Who, after all, is Scottish? Those born in Scotland? People with Scottish ancestry?
There are five million people in Scotland. Those of voting age can have their say in the independence referendum. The 800,000 Scots in the rest of the UK cannot vote in it. But what is the essence of being Scottish?
This is NOT a forum for religious, political, or nationalistic discussion

(Added: I thought the temperance movement came from the USA?)
Anyways, we're all British.
The SNP also granted the vote to 16-17 year olds who are far more likely to be pro-nationalist.
On the residence Vs "nationality" debate: you can't reasonably define eligibility in any other way than residency.
they'll still be voting for the same parties
