Next thursday, voters in Scotland get to vote on Independence. From what I've read the situation is fraught with problems to be resolved if the vote is positive - many economic problems with banks, currency, etc. For money they could stick to UK money, use Euros or coin their own. I like the idea of their own - and such a naming opportunity: I propose 100 Kilts = 1 BagPipe as their units. The paper money would be plaid of course with different plaids for the different denominations. - so maybe it should be 100 BagPipes = 1 Kilt?
And then on November 9, Catalonia may vote on the Independence - although the Spanish Government may not allow such a vote. The issue for the Spanish Government is that Catalonia is the most financially healthy part of Spain and thus it would have a serious economic effect on Spain. I read that among other things Spain could prevent Catalonia from joining the EU.
Maybe Catalonia and Scotland should form a union itself: Scotalonia? Think of Tapas bars with Kippers, Haggis, Srovis, Clootie Dumplings.
