I don’t really know much about this, though I lived in Edinburgh for five months. But I’m predicting, based on purely subjective criteria, that the Scots will vote to remain with Britain. I say this simply because it’s the tradition and because the economic and logistic uncertainties are so large.
I have no dog in this race: I love Scotland and if they want independence, that’s their call. If that happens, I’ll celebrate it. After all, it’s a democratic vote.
UPDATE: A bulletin from CNN:
Polls close in the vote to determine whether Scotland will become independent or remain part of the United Kingdom.
Those in line to vote when polls closed were allowed to cast ballots. Results are expected to be announced over the next few hours.
