Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I haven't been following the debate on Scottish independence so I can't comment directly.  

I do note the pro-independence side has a major question they need to consider:

What is the SNP's position on the Crown lands?  Those are the Big Wahoonie - IIRC - of land ownership in Scotland.  As long as HRH is Head of State and privileged vis-a-vis the other economic entities - especially local land users - rural economic activity, and how much that activity positively affects the rest of the Scottish economy, will not substantially change.
