Bookmakers are setting odds for the Scottish independence referendum


Bookmakers are tipping one of the most important political events of this year.

Scottish referendum can change the map of Europe and start a new history of the continent. Scotland since 300 years has been dreaming about independence and is getting very close to achieving its dreams. First steps in this direction were taken back in 1998 when the referendum was held, in the result of which separate Scottish Parliament was created. In 2010 a project of the bill was released and preparations for it have began. Date of referendum was not chosen by chance, in 2014 falls 700 anniversary of the legendary victory of Scots over the British in the War of Independence of Bannockburn.

Since several years the most prominent representatives of Scotland are commenting on the referendum in order to persuade the Scots to support the the idea of independance. Currently, the Parliament does not have many followers among citizens, to which always more important was walfer than political aspirations. According to many surveys more Scots are against sovereignty, having in mind all difficulties related to going out of currency of the United Kingdom and going in the European Union as a new independent state.
