England should also have a vote to become independent of N.Ireland, Scotland and Wales. As those three countries now have some form of self rule via their elected assemblies, England should also be allowed its own parliament to vote on English issues or rules changed in Westminster to prevent MP's from NI, Wales and Scotland from voting on English issues. I know there some Scottish MP's that do follow that pattern but a more formal procedure would be welcome.

Scotland and Wales are foreign countries and we should insist that any of their population seeking residence in England should produce passports and not be allowed to receive any benefits.
Repatriation should not be compulsory but in return they must take English lessons ,wash themselves and not be allowed to wear skirts. they would not be allowed to vote or have any input to English culture.

As the UK Job Market shows signs of improving, Scotland has an increase in numbers.

Alex Salmond is in the firing line and I worry the SNP could (albeit inadvertently) be the ruining Scotland.

So in upcoming Generals; Conservatives will get their majority, albeit a small one imo.

Salmond will go off his but about how they "don't have mandate to govern Scotland" and say it's all because Cammo hates Scotland.

Independence referendum will happen.
It will fail.

Salmond becomes a laughing stock, Labour will regain power in Scotland and the Tories opinion polls will go through the roof as Union-Fever takes over the nation.

What could possibly go wrong?

Scottish Independence

Looks like they could squeek a majority suggesting a referendum on independence could happen within the next 4 years.

Personally if they want to leave the Union I am happy for them to go, and think if I was Scottish I would probably vote for independence.

Obviously their success has a lot to do with the anti LibDem feel around the UK and the disenchantment with New Labour, however they appear on the face of it to have done an ok job up here and should not be seen as a single issue party, as their name may suggest to people.

Who will have rights to the oil if independence occurs?

Cannot see Westminster just handing it all over to an independent Scotland nor do I think they should.

If Scotland gains independence, will Rangers fans stop waving Union flags around?

I have the most imperative aspects of the matter at heart, as you can see.

Disaster for Labour!

If Scotland does decide to seek independance then no more Scottish MP's in Westminster. Labour hold is it 40 of the 60 seats up there with the Tories holding just 1.

An independent Scotland would give us a Tory majority. With the changes to constituency boundaries also likely to affect Labour far more the Scottish people saying yes to Independance would be a hammer blow to Labour and their prospects of power in Westminster!
