For many people, independence represents hope for the future.
For others, it represents fear of the unknown.
The truth is that Scotland’s future is unwritten, and everyone’s future is uncertain: here in Scotland, and in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and indeed in every country on this planet. The future is always unknown.
Scotland does not vote in the same way the rest of the UK does, but for years it has been saddled with the results of what England has chosen for it politically. Scotland infamously endured the poll tax for a full year before it was visited on the rest of the UK, an act I believe was in clear breach of the Treaty of Union of 1707.
