YES or NO for GB?

Scottish are facing a big dilemma: to remain or not remain part of the Great Britain!

( British paper about the Queen’s position on the subject)  

Being in Scotland and England for this short period of two weeks allowed me to witness this historical moment closely. Should Scotland depart from the Great Britain? One should study history to understand the memories and foundations of a YES for a bit more than 50% of the votes according to the surveys. It is difficult to say what will happen as there are also the undecided voters. A Brazilian friend of mine who has lived and worked for more than 10 years in London told me: "I would not like them to go..." And this seems to be the way English are feeling.

There is a bond, anyway. For me, I would say they are very different and alike at the same time. I know it is a strange thing to say, but that is exactly how I feel. I understand the reasons, but GB has a glamour of its own. Whatever the case, and because it is a classic case of  "unsolved business" I just hope understanding and history make the ends meet.
