Scot­land took long road to in­de­pen­dence vote

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

ED­IN­BURGH, Scot­land (AP) — On Cal­ton Hill, over­look­ing Ed­in­burgh, stands Scot­land’s Na­tional Mon­u­ment. A colon­nade of clas­si­cal stone pil­lars mod­eled on the Parthenon in Athens, it’s grand, in­spir­ing — and un­fin­ished, ever since the money to build it ran out two cen­turies ago.

It’s a fit­ting im­age for the coun­try as seen by in­de­pen­dence cam­paign­ers, who hope vot­ers will fin­ish Scot­land’s in­com­plete jour­ney to state­hood by back­ing sep­a­ra­tion from Bri­tain in a ref­er­en­dum on Thurs­day.
