Scottish Independence?

People can have different opinions, but these are facts from the Scottish Government’s website:

– Scotland = 7% fiscal deficit (highest in Europe), UK = 1.1%
– Scotland generates about £300 per head less than rUK and spends about £1600 more
– The Scottish deficit is almost 600% higher than the UK’s which means Scotland would have to grow 600% faster than it is growing now to be in the same fiscal position as it is in the UK now. What’s the chance of this happening? (it’s unachievable even for emerging economies like China)
