H/T to EDGAR for the idea
OK, so we've had the vote for independence. Would everybody entitled to vote now, be allowed to vote, regardless of their Nationality? So presuming they could. Scotland has voted 60/40 to instruct the SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT to negotiate our departure from the UNITED KINGDOM and that is achieved.
WHO THEN WOULD BE ENTITLED TO CALL THEMSELVES A SCOT AND CARRY A SCOTTISH PASSPORT?
Obviously someone born in Scotland. What about someone resident here for say 10 years? Would people be allowed dual-nationality with for instance England? What about someone with a Scottish parent but born outside of Scotland? Would that mean we would have Australians, New Zealanders and Canadians claiming Scottish Nationality? Or for that matter, anyone from the Scottish Diaspora whose great, great granny had a fling with a big, hairy Scotsman and a wee, baldy Scots baby appeared?
As far as I know, it's never been discussed. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
