As you know many a Brexit thread was closed. I suspect that many a Scottish Independence thread will be closed too.
Let's not make this the first one guys. No politics please.
I appreciate what you say Simon - but would suggest itís more of an economic subject. One that I am sure you will appreciate from both sides given your place of residence and mine!

Scotland- population 5.46 million

South West - population 5.57 million


Scotland GDP = £166.8 billion

South West GDP = £145.6 billion


GDP per person
Scotland £30,530
South West £23,362
U.K. average £27,428


U.K. Government Spend per person from tax revenue

Scotland = £11,566 per person
South West = £9,193 per person.


This is a 25.8% difference in favour of Scotland and to the detriment of the SW region. And yet population wise there is very little difference.

Literally - from where I stand right now - what is not to like about Scottish Independence.
