People from all countries in the United Kingdom to vote on Scottish Independence

Being a taxpayer in the United Kingdom and considering the amount of money which flows from Whitehall over the border to Scotland. This is taken from the BBC website:

The basic facts are that Scotland accounts for 8.4% of the UK population, 8.3% of the UK's total output and 8.3% of the UK's non-oil tax revenues - but 9.2% of total UK public spending.

Scottish Executive figures for 2009-10 show that spending per capita in Scotland was £11,370, versus £10,320 for the UK. In other words, spending in Scotland was £1,030 - or 10% higher - per head of population than the UK average.

I would like a vote on Scottish Independence as I believe all UK taxpayers contribute to their society.
