Could Cameron go the way of Lord North?

September 8th, 2014
03:35 PM ET

In ten days, Scotland holds a referendum on independence; if the 'yes' campaign wins, some say it would be hard for Cameron to stay on as Prime Minister, having presided over the breakup of the United Kingdom.

Could he face the same fate as Lord North, who in 1782, was forced from office after he lost the American Colonies?

Christiane Amanpour has the story.

    Not the PM's fault at all if the Scots want their own country.

    Hi Christian/CNN it is good for a change to hear a compliant from an Englishman about somebody drawing a border between England and Scotland. The usual story was the British doing all sort of mess with artificial borders in the world previously. It is like what goes around comes around.

    Interesting discussion by the 2 Scott's when one comments on Somerset floods. shame he got the description wrong referring to the Fenns which are no where near Somerset. I think the term he needed was the Levels

    Not if the "YES" wins, but when the people of Scotland vote YES to Independence then all three major parties in the England (LibDems, Tory and NewLabour) will all have to take responsibility. As PM Cameron should be forced out but the other two parties as "better together" have failed to show the people of Scotland and the rest of the UK that Westminster and their Lobbyists still work for the common man/ woman.

    UKIP, misogyny, racism and intolerance to diversity all push the fair minded people of Scotland to choose a divorce. The Scottish people love being part of the UK but the abuse has gone on to long. Who cares about the pound sterling, finances, oil and the military. If an abused woman came to you ask if she should divorce her partner would your first words be, "well can you afford it" and follow it with " well there will be no going back". No. You would say LEAVE and have a better life, free from the hatred.

    The Independence debate is bigger than a financial one it is a spiritual debate. People of Scotland be confident you can have a better future. Who cares what happens to Cameron!

    Brits have destroyed civilizations after civilizations and are illegally occupying major countries in the World. They've happily feasted on the riches of many countries which they have looted and plundered for centuries on the principles of Divide and rule. Their sinister greed for power, resources and cheap labor have divided many nations and created many nations. Now Cameron is saying don't rip our families. Karma is a big bit@h..and its true. Payback time GOD style.

    @AAA .. There are a lot of countries out there that have done terrible things in the past so don't kid yourself. Brits may have done bad things in their history but they have also done many great things. So everyone should just hate Brits for historic events hundreds of years ago because that's the only right thing to do.... Really do you think the current generation are to blame for all that? how backward thinking you are. Very sad for all the hatred in this world today...

    @Bernard Muhwezi So what. If folk wan't there own country why stop ehm. Its not like you are loosing anything yourself do you? If the Spain basks wan't there own country let them have it, if the Scots or North Irish wan't it let them have it AND let them stay in the EU. A piece of land and stupid primitive feelings of patriotic pride have already killed way to many innocent people don't you think?.
