There's not been much chat about the Scottish referendum in the Sinosphere. On the other hand, since it's a non-controversial issue over there what chat there has been has gone unharmonized. Roundup over here. Excerpt:
"Back when they were obstructing Hong Kong's return, I bet they didn't think it would come to this," one user laughed, apparently referring to late former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's negotiations with the Chinese over British divestiture of the colony. Another wrote that the U.K. "has followed behind America's ass advocating democracy, ultimately trying in vain to split other nations." Now, the user concluded, "It's coming back in your face."
Point out to a Chinese citizen that China was never technically colonized and you're likely to get the reply along the lines of 'we weren't the slave of one country, but the slave of all of them', which is why unity as a theme tends to resonate beyond official propaganda. In this context a country apparently in the process of officially dismantling itself while under no external duress at all is just baffling. Mind you, it's a bit puzzling to me here in Manchester.
More generally, I wonder what the overall political risk factor is in regard to a country which suddenly seems to be on the brink of falling apart for no apparent reason. Even with the best will in the world you'd be a bit nervous about its basic functioning, in the same way you'd be nervous about driving through a neighborhood where gigantic sinkholes suddenly appear in the middle of the road.
Taiwan, of course, is entirely behind the Yes campaign. Or at least their animators are.
