In less than two weeks Scottish voters will be going to the polls to vote on whether to leave the 300 year old political union created with the Kingdom of England (and Wales), back in 1707.

For those of us not from the UK, how did it come to this? Here an interesting article by Alan Little, thankfully light on the rhetoric, on the history behind the Referendum and the possible ramifications whether the Scots vote Yea or Nay:

What does the rest of the UK (rUK) think about it all? Do they even care one way or the other?
