Scotland does have its own government and parliament.
The Scottish parliament is capable of overturning laws and bills passed by the government of the UK, as well as instating its own laws and bills for Scotland.
I too, would like Scotland to become independent.
You know why? Because the Scottish vote contributes about 100 Labour MPs to a parliament that the English have to follow, with no regional control.
We are at the whims of a country that has a population only twice that of Manchester.
Why should the Scottish be able to vote in a parliament they aren't even forced to actually follow, since they have their own government to control their own country?
Why are we English not properly represented because 5 million people in another country have a right to muscle in on our politics, and then claim they're being oppressed by the union?

"The Scottish parliament is capable of overturning laws and bills passed by the government of the UK, as well as instating its own laws and bills for Scotland."
No, it's capable of legislating for certain devolved matters, such as Healthcare or Education. Other matters, Reserved Matters, they have no part in - stuff like taxation or policy.
They can't overturn what was never implemented, they can just choose to not implement it.
"the Scottish vote contributes about 100 Labour MPs to a parliament that the English have to follow"
They contribute 59 MPs actually. In terms of representation, Wales is the most over-represented state in the UK, not Scotland: 40 MPs for a population of around 3 million (75,000 per MP).
Scotland has 90,000 per MP, England 98,000, and Northern Ireland over 100,000.
Your arguments are in favour of a devolved English Legislature, which I'm still amazed doesn't exist, less arguments in favour Scottish independence.
