Indeed - I'd like to see what would happen if they actually got what they're after.

Yep as mentioned above the EU is a bit cash strapped at the moment. Plus the only export Scotland really has is heart disease and alcoholism.

If they declare independence from Great Britain, would they still be part of the United Kingdom?

Might Northern Ireland declare independence too, and they and Scotland become Great Pictland or something? Or what if they both join up with Ireland and they all declare independence, and become the Gaelic-Pictish Commonweal? Would Iceland join them?

I think Germany should annex these new countries. No reason.

yeah, Vikings - on Iceland... but not Scotland or Ireland.

Just compare the languages. Case closed. Lets get drunk and invade somebody. Like Poland. Or France.

The Vikings took Irish slaves with them to Iceland when they founded the place. Iceland was built by Irish slaves and the world's most lazy Vikings.

And the only one where you wouldn't need a hazmat suit, blindfolds and/or padding, who looks really sweet - moves like a gorilla.

Sad, really.
