Updated 0520hrs UTC: The Scots voted No, on independence. Looks like the British Isles are full of unhappy bitter people right now.
I’m just thinking that the Scots will vote for independence, with a Yes vote. I have a feeling about this. Of course, a big vote like this, which is a single issue, is going to appeal to lower information voters. Personally; it makes no difference to me or to the US, for that matter. No one cares & no, it’s not going to set a precedent for other nations. That’s just an hysterical tangent to veer off on.
Sure, it’s going to be bad for Britain; but really, there needs to be a bit of a shakeup there. Perhaps, they’ll have to rethink their entitlement culture, welfare state & more. After all, they’ll be losing a big chunk of their revenue & they have nukes, a navy & foreign protectorates to maintain.
It is a mystery to me why London is just allowing any of this, in the first place. No country is obliged to allow regions to break off & secede. It would never happen here in the US & Spain is making it clear their little Catalonia issues aren’t on the table, for the foreseeable future.
