So, a topic that most people seem to have an opinion on - Independence. Are you for or against independence? If so, why?

I'm indifferent on the issue, myself. I agree with most of both sides' points too much to actually settle with one opinion.

I don't live in Scotland any more and probably never will, so I kind of feel it's not for me to say. I'm in favour of allowing a referendum whenever a substantial portion of the population seem to want one, though, on general self-determination principles.

I don't think total independence would do us any good, to be honest. But I don't know enough about the issues involved to really say.

I left Scotland permanently in 1998 so I don't feel as though I have to right to say how it should be governed. However, I was mad that I missed the referendum in 1997. I spent the summer in the USA and returned to Edinburgh to learn the whole thing was a done deal!

When I was much younger, I used to joke that Scotland could be a rich country because of the North Sea oil and gas platforms!

No really strong opinion either. There are advantages and disadvantages either way.

I worry about Nationalism because it's sometimes linked to racism, but that's all really.
