Al Picozzi's curator insight, August 7, 2013 8:18 PM

Really interesting news in Geopolitics and devolution.  If Scotland does vote to split form the UK, and if the UK even aloows the vote to mean something, what will happen to all the militray stationed in Scotland?  How about all the UK businesses there?  What will an independant Scotland do? What currency wil they have, the Euro? Will they even get into the EU? Lots of questions to answer here and way to many to list.  Something to think about though isn't it?
