WASHINGTON — The United Kingdom, scrambling to appease Scotland during the Scots’ movement to declare independence, said it could guarantee high levels of state funding to Scotland.
Reuters reported Scotland could also gain concessions such as greater control over healthcare spending as a part of the infamous National Health Service (NHS) to help stop Scottish voters from voting for independence.
The vote takes place on September 18th and could split the United Kingdom. Polls show that the race is too close to call, which has politicians like British Prime Minister David Cameron scrambling for options and concessions to the Scots.
The current offer was introduced by former Labour Party Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who was succeeded by Cameron and his Conservative (Tory) Party. The leaders of the country’s major parties, Cameron, Labour leader Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg, offered the agreement and it was printed in Scotland’s Daily Record newspaper.
Cameron warned Scotland that if they do declare independence in their Thursday vote, it will be a painful separation, but could cost Cameron his job.
