Britain is one day away from a once-in-a-lifetime vote on Scottish independence that could break up the 307-year-old United Kingdom, splitting apart one of America’s key global allies. Polls suggest a Scottish split from the rest of Britain is a real possibility, sending Britain into its biggest constitutional upheaval since the Wars of Independence that led to the creation of the United States. Should Scotland be an independent country? How likely is that to happen? What would that mean to the rest of the world?
We'll answer those questions and whatever you want to know on Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET in a live chat on the NBC News Facebook page, hosted by NBC News writer/reporter Alastair Jamieson. Now based in London, Jamieson studied, lived and worked in Scotland for almost 15 years, including for The Scotsman and the Daily Record newspapers. He covered the 1997 Scottish Devolution Referendum and subsequent creation of the Scottish Parliament, and has written extensively for NBC News about Thursday's independence vote.
