Default Scottish Independence Vote Today

What will happen? Why did England let them have then chance to vote?

Because the other option is what Spain has done all this time, tell the catalan and basque minority to shut up and deny them the vote because the constitution says so (it does say Spain cannot be broken).
The problem is... You just need a little patience and the separatists will grow stronger with each tiny problem. In the 90's you had, I don't know, 10% separatists? Now you have roughly half the population demanding the end of Spain. Thanks to the hard times we're enduring.

It's easier to let them vote when they're a minority than to let them build up the strength to truly do it by force.

Bavaria should vote too and leave!

It makes me chuckle, hearing stories of the yes voters saying they will shoot all the no voters when they get indenpendancy.
Im sure its sensationalised, but the logic fallacy makes me laugh.

How about we keep Bavaria and you join us too? You were part of us once and you know that, deep down, you want to be again :p (I'm talking about the Holy Roman Empire of German Nation, not that one that came later)

I've obviously not done full research and comparison, but I can't think of a country more chronically dysfunctional than the holy roman empire.

So yeah, sounds like a sweet deal.

I think he meant in the sense of slow being originally of Chinese nationality. you know, with the state of democracy in China. But you're always welcome to jump to stupid assumptions.

US didn't allow such thing, that's why we have the civil war.

The US wasn't really a modern democracy either.

I think that is preferable to secession, at least in the case of the US. Look at North and South Korea. No majority in the US wants to secede anymore.

Ha Ha! The density continues! You may note that my statement was grounded in the Chinese notion of territorial integrity and sovereignty, a notion that continues to dominate the Chinese state to this day.

Unlike in China, where union is dictated through gun and rhetoric, we British have always been in union voluntarily. The English and Scottish parliaments voted to unify in 1707, and in the same way we can vote to dissolve that union today. Our principles remain stalwart, as do those of the Chinese. It is up for you to decide which notions you find more savoury.
