    Scotland on the Eve of Independence Referendum

    The long-standing issue of the Scottish independence is to be settled by a referendum scheduled for September 18, when voters will be asked one question only, "Should Scotland become an independent country?" If the majority of Scots vote for independence, then on March 24, 2016 Scotland will secede from the United Kingdom. According to Scotland's latest poll, conducted by Survation, "No" voters who oppose Scottish independence from the UK are six points ahead of "Yes" voters who wish to see their country split from England and Northern Ireland.
