I say 'we'. By that I mean the people who are resident in Scotland will decide the fate of Scotland - a large number of whom have no claim to being Scottish whatsoever. Scots like me who were born and raised there, but at the time of the referendum are resident elsewhere, are not allowed to vote, so I have no say in the destiny of my country.
Up until recently, the polls have suggested that the 'NO' campaign will easily win and that nothing will change. The gap has narrowed however, and it may be close, so there is a chance that it could go the other way.
And then what?
And then I'll look into what it all means. I haven't done too much of this as I couldn't vote. And given the polls, it always looked unlikely that I, and all the other Scots who live outside the country, wouldn't need to worry about it. But that might not be the case, and the implications are far reaching.
Too far reaching?
There might be a million good reasons why it would be better for me personally to have Scotland remain part of the UK. It would certainly make life less complicated. On paper it might be best for the majority of Scots living in Scotland to remain part of the Union. The head might say 'No', and we're supposed to be quite a clever breed. But my heart says 'YES' and I hope and pray come Friday morning, or whenever the result is declared, that I have a whole pile of problems to face in becoming a citizen of an independent Scotland. Because being Scottish... I couldn't be anything else.
