Scotland wants internet independence -

A push for domain name .SCOT has been backed by the Scottish parliament.

Scotland, formerly home to Picts, a former colony of Norway, and hedged in by the Romans to keep them out, has asked England to support its bid, according to the BBC.

ICANN, which regulates such affairs, will accept such submissions and there's a body called the Dot Scot Registry (DSR) which will push for a top level domain.

Scotland, heavily depopulated by the Highland Clearances, wants better broadband access than it's got at the moment.

King James VI of Scotland, a fervent anti-smoker, became King James I of England and then unity was pushed through against the wishes of the common man and his dog.

Now, some in Scotland are seeking independence, but the East Lothian question still remains unresolved.
