Scottish independence: could the UK break up in 2014?

Salmond's Nationalist Party wants Scotland to split from the rest of the UK, arguing that Scots would be better off thanks to the country's oil reserves. Salmond has managed to get Westminster to agree to a referendum in 2014, and to allow 16- and 17-year-olds to have their say. But is independence what Scots really want?
