A referendum on whether Scotland should be an independent country will take place on Thursday 18 September 2014 We have discussed this before but are getting closer to the date now. BBC section on Scotland's future A couple of touch points so far (from an outsiders point of view) have been on what currency an independent Scotland would use: Scottish independence: Currency union too risky And Scotland's position in the EU: Scottish independence: Barroso says joining EU would be 'difficult' So what say you CFC-OT? If the Scots vote to leave the UK I would support them. A currency can be created if needed. Membership of the EU would come eventually.
