If you are English would you be happy to see Scotland/Wales/NI have complete independence from the rest of the UK leaving England also as an Independent State.

Yes, providing the costs of the split were bourne equally and that there were no handouts afterwards. I have no problems, althought I feel it would be a sad day if it happened, with England becoming a solo Country, I just wonder how Scotland and Wales would exist if the support from England ceased.
I think that in time Ireland will be reunited, a subject that I certainly wouldn''t want to comment further on.

Are you trying to make this a closed discussion, keeping thos nasty Scots, Welsh and Irish out?

No, being that my brother and I are the only english in the family, the rest being s.Irish and Scottish, what affect would this have on our family? Dividing the countries, like it has been said in this thread, would residents who had moved to the UK from Scot/Wales etc need a visa?

There is nothing to be gained if there is a split and co-independance.

Yes, but you keep telling me its a question for the English to make their own minds up about so I am asking the English. NI is certainly split about their future. Scotland shout loud and then appear to back away when pushed. The Welsh have a North South divide as to Union.

At this moment in time I don't think Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland could be self sufficient without the finacial funding coming out from England. What commodities have they got that would enable them to survive as totally Independant States without such funding?.

North Sea oil. But that's only going to last another 30 or so years.

What Scotland would need, but doesn't have, is competant polititians!

I'm not English (which is Nutty's criteria for voting on the poll) so I've been quiet on this one, but I have to say, I would hate to see any separation.

Question is, just what is England's economy relying on these days? There's no manufacturing to speak of, and only a handful of insurance/banking firms so what is it keeping England afloat?

Not only do I believe that this would be a nonsense, I believe that the investment so far in devolution has been an utter waste of billions of pounds of British taxpayers money, not to mention Scottish oil revenue.

The Scots have a massive drugs problem that has grown while inordinate amounts of money have been frittered away on the Scottish Parliament.

No surprises here it seems to me. It is probably only a matter of time before the nationalists in Scotland get their way and achieve full independence. I'm not so sure the Welsh or Irish would follow suit as I credit them with more sense.

This DisUnited Kingdom should no longer be known as Great Britain

I for one am in favour of England going it alone and chucking out the other three itinerant nations as they no longer display any loyalty to either crown or country so sod em

The whole devolution argument was always flawed. Latest worries concerning us having a Scottish Prime Minister rightly concern the truly English among us.

As far as I am concerned, devolution has woken a sleeping giant. That giant will slumber no more until England is independent of the other three nations with itys own government, justice system and national flag.
