Not having a vote on the matter, I didn't pay very close attention to the campaigns at the time, but I seem to remember economics being a key factor. I think one of the reasons the independence movement failed to win was that they could not convince the electorate that there would be financial benefits. So that was the source of my original statement. It was not my intention to be fallacious or misleading. Having reflected on it, as indicated in a previous post I accept that a more accurate statement would be "the 2014 Scottish independence referendum suggested Scotland might need England more than vice versa".
