a Labour govt will never be elected again to London; Scotland is a big labour voter.


Anyone else have any insight on this because I see it as a half baked piece of unjustified lunacy.
