Oh Scotland. You had a chance to get away from this madness.
Scotland isn't governed by the City of London, nor is London governed by the City of London either. Scotland is governed by the Scottish Parliament, then the UK parliament (where Scotland has a powerful voice) and then the European Union (where nobody but undemocratically selected people have absurd amount of powers - The 'no' voters still wanted to be part of the EU mind you).
Sure, that's a given. But England in general seems to be really tripping when it comes to internet regulation, both local and national scale. Disassociating from this whole madness, even if it doesn't directly affect them, seems like a good idea.
As for EU, I have a bit different view on it, but at least they seem to have a good view on end-user rights, and actively try to act in their interests. Not in all cases of course, but in many.
