Today’s Question: Today is a most important day, and potentially a day that will be remembered throughout history as Scottish citizens head to the polls to vote on independence.

Scotland has been a part of the Kingdom since its assimilation in 1707 under the Acts of Union. Many things could change for the UK including their flag and potentially their anthem which is what song? http://ift.tt/1udaQjp
