    Scotland

    What do you think about the idea that Scotland competing as an independent nation? If Alex Salmond gets his way in Scottish parliament, then they could seperate from the UK.

    What Scottish acts would you like to see in Eurovision if this was to ever happen?

    I have a few ideas, not sure if any would be any good. Bands like Travis and Franz Ferdinand could be good choices.

    I agree with this, I only think independent recognized states within the European geographical continent (plus the few non- European exceptions that already takes part) should be able to enter ESC.

    However, if they get independence, then of course I'm all for them entering ESC! And voila we would get a celtic/anglo-saxic voting bloc aswell

    Yeah actually now I'm against Scottish Independence. The English would give their 12 to them rather than to us, can't be having that!

    actually, we'd get 12 from both. Scotland is 50% Irish (and 50% anti-Irish, but you cant downvote a country), and the rest of GB (England, Wales) has more Irish people than Scottish people. Factor in as well the fact that 50% of Northern Ireland is Irish, that's 24 guaranteed points...

    Re: Scotland

    Is there a broadcasting company which is member of EBU? Perhaps BBC Scotland? How freestanding are they? Do they make TV programs and what are their level on skills. Can they manage an ESC win?
