2014 Scottish independence referendum David Cameron Global Times

Global Times editorial

9 Sep, 2014

The Chinese Global Times newspaper publishes an editorial warning against the risks of Scottish independence to the UK:

If Scotland gains independence, the UK will descend from a first-class country to a second-rate one, which will once again break the balance within Europe. And its consequence may even wield influence upon international geopolitics. The UK will become the biggest loser if such a scenario transpires. The elite of London have begun to feel panicked due to these potential risks and no longer wear an expression of pride for delivering the fate of Scotland to more than 5 million people through the vote on independence.

Cameron also stands to lose:

If Scottish independence happens, Cameron will likely become a ‘sinner’ of history for the UK.
