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—
