“UK Land Area = 0.16% of the world, so we should take 1,517 based on area
UK Population = 0.9% of the world, so we should take 8,286 based on population
UK GDP = 2.8% of the world, so we should take 25,833 based on wealth

Of course, your figures do not cover the illegals: those who never applied or those who apllied, were denied and ran.

PS: if Scotland flounces off on their own, we would need to cut the UK intake by 32% based on land area - or by 8.5% based on population or wealth”

Norsefox on Aug 19, 2014 at 05:38:26

“I feel that the cut off should be based on the land mass as per the BBC weather map - not 'actual' geographic areas.”

So we're taking fewer than we can afford, then? Thanks for that.”

“True, they could, just as many countries use the US dollar: British Virgin Islands
Ecuador, El Salvador, the Marshall Islands, the FSM and Palau.

Scotland could buy pounds from the UK, they just could not print them.

The Scottish pound would probably no longer be legal tender, at least outside of Scotland. Wthin Scotland it might survive as a kind of scrip.”

Scots Wha Hae on Aug 18, 2014 at 12:17:22

“Firstly there is no concept of 'legal tender' in Scotland. First mistake.

Secondly it would not be a 'Scottish Pound' since it would be the same currency as used by the rest of the UK. Second mistake.”
