So, Brits - also non-Brits, if you like, though I have no idea how much attention this is getting outside the UK - we're about to maybe have significantly less of a country. I don't get to vote. If I did, I think I'd be inclined toward 'yes'. The SNP's numbers are all rubbish. Barely any expert thinks there's as much oil as they say there is, with the promises they've made they'd have to spend all the money twice (an investment fund and extra social spending are both excellent ideas, but you only get to pick one), and even if it turns out there's twice as much as Alex Salmond wants there to be, it's still a very short-term resource. There was a comment on Twitter: choosing to be independent on the basis of the oil is like buying a house on the basis that there's milk in the fridge. There probably won't be a currency union. Yes, Scotland can absolutely use the pound regardless. Pretending that's the same thing is at best deluded and at worst deceptive. So short-term, the economy will definitely be in a worse state than it would be if the country stayed attached to the UK. But. The country really needs a government that actually cares about it. That isn't just a problem for Scotland, it's a problem for everywhere outside a circle centred on London and stretching to Oxford. Most places won't have the option, but Scotland's big enough that it could make a go of it, albeit likely having a few unpleasant years in the interim. I think getting one would be worth it. So, I'm curious - if you're voting, what way are you voting and why are you doing it? If you did have a vote - and by this I mean the hypothetical you that lives in Scotland, not the 'clearly everyone in the UK should have a vote' crap that's infecting the BBC's HYS pages - same question.
