As I said, I certainly wouldn't tell anybody how to vote on the Scottish Independence question, but I have been fascinated by the recent developments/rhetoric. A lot of it has been fear fear fear about short term problems which, while real, are solvable. But even a lot of the "let's all hold hands Britain!" rhetoric (mostly from English people) has betrayed the fact that they don't think of it as Scotland leaving Britain so much as they think of it as Scotland leaving England.
