Even though, I am not a citizen of UK and it might not have any direct effect in my life I take this stand for the welfare of the people. Minister Alex Salmond said that "the 300-year-old Union is no longer fit for purpose and that an independent Scotland, aided by its oil wealth, would be one of the world's richest countries." Do you really think so? Britain is No.19 in oil production and No.6 on the GDP list (Year:2013). Scotland separating from UK will only drop these numbers down not up. The 300 Year Old Union is a part of history it self destroying it would mean abandoning you'r own history an origins. The people say: No 57%, Yes 43% (www.bbc.com). Those are not the only reason, with growing external threats of war or attacks from terrorist groups growing, separating would not be a good idea.
