We gave the English a voice in the Scottish independence debate even though they don’t deserve one
General consensus: Londoners don’t have a clue and don’t give a toss
On the 18th of September there will be a referendum on whether Scotland should be an independent country.
The question “Should Scotland be an independent country?” will only be voted on by people who live in Scotland and are over the age of 16.
With that in mind, we asked a selection of Londoners their opinion on what should happen to Scotland.

He said: “I don’t think I’m informed enough to answer. I have a couple of friends who have opinions, one in particular who thinks it’s really dumb. He’s Scottish.”
Verdict: Seriously not bothered.
Position: London Imperial Graduate and Software Developer.
Verdict: Could go either way.
He said: “It would be great if they remained a part of the UK, but I’m not really bothered either way.”
Position: Student at Leeds University.
Verdict: No, but…
She said: “I don’t know much about it. However, I don’t see the benefits of splitting from the UK. Are they just trying to assert their dominance?”

Position: Works for a sports events company.
She said: “We were literally just talking about this on the way to lunch. Personally, I think it’s a good thing they are having a referendum and that they are going for independence.”
