    Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has announced the date for the country's independence referendum. It's to be held on September 18 next year. That will be when Scotland's five million people will have the chance to decide on whether to leave the United Kingdom. Opinion polls put support for a split at just 30 per cent.
