As they go to the polls today, "the debate over Scotland’s constitutional future has polarized along socio-economic lines, with low-income and working-class Scots disproportionately in favour of a yes vote and wealthier Scots overwhelmingly against." For Jackie Anderson and many of her neighbours in North Glasgow, separation from the UK has less to do with national identity than gaining control over the economy and improving living conditions in one of Europe’s most unequal societies.
