Analysing the survey, which put yes at 51%, to 49% for no, Kellner wrote:"Seldom has the term 'knife-edge' carried such lethal force. A two-point gap is too small for us to call the outcome."The Scots do have a long history as a separate people, nation, kingdom. According to Wikipedia, it's 2,000, yes, two thousand years old. This chart covers the second half of that time.
The speed and size of the collapse in the no campaign's lead is astonishing, Kellner said. "The fact that the contest is too close to call is itself remarkable, as Better Together seemed to have victory in the bag. Month after month, they held a steady lead, averaging no 58%, yes 42%. In the past four weeks, support for the union has drained away at an astonishing rate."
That's in total contrast to countries invented by Great Britain, like Jordan, modern Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, India and Pakistan. Don't forget their biggest con on the world, "Arab Palestine," which they have been trying to get as to block a Jewish State for almost a hundred years.
I don't see why Scotland shouldn't be be able to regain independence if the people want. They certainly pass the shared history, culture test unlike most modern nations. And supporting their quest doesn't in any way give legitimacy to the Arabs here. Just the opposite. Contrast documented Scottish History with the faux people of "Palestine," sic.
