UConn Professor: Many Changes If Scotland Votes For Independence

(Storrs, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – It’s the final day of campaigning before a referendum on Scottish independence is held tomorrow.

A break from the United Kingdom would mean a host of changes.

Among them: the removal of the British nuclear deterrent from Scottish soil.

Christopher Clark, professor and head of the history department at UConn, says although Scotland would want to keep the pound as its currency, that would be met with resistance.

The main U.K. political parties have said they won’t permit that to happen and that’s the biggest uncertainty, according to Clark.

Clark says also at issue would be how to divide revenues which come from the North Sea oil fields.
