Scottish Voting

I am a bit confused with all elections this year I think I have got three votes...E.U in or out? normal British general election? then this vote for independence and how this all combines together? Say I vote for the Tories in the general election and UKIP to get us out of Europe what the hell happens if I vote for independence?
Getting dizzy just thinking about it and my votes have to be in soon. Crazy

Re: Scottish Voting

There's no EU in or out vote - it's the EU MEP election on 22 May. On the same day local (council) elections will be held in England and Wales - not sure about Scotland.
The Scottish independence vote is on 18 September.

@7up I will say whatever I want, The moderators will decide whether Its fit for purpose or not. Thanks alanf and Foresee and Shutter. Seems like I am really confusing myself this year but I want to make the best out of the votes so have been learning as much about everything that I can.

Yeh but no but.... Salmond is the party for the hatred of everything English; except subsidies, banking bailouts and the pound. Which implies an independent Scotland will have no need for anti-English rhetoric and therefore, be redundant of the bonnie prince of the SNP. I suggest Scotland is destined to be ruled over by the Alexanders, Darlings, Browns or Blairs from the reborn New Scotts Labour party, who will promptly sign Scotland over to rule from the EU - for the subsidies.
