So apparently, our First Minister Alex Salmond reckons that Scotland will have gained independance by 2017.
I have yet to make up my mind about the Scottish independence (and I wonder if I ever will) but I'm getting bored of the broken promises and the SNP "propaganda" already.
However, I really enjoyed reading the Guardian's take on what the UK would be like if Scotland did indeed decide to go it alone. It's here and I think it makes for a funny, light hearted and actually rather instructive read.
On a different note ... Whilst discussing this article with one of my friend, I learnt a new word: smarmy. Apparently this is one way to to describe our First Minister but it would most certainly apply to many British and French politicians!
