This is about Scotland wanting its independence and taking its rightful place in
the world as a nation of self determination. I am of Scot heritage at the same
time I don't care for the EU they paralyze themselves in a bath of indecision.
I am of Highland Scot lineage and we never did like the English anyway. This is
Celts doing their thing and at the bottom of the heart the Campbell MacDonald
thing is still on when you strip away the thin veneer face it the Campbell's sided
with the English It was only four or five hundred years ago a blip in time when
grudges die hard

Seriously? Look at Canada and the US. The bulk of our trade is with them. If we cut off our exports to them, do you really think they'd have a problem replacing them from elsewhere?
The benefit is to Scotland in this case. Being part of the UK means there aren't the same excise and import taxes on their products and services that are exported throughout the UK. Separation and independence would see those taxes increase by quite a bit.
