Sent off my postal vote today in the independence referendum. <a href="https://blogs.kde.org/2014/09/02/should-scotland-be-independent-country">My other blog gives some background and reasons</a> and <a href="http://jriddell.org/diary/?p=123">my other other blog</a> gives a good reason to vote Yes, government will work better with a larger union (EU) to sort out the boring trade stuff and movement and a closer government to sort out the public services stuff, there's no need for a middle layer of government.
Probably the reason most relevant here is the need to keep the NHS and social care services and benefits in the control of a government that wants society to care for itself. That's more likely to happen in an independent Scotland than in with a UK government setting tax and controlling spending limits and benefits.
Don't worry rest-of-UK friends, you'll be very welcome in the newly independent Scotland.
