In the beginning, England and Scotland were not only separate, they were frequently at war. Ever since that fateful day in 1707 when the two countries got together and formed a single country, Scotland has been part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. Today’s referendum vote, which has been in the works for almost two and one-half years, offers Scotland the chance to break free from Great Britain and gain its independence. Who better to explain the points to consider on both sides of the issue than the great John Oliver. After all, he all but nailed the debate on the issue of Net Neutrality. It only makes sense that the possible secession of Scotland is up next.
Here, the host of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, takes an in-depth look at both campaigns by not only examining their rather polite but ‘very British’ slogans, looks into each campaign’s financing and analyzing both platforms. Warning…there is just a wee bit of strong language ahead…it is HBO after all.
So…will it be Yes Scotland or Better Together who comes out on top after today’s vote? My question is what will it mean for Doctor Who? After all, two of the best Traveling Time Lords in recent memory, David Tennant and Peter Capaldi, are Scots! Not trying to sway you in any way, just stating fact. Now, here’s your chance to have your voice heard on this side of the Atlantic!
