Scottish nationalists rally for independence

Nationalists argue that Scotland, which has rich energy resources, would benefit if it seceded from UK.

    In less than a year, people in Scotland will vote on whether to secede from the rest of the UK.

    The ruling Scottish National Party has been pushing for independence saying the region, called the energy capital of Europe, has not got its share of profits.

    But the no to independence campaign, supported by all the main London parties, continues to stay ahead in the polls.
