Because if they vote to be self governed next year, the nordic's have sorta said that they'll consider Scotland as one of the nordic nations(Norway, Sweeden, Denmark and Finland as of right now). At least that's what I have heard. And I for one would love to have Scotland as a part of the club

Pic unrelated. I just havent used it in AGES!

Where have you heard that the Nordics would welcome Scotland as a Nordic nation?

I wouldn't support Scotland becoming Nordic. They're British or Celtic, not Nordic. I don't say it by meaning any offence, but it's just that I don't think we're in the same group. We share lots of history, true, but they have never historically been Nordic. England is much closer to Nordic culture than Scotland since something like 3/4 of England was taken by the Danes and influenced a lot of the language.

I mean, do you think for example Ireland should be Nordic? The Norwegians founded Dublin and built many settlements in Ireland, but does that make Ireland Nordic?

tl;dr: Although Scotland is awesome, they're not Vikings

In a way I agree fully with you. They are not Nordic, but I still wouldn't mind having them any way As for where I got it from, I don't quite remember... I would have to look into it, I'll look for the source if you want me to

I don't want to cause you unnecessary work, looking through a lot of sources taking away time you would never get back.

If that happens that will be sweet, have a very good friend in Scotland and already live in Denmark myself

Apparently this could actually be happening due to the results of a recent poll showing that 52% of Scottish people want independence and only 37% want to stay part of Britain, the other 11% are undecided.
User avatar #54 to #42 - thatoneiranianguy (12/03/2013) [-]
Just because the polls may state that doesn't mean Scotland is going to get her independence in the first place.

Besides, let's be honest here. Does anyone REALLY think Scotland can survive on it's own? They'd be running back to English Parliament asking for money within a year if not earlier.

the most recent poll has staying in the union at a 9% lead against independance... source I'm Scottish

Scotland wants into Scandinavia?
This is new...
User avatar #41 to #23 - doctorhue (12/03/2013) [-]
No, but they want to be part of the Nordic countries.
#58 to #41 - Sampsy (12/03/2013) [-]
They want to magically turn into a "Nordic country" while spending more, taxing less and running a budget surplus.
User avatar #21 to #5 - stifflimb ONLINE (12/03/2013) [-]
I kinda feel like if Scotland wants into Scandinavia they should be obliged to give all of us 1 free kilt so we can have a massive multi country welcome party with a kilt theme!!
#46 to #21 - anonymous (12/03/2013) [-]
Nordic nations, not Scandinavia. Scandinavia is just Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.
User avatar #62 to #46 - stifflimb ONLINE (12/03/2013) [-]
You forgot Finland and Iceland is considered both in and not in scandi!
#19 to #5 - anonymous (12/03/2013) [-]
If they become self-governed does that mean England can stop giving them so many fucking handouts?

Scotland is like our version of Mexico.

They'll also run off with what oil you have in the sea.

Sorry, apologetic thumb for you.
User avatar #20 to #16 - stifflimb ONLINE (12/03/2013) [-]
Iceland is both yes and no, there is no official statement if it's a part of Scandinavia or not, but since such a large group of people on Iceland has their ancestor from Finland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden it's a little of personal opinion about it!
User avatar #29 to #20 - Nullifier (12/03/2013) [-]
Scandinavia: Denmark, Sweden, Norway.
Nordic: Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland
User avatar #25 to #20 - mrgusti (12/03/2013) [-]
you were talking about the Nordic nations in your comment
User avatar #15 to #5 - thebestpieever ONLINE (12/03/2013) [-]
Is there any change? As in... they would just call him a nordic and that's it, what is the point?
User avatar #6 to #5 - formidableguy (12/02/2013) [-]
lol, fair enough seems a bit random though as there isnt much of a connection.

Hope they dont leave the UK, wouldnt seem right
#7 to #6 - creatine (12/02/2013) [-]
Well there is the connection of culture. The similarities of art and such from 900-1100 or so. When the Vikings were alive and fighting to controll the British isles. That's the connection, but whatever

And they would still be a part of the British "Empire" they would just be self governed. Like Australia or Canada.
User avatar #8 to #7 - formidableguy (12/02/2013) [-]
yea they would be part of the commonwealth but they would be as British as Canada or Australia.

Would prefer all of the UK to be part of this Nordic collective. If Viking invasion is the connection haha, be awesome being part of the Nordic bloc
User avatar #14 to #8 - thebestpieever ONLINE (12/03/2013) [-]
Scotland did go to war agains't England allied with the Nordics, and lost but whatevs.
Also... the UK is very touchy. The popular sentiment is that all of the members save for England hate being a part of it but the political sentiment is that the best option economically and politically is keep on being part of it.
