Scottish independence

My mother-in-law is on vacation there now and I asked her whether people are talking about the vote next week. She responded:

Absolutely everywhere!!! It is causing a great deal of concern. Families and friends simply can not agree on what is best for the country. The vote will be so close. There is no way to predict the outcome. It will mean half the people in the country will be disappointed and/or angry. Things are VERY tense.

It will be very interesting to watch! Part of me doesn't wan to see the end of the United Kingdom, and thinks it would be unwise for Scotland to be independent. But the other part is curious to know what having an independent Scotland, and a diminished Great Britain, would be like.
