What would the consequences be if Scotland became independent country? What would be the aftermath of a "no"?

Let's have a discussion.

For the ones not familiar with the story, here's a great guide by the guardian:

If I were to speculate on the consequences of a YES vote:

1-3 years: Scotland has a bit of a hard time convincing corporations to stay in the country, economy falters a little, tourism increases to balance it out.

3-10 years: Scotland returns its investments on North Sea Oil and natural gas reserves, begins to make huge profits.

10-50 years: Scotland slowly buys the rest of Britain, county by county.

50+ years: Och, that's nae bad laddie!!

 Grin

Guess I'll make that my sig, all the cool kids have one...

"Scotland the brave"

Well we'll find out in a few hours if this is true or not.
Have they bricked themselves in the polling stations and voted "no"?

I'd be amazed if they voted yes to be honest, I think the people in these so called Democratic countries have a definite lack of balls when it comes to standing up to their political masters, but the thing is though, some of the arrogant stuff I've heard from the politicians trying to push the no vote makes me wonder if people won't vote yes now just to spite them, the reason I think this is because of how high the voter turnout is looking.

I'm actually excited about the results which is unusual LOL Cheesy

Edit: Watching the BBC now and I'm laughing my head off, they're desperately trying to convince people to vote no.

I'll be surprised if they vote independence, but judging by rapid changes in last month, everything is possible I suppose.

Correction, 55.42% of Scotland decided against separation, I always find it interesting how people like honeypot think that just because they won by a slight victory means they can ignore such a large chunk of the population. I should have just waited for the results to come in on their live page which was updated throughout the counting, but unfortunately I didn't find it until the end, I found the BBC coverage of the whole thing really snide and arrogant, kind of like honeypot! Cheesy

Don't know if anyone outside the UK can view this by the way, just thought I'd mention.

Just like a liberals and democrats after our 2012 election, when even they were shaking in their boots during run up and initial count because they are so spineless Smiley

Btw, have we talked? I don't remember every fool who posts after me. That must be some soft spot I stabbed Smiley

Looks like you were right, I think this is exactly what happened, I hope this doesn't happen if we have the EU referendum as well.

You're argument doesn't make any sense, cryptocurrencies are dictated by mathematics and logic, not people or governments.

Thank you for proving my point. I really do feel you need to wake the hell up if that's what you actually think.
