    Default Date set for Scottish independence referendum set

    Scottish referendum date announced - World News | Latest International News Headlines | The Irish Times - Thu, Mar 21, 2013

    I think this is a good thing. The Scots will get the right to decide if they want to remain in the UK or if they want to go their own way. I wonder if we should have a referendum up north. It may go a long way to settling the issue once and for all. Let the people who live there have their say one and for all.

    Can't wait for this. I'll go drinking for a week when there is a 70% "No" vote, dealing a pretty calamitous crushing blow to the SNP and their oily slug of a leader.

    For the love of Jesus could you not have included the date in the title or the op?

    Eugh. 18 months to wait for a giant anti-climax 'no' vote. How dull.

    You might edit the OP to put in the date of September the 18th 2014.

    Any Scot I've talked to is dead against it.

    If the Tories thought this through properly they should push for a yes vote on this, they would get rid of a massive burden on the exchequer that the Scottish welfare state has become and also have a fair chance of keeping Labour out of power for the next 20 years.
