Because if they vote to be self governed next year, the nordic's have sorta said that they'll consider Scotland as one of the nordic nations(Norway, Sweeden, Denmark and Finland as of right now). At least that's what I have heard. And I for one would love to have Scotland as a part of the club

Pic unrelated. I just havent used it in AGES!

Where have you heard that the Nordics would welcome Scotland as a Nordic nation?

I wouldn't support Scotland becoming Nordic. They're British or Celtic, not Nordic. I don't say it by meaning any offence, but it's just that I don't think we're in the same group. We share lots of history, true, but they have never historically been Nordic. England is much closer to Nordic culture than Scotland since something like 3/4 of England was taken by the Danes and influenced a lot of the language.

I mean, do you think for example Ireland should be Nordic? The Norwegians founded Dublin and built many settlements in Ireland, but does that make Ireland Nordic?

tl;dr: Although Scotland is awesome, they're not Vikings

In a way I agree fully with you. They are not Nordic, but I still wouldn't mind having them any way As for where I got it from, I don't quite remember... I would have to look into it, I'll look for the source if you want me to

Apparently this could actually be happening due to the results of a recent poll showing that 52% of Scottish people want independence and only 37% want to stay part of Britain, the other 11% are undecided.

Just because the polls may state that doesn't mean Scotland is going to get her independence in the first place.

Besides, let's be honest here. Does anyone REALLY think Scotland can survive on it's own? They'd be running back to English Parliament asking for money within a year if not earlier.

They want to magically turn into a "Nordic country" while spending more, taxing less and running a budget surplus.

I kinda feel like if Scotland wants into Scandinavia they should be obliged to give all of us 1 free kilt so we can have a massive multi country welcome party with a kilt theme!!

Nordic nations, not Scandinavia. Scandinavia is just Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.

If they become self-governed does that mean England can stop giving them so many ******* handouts?

Scotland is like our version of Mexico.

Iceland is both yes and no, there is no official statement if it's a part of Scandinavia or not, but since such a large group of people on Iceland has their ancestor from Finland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden it's a little of personal opinion about it!

Well there is the connection of culture. The similarities of art and such from 900-1100 or so. When the Vikings were alive and fighting to controll the British isles. That's the connection, but whatever

And they would still be a part of the British "Empire" they would just be self governed. Like Australia or Canada.

yea they would be part of the commonwealth but they would be as British as Canada or Australia.

Would prefer all of the UK to be part of this Nordic collective. If Viking invasion is the connection haha, be awesome being part of the Nordic bloc

Scotland did go to war agains't England allied with the Nordics, and lost but whatevs.
Also... the UK is very touchy. The popular sentiment is that all of the members save for England hate being a part of it but the political sentiment is that the best option economically and politically is keep on being part of it.
