Yes I did see it, but that's his opinion which is of course perfectly valid, but I also hear constant talk about the majority of Scottish people not wanting to leave the UK, so while we hear all these opinions, claims, and counter claims, its very hard to see what the future holds.
I certainly think the UK as she currently stands is on a knife edge, and if she breaks, then Scotland & England will be all the poorer for it (specially Scotland) which doesn't have London & the South east as an engine room to drive a fledgling economy forward, but if Scotland votes for independence then so be it. ... and then they have to get back into the EU with the blessing of Spain!
