Re: Far side of the Pond, watching.
Scot who recently became a US citizen, over here in Texas. Your analysis largely mirrors mine, and I *have* been following. It's been touchy speaking to my parents recently because they both have been spouting anti-immigrant UKIP bullshit, since last year, and we're determined that Scotland shouldn't leave the Union. *sigh*
At least I'll probably win that argument, now - pretty sure Scotland is leaving, after this debacle.
