Corporate Affairs Manager Samantha Bartholomew, 36, poses in her living room in London September 12, 2014. Bartholomew said "I'm incredibly proud to be Scottish. I think Scotland is an amazing country with a very strong national identity and I think by being part of the union it gets the best of both worlds. Therefore I think Scotland should vote no. That comes with the caveat that if I was currently living in Scotland and had a vote, it would be a very difficult decision to make and it's possible I would be swayed by the Yes campaign. In some ways I wonder if Scotland should just throw caution to the wind and go for it ... Whatever the outcome of the vote, I hope to move back to Scotland with my family one day. My gut feeling at the moment is NO!"" Photo: Reuters/Suzanne Plunkett
