For the wrong reason, unless Scotland wants to create their own currency, rather than become a state of the EU, with a currency controlled by Bonn.

I agree. In light of the past ten years experience with both the Euro and the Pound, it would be downright criminal for them not to create their own currency were they to declare independence.

Surely they have been watching the economic convulsions in Ireland, Greece, Italy, Spain....I think it would be interesting were they to do something with Iceland.

Their currency is controlled by the UK but for UK purposes, not Scotands, and any transfer payments end. All is well because of the oil, except apparently that is about sucked dry,
