Good luck tomorrow, Scotland, and remember -- vote early and vote often, och aye!

I don't know why we have borders at all.

I'm so curious how this vote is going to go. Hopefully it's the best decision for the Scottish people. I didn't see that the Simpsons took this on, really funny.

Hahaha! I loved this. Hilarious. I'm so curious to see how this will go.

I'm curious to see how it goes as well.

My favorite of his quotes was "They get along as well as Englishmen and Scots, or Irishmen and Scots, or Scots and Scots."

I have been following this in the news. The road to independence can be a rough one. Will be interesting to see how it turns out.....

Will be very curious indeed. They have been part of Britain since the 1700's I believe, it will be historical, that's for sure.

as Willy says AY OR DIE! Hope you noticed the butterflies at my place :)

I don't want us to separate, it would be like breaking up the family. Although I am not a Scot, I love Scotland and my eldest son was born there and my youngest granddaughter was too. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the vote will be NO.

I am very interested to see the outcome of this election, I have a thing for the Scots.

Leeanna said...

It's a Catch 22 but I hope Scotland gets independence. They deserve it after 307 years of British rule.

This household is divided on Scotland, being married to an English woman. I am all for Scottish independence. It would be about time.

Professor Chaos said...

I was really surprised to see how closely divided Scots are on this issue. I just assumed they would want to be an independent nation. Shows you what I know.

Like our never-ending debate about Quebec separating from Canada. I am so tired that I can make a decision on what to have for dinner. I wish we didn't have boarders. Maybe that would help everyone get along. Not likely though.

I've never seen Willie hold the spotlight for that long!

Francie M said...

My heart is with them, but my head isn't. I do wish them them the best though and hope the YES side wins because nobody should have to live through more than one referendum! (like the good old Canadian neverendum, eh?)

JACKIESUE said...

ok..so lets say they vote to leave the British Empire...what if Great Britian says fuck you..you can't go..>???

dbs said...

Slainte!

Riot Kitty said...

I don't know why they voted no. The British have had enough countries under their thumbs over the centuries.

Jim said...

Wonder what my ancestors (MacDonalds and MacIsaacs) would be thinking? I have a feeling that they would want to be their own country.
Well that didn't happen this time.
