Today is the Scottish referendum for independence. Scottish of 16 years and older vote for Yes or No.
As an outsider from another EU country I follow this with interest. How would Scotland votes? If Scotland says no, there would not be many changes. If Scotland votes yes, I have the following questions: Is the country strong enough to stand on its feet if Scottish votes yes? How would the separation from GB be executed? Would independent Scotland use € and be an EU member? Would Scotland be included in Schengen treaty? What will be over from the Great Britain?
And more importantly, how would the result affect other independence movements in Europe such as in Catalunia & Basque? This Scottish referendum has stirred the same movements in the Low Lands; Belgium Vlaanderen/Flanders wants their freedom and in The Netherlands Friesland wants more autonomy.
I am following this matter with huge interest. To Scotland, good luck today!
