Apart from the road to England, Tunnock's caramel logs, and Groundskeeper Willie, what good things have come out of Scotland?
i thought we didn't discuss politics here on WebmasterWorld? quite honestly this is a very emotive subject although to be fair this thread hasn't got out of hand (yet) but there are lots of brits on this board and it could do.
slightly tongue in cheek >>> ... quite frankly as a top rate tax paying londoner, i'd be happy for london to be independent ... we are subsidising the rest of the UK by the bucketload.

OT ... i thought we didn't discuss politics here on WebmasterWorld?Just to explain, one of the reasons I felt OK in starting this thread is that it is not about politics per se. It is a straight vote for independence, in or out. No one is voting for any political party.
I wonder what difference these things actually make for normal everyday people.
We won't be able to call ourselves the UK or Great Britain anymore, because both those names are tied in with Scotland. [...]
So we will have to dream up a new name for ourselves!
Only part of Wales was ever a principality [...]
The governments of the United Kingdom and of Wales almost invariably define Wales as a country. The Welsh Assembly Government says: "Wales is not a Principality. Although we are joined with England by land, and we are part of Great Britain, Wales is a country in its own right." The title Prince of Wales is still conferred on the heir apparent to the British throne, currently Prince Charles. However the Prince of Wales has no constitutional role in modern Wales. According to the Welsh Assembly Government: "Our Prince of Wales at the moment is Prince Charles, who is the present heir to the throne. But he does not have a role in the governance of Wales, even though his title might suggest that he does."
