Do you think Scotland should become an independent country, and how would this affect the rest of the United Kingdom?

Well for now Scotland have voted against being an independent country but that has led to a split within Scotland: those who want independence and those that don't.

Personally, I think there will be another vote soon, and I think this time they will break away from the UK.

The problem is that Scotland would then have to decide on a new currency, because they have been told they can't have the pound. The free prescriptions that they get will probably be a thing of the past because, as an independent nation they won't be able to afford it.

The UK would have to change its flag and with so many Scottish members of parliament, I think the house of commons would be seeing some new faces.

The UK is part of the European Union, so if Scotland leave, our contract with Europe possibly becomes invalid as we would be a broken nation.

I personally have no problem with Scottish people at all and Scotland is a beautiful place. However, if they want to leave, and are no longer happy to be part of the United Kingdom, I wish them all the luck in the world. That said, I think they would struggle.
