Also, not wanting to take this sensible, pragmatic discussion down the political route. I think there is a real likelihood that if we leave, sadly the Jocks will end up having another referendum in order to free themselves from the faceless, dictatorial bureaucrats in Westminster and then, ironic as it seems, apply to join the EU to be ruled by faceless, dictatorial bureaucrats in Brussels. I hope that doesn't happen, but the silver lining for me is that my grandfather was Scottish. He was in the army during the war and was stationed in Liverpool before being shipped out to North Africa. He met my grandmother in Liverpool. I always joked that when the war began he was minding his own business on a quiet farm in Ayrshire and ended up with a scouse wife and malaria!
Anyway, rambling now. The SNP have said that in the event of independence anyone with a Scottish grandparent will be able to apply for citizenship. I just hope the initiation ceremony doesn't involve eating deep fried pizza and wearing a kilt!
