Might the UK soon be a little less United?
A new agreement will pave the way for Scotland to vote (but likely not until 2014) on its independence and whether to break away from London control.
It may be a bit early to say whether the referendum will be passed, but we do know how some Scots ¬†feel about the issue.
Sean Connery's vote would be yes. He may portrayed one of the British government's most faithful servants as 007, but the actor has long been an¬†ardent¬†nationalist. He's one of ¬†the Scots that's helped launched the campaign "Yes Scotland"¬†to "build a groundswell of support for an independent Scotland."
But has it worked so far? Not exactly.¬†A survey released last week by TNS-BMRB showed that only 28% of Scots favor leaving the United Kingdom.
While it may be early to gauge the pulse of Scotland on a vote for independence, we definitely know how Prime Minister David Cameron feels about the issue. He tweeted this earlier Monday:
Here's a picture of the historic Scottish Referendum agreement I signed today. I believe the UK is better together. http://t.co/1mJXynvK—
