    My guess is they'll join the Nordics and start using the Scottish Krona.

    As an American, I want Scotland to stay for the very selfish reason that if Scotland leaves, It won't be US and UK and anymore. It's nice have to major English speaking nations having the word United in them.

    In actuality, I really don't give a crap either way. My own country is going to the dogs and nobody seems to be doing anything about it.

    If Scotland does vote no, The United Kingdom should restructure itself into a federation, with the Federal Government at Westminister and each "state" having it's own internal government.

    If Scotland go independant, it won't be long before Wales and Nothern Ireland will aseell. It will be the end of the union.

    Which is what i am hoping for then it could be called United kingdom of England but the one side effect that it may have is for royal family not to exist either anymore

    I don't think it will even be called "united kingdom of england"
    I don't think the royal family will "not exist"
    Any reason why you want the union to end?

    I'd expect they'd either keep the pound as an interim before introducing their own currency or adopting that of whatever regional bloc they may end up joining. Keeping the sterling in perpetuity is also a possibility, but not a very likely one imo.

    The Nordic Council is definitely interested in an independent Scotland shacking up with them, but I haven't heard anything floated about a common currency, even in name.

    It would just be the Kingdom of England in that scenario (which I don't feel is likely since neither N. Ireland or Wales are likely to break away; devolution is as far as I see that going), and the Union dissolving would probably have little effect, if any, on the English monarchy. The monarchy could potentially even retain nominal sovereignty over whatever states might break away, should they choose to join the Commonwealth as realms.

    Scotland will most likely use the scottish krone, or they will have the chance to join the euro according the a news update.

    That's actually a pretty good idea, why not use haggis?

    As much as I enjoy the union we share, independence seems like the best choice for Scotland.

    The Euro is slowly dying just like the United States Dollar in fact the euro was one of the causes if not the main cause for greece, spain and cyprus as its a debt based money system just like the USD which essentially means that governments can't issue there own money with out taking a loan from banks and banks who create the loan for the government via fractional reserve lending. and the taxpayers get stuck with the bill on debt that can never be repaid
    how FRL works is
    1. you make a deposit of 10 USD into your bank
    2. the bank only keeps 1 USD of that deposit in reserves
    3 the bank is not only able to loan out your 10 USD but there also able to loan out 10 times what you deposited in this case 100 USD (its money created out of thin air and is the main cause of inflation)
    4. the bank then collects interest on these loans while there being paid back often at ridiculous rates 6 to 20% percent in some cases

    also as a result of the Debt based money system no country on the face of this planet can pay off the debt without extinguishing there money supply

    SO HELLO DEBT AND DEFAULT HERE WE COME

    Yeah I wouldn't go with the euro, Scotland will most likely create their own currency anyway.
