Today Scotland is voting whether to go for full independence. It is very close (which may not necessarily be the way you want it when you are right next door to the other country). Funny, it only took about 900 years for this to possibly happen peacefully...so far. (So good luck Iraq!)
So how would a "yes" vote go over in Northern Ireland, where things have not been of more recent vintage, so peaceful?
That really is a conundrum, especially with the old lately-compromising extremists are dying off.
But of all the results, maybe a 50-50 split is the most opaque possible outcome.
