“Should Scotland be an independent country?”
4.3 million Scots will be answering this question today after months of anticipation, discussion and debate. Scotland’s independence referendum certainly stands out – it’s rare for a vote like this to take place in a country free from war, political chaos and violence. South Sudan is the most recent nation to gain its independence after a referendum was passed with almost 99 percent of the vote in 2011. Will Scotland join it and some 22 other countries that have said yes over the past seven decades? We’ll find out tomorrow.
