A good college friend is married to a Scotsman whom I met a couple of years back supports the Scottish independence movement. I was surprised to know that such movement exists aside from that of the Irish. With the referendum taking place on September 18 we are about to witness history unfold once more. Colin Daileda has a good piece on the pros and cons of Scottish independence which is based on this white paper produced by the Scottish government. With our own Bangsamoro Basic Law just submitted to Congress, all of these makes an interesting case study for students of Political Science and International law.
