Should Scotland become an independent country? This massive choice is being made by the people of Scotland on the 18th of September.

This is called a referendum which means a person answers yes or no to a question or proposal. In this case, Scottish people will answer yes or no to their country becoming independent.

For over 300 years, Scotland has been a part of the United Kingdom so this is a huge step for the country.

If the people vote yes, the proposal is that the Queen would remain Head of State in Scotland but Scotland would be an independent country same as Australia and New Zealand.

This means they could choose to have a different currency or different laws than countries that are not independent to the United Kingdom.

Those who vote yes share the belief that the future of Scotland should be in Scotland’s hands.
