The Simpsons' groundskeeper Willie has a few things to say prior to the Sept 18 Scottish elections.
Scotland the free: Remain part of Great Britain? Or should the Scots 'go it alone'?
Charles Wooley admits this story is personal.
You see, it's the story of his birthplace - Scotland - and the historic decision it must make in September.
Scots will vote on whether to remain part of Great Britain or to 'go it alone': to finally be free from the "Sasinacks", the English, who have lorded over them for centuries. There will be many whose knowledge of Scottish history extends only as far as Mel Gibson in the movie Braveheart.
But for Charles, the argument over Scottish independence has been life-long and one that has his own family divided.
Why Scotland voted "Nae"

The following post-referendum poll from Lord Ashcroft does a good summary of who voted how and why. However, the most telling distinction is the following:
Voters aged 16-17: YES: 71%; NO: 29%
Voters aged 65+: YES: 27%; NO: 73%
How will last night's vote look like in 5, 10 or 15 years when today's 17 year olds are Scotland's prime demographic?
Was Scottish Vote Rigging Caught On Tape?
Nice one Scotland https://t.co/qYsiUYcM9V— Bill Franklin (@billfranklinuk) September 19, 2014
