Scottish independence would redefine landscape

Scottish independence would redefine landscape

LONDON (Reuters) - Alex Ferguson, a Scotsman who has made his name in England as an icon of British sport, puts it this way: "We don't live in a foreign country; we are just in another part of the family of the UK." Ah, but what happens if that family breaks up? On Sept. 18, Scotland will vote on independence from the United Kingdom and, though sport is a mere sideshow to more weighty political issues dominating the referendum debate, the implications for the sporting landscape on both sides of the Anglo-Scottish border will be immense if the nation decides to go it alone #facebook #United States #London #Brazil #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #Latin America #british #opinion

British banks warn they'll head south if Scotland quits UK

EDINBURGH (Reuters) - The battle for the hearts and heads of the Scottish people intensified on Thursday as two banks said they would shift their registered head offices to London if Scotland voted to break away from the United Kingdom in a referendum next week. The warning from Edinburgh-based Lloyds and RBS put the independence campaign on the defensive and followed a new poll which showed a slender lead for those wishing to keep the 307-year long union with England #United States #Business #London #Brazil #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Argentina #Mexico #european #british #opinion
