Groundskeeper Willie picks his side on the Scottish Independence debate

With the Scottish Independence referendum taking place next Thursday famous Scots from all over the world have been having the their say on the debate.

As the polls suggest the vote is too close to call The Simpsons most famous Scottish resident has decided to join the calls for a ‘Yes’ vote.

Willie emigrated to Springfield from Scotland and the upcoming referendum has him pining for a return to his homeland.

He believes both sides of the debate have valid points – “be it the right one or the obviously wrong one!”

Willie does seem incredibly well informed on the issue of Scotland’s rich oil reserves for someone who lives in a shack.

The popular character proclaims Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond a safe choice to lead a potentially new independent Scotland, however he adds if Scots are looking for a new leader in the vein of “William Wallace or Andy Murray” then look no further then Willie himself.

‘Yes’ or ‘No’, Groundskeeper Willie will always be one of our most favourite Scottish people.
