a professional soccer player before becoming a politician,

Most Scots, even those wanting independence, are pragmatic enough to know that they can't afford it. Scotland raises it's own taxes and manages most of it's affairs but overspends every year, borrowing billions.

Correction: Scotland is not a country. It is not even a state/province within a federation. It is a territory within a unitary state that was once an independent kingdom. This is like calling Saitama Prefecture a country. Devolved govt is just an arrangement with the central govt for self-rule, but can be revoked at the central govt's behest.
