Scottish referendum splits public opinion

On September 18th voters in Scotland will vote in a referendum to decide whether they should split from the United Kingdom and become independent. Recent polls have shown that a majority favor a no vote vote although the campaign on both sides of the issue is heating up. Edward Luce, the Washington columnist for the Financial Times joins us to discuss the arguments for and against Scottish independence.
