Scotland's Indepence Essay

2052 words - 9 pages


Scotland’s independence 
Scotland is changing the “norms” by trying to get more leisure to their policies to 
eventually get more freedom in their state, and, if possible, become totally independent. The 
question to ask now is, what is England's response to this movement. Will they follow in 
somewhat of the same tracks, or take another path. I think that England will not follow in the 
same tracks as Scotland, but I do think that sometime in the near future, Scotland can become 
independent. On September 19th, scotland had polled a 55%­45% vote, (which is not its first 
time trying to gain independence) keeping its connection and staying with the United Kingdom.

 Lastly, the 


remaining 26% wanted a portion of everything (Macartney 35). Both meaning that they wanted 
to keep all possible relations with England, and on top of that give them absolute representation 
throughout Europe instead of the other options; these were the Euro­nats. People were swayed 
because of the fact that mainly the biggest support groups were the ones supporting 
non­independence and to stay as much with England as physically possible.  
This topic connects very well with both culturalism and structuralism. First structuralism, 
connects with this point because Scotland gave their citizens the privilege to vote (once again 
because it has failed in the past) to vote for Scottish independence. In the past people voted to 
keep ties with England, but Scotland continues to strive for departure. This brought up the part of 
structuralism where the people are voting just because they are following the ways of the 
“game”. From the first time Scotland has tried to sway for independence, the votes for it have 
increased, but not enough to take full action upon it. When in my view, if they really wanted 
fully independence, then the people will speak out about it when the time comes. The second 
theory that connects to this issue is culturalism. Culturalism plays a role in this issue because 
Scotland wants to gain full self­sufficiency so that it can change some of the norms within the 
country, but also keep the cultural norms in without any interference with England norms. But it 
also wants to keep some ties with England.  
The possible pros and cons if Scotland were to gain independence (The Week UK). First 
off, if scotland were to gain independence, it would, for a short period of time, keep it under the 
queen's rule. Queen Elizabeth II, who also rules Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. But, being 
that Scotland has mostly nationalists whom are republican, it would eventually vote for the end 
of the queen's reign in their state. This would result in an actual more forward statement on how 


serious Scotland truly is. That they will dethrone their leader who has led them for decades, to 
begin a whole new aspect to Scotland. If this happened, the queen would have to call upon a 
governor­general to take order for the time being. Having this happen will eventually require the 
people to appoint representatives who make policy decisions on behalf of the queen, which could 
make quite a few changes in Scotland's overall system, rules, and laws. A con would be that with 
Scotland gaining independence, it also is basically breaking apart from England as a whole. And 
it would make it so that Scottish people would lose their British citizenship. The only ones who 
would keep their citizenship would be the very few people who happen to be certified as a “dual 
citizen.” A topic that was a big controversy was, if Scotland split, would it continue to use the
