Scotland Would Hardly Be the First to Go Its Own Way

Back when Rule Brittania meant something, much, if not most, of the world's population was under British rule, part of the British Empire.  This handy map from TheCommonwealth.org shows how many countries have come to independence from the Empire.

If the Scottish people do vote this week to secede, they'll be in good company.
