Scotland is going to vote on their independence this Thursday, and John Oliver lays out what the issues at play are.

Of course, it's not as simple as yes or no, there are plenty of things to consider, from history and culture to financial implications and what will realistically happen if they do leave the United Kingdom.

While the polls are very close, John Oliver is hoping that he, as an Englishman, can make a grand gesture that will prove to Scotland that they really do want them to stay, and do the job that David Cameron should be doing but seems to be making a balls of.

All well and good, but we still like Limmy's take on the whole thing from earlier this year.
