Scottish independence: ‘Finance industry would leave’

Scottish independence: ‘Finance industry would leave’ | Als Return to Education | Scoop.it
ThE financial services industry north of the Border would relocate to England if Scotland votes for independence next year, a senior Conservative has warned at the party conference.
Al Picozzi's insight:

Thie vote could be a major blow to the economy of Scotland.  If the finance industry does leave to England this could leave a new nation very vunerable economically.  Will they be admitted to the EU if there is no finacne industry in the country?  Will other countried recognize Scotland as an independant nation?  What of defense?  Most of the military belongs to Great Britian, will they all leave?  will they stay?  Will Scotland even be allowed to leave, vote of no vote?  Devolution forces are in Scotland, especially historical.  The people might vote for independence, but in this day and age, it is something that must not be taken lightly.

Al Picozzi's insight:

In a hard time in Mali people are missing a right that here in the US most people do not take advange of, the right to vote.  One man had to leave a refugee camp in order to get his voting card, but he did it even with all the danger involved.  Hard to understand how the people in the US just do not vote, especailly when compared to other areas of the world, it is completely safe.
