Scotland has had its own Parliament since 1999 (I think that was the date) and of course it did have a Parliament before the creation of Great Britain in 1707. It was not as highly developed as the English Parliament of the time, though.

I do wonder if Scotland can stand alone, especially economically. Tourism and whisky exports will not pay back English, Northern Irish and Welsh taxpayers towards the billions given to bail out the Royal Bank of Scotland.
