That Scottish vote

Because it's almost here, and I can't help airing a few opinions of my own. If this matters to you a lot, read at your own risk. You might not like the way I see it.

I saw! I think most outsiders have this opinion.

I agree with you as well, though I have a lot of understanding for why they want out. I just don't think it's well thought through. Exiting the union seems a bit extreme, when a sincere apology from the English would do a lot to heal the wound(s) the separatists use as fuel.

Hi, Berte! Good to see you here. I hope that means your son is doing well now and you're feeling lots better?

I have sympathy for the Scottish attitude, too. I think it's more than centuries-old grudges. From what I've read, they have several modern-day gripes as well. They're battling over who has rights to the North Sea oil, and there are a few other things about taxes and pensions that I didn't quite get. But I do think that what they stand to lose is several times bigger than what they stand to gain, even if they win all these arguments over oil and finances.
