Scotland may have independence referendum next year

The ruling Scottish NationalParty has presented a plan to hold a referendum on independence in 2010. They need the support of the small Green Party to pass the law. There are also incognites on which options will the referendum ballot allow.

If successful, the Scottish process may herald the end of the United Kingdom as we know it. Together with other processes it may also signal the beginning of the "internal decolonization" in Western Europe, where many other nations are struggling for a long denied sovereignty.

Ooh, very nice, thanks.

All West Europe and the Mediterranean are still in need of an internal decolonization, like the one that has already happened in the eastern half of Europe. It is nice to see the different peoples "in arms" showing solidarity with each other.
