Scottish independence referendum: The issues Relationship with the UK
Latest updates Relationship with the UK
James Martin: The UK is broken and Scots are tired of Westminster, not England. We are scarred with foodbanks, inequality, self-serving politicians and yet Scotland is expected to turn down the chance of a better future to sentimentally "not break the UK". We cannot accept a second-best future through fear of change.
Joceyln Seligman: I can't stand the SNP talk of Scotland vs. the Westminster elite. Scotland's Edinburgh politicians are just as elitist and even less competent. Yes means dividing us from our friends, neighbours and cousins, losing our say in the UK and reducing our resources. The UK has made Scotland the great country it is today. I don't want to see Scotland diminished. I'm defiantly voting no.
Klaus Buwert: A lot is made of the fact that a Yes vote will rid us of Westminster politicians and allow Scots to make decisions for Scotland in Scotland. What do Alex and Nicola do every day at Holyrood? And who pays them to do it? And if we loose our ties to Westminster what makes us think that Scottish politicians have a magic wand that will solve the problems that afflict every developed country in the west? Better the devil you know than jumping out of the frying pan into the fire! As David Cameron said, he'll not be Prime Minister for ever and his Government won't be in power for ever. I can wait.
Jane Clark: The anti-English sentiment is disappointing and likely to cause a post-referendum backlash. What will the English have to lose by driving a really harsh bargain with Salmond if Scotland breaks away? Will UK voters let our politicians play nicely with a nation that feels free to insult us at will?
