What was/is more devastating to the United Kingdom? American independence from Britain, Indian independence from Britain or potentially?
Scottish independence from Britain? Why have you chosen the way you have?

We rid ourselves of the burden of India, and gave them a six week deadline to prepare for it. They messed up of course, and set about killing a couple of million of each other splitting the place into Pakistan (East and West) and India.
I am not sure what the drawbacks (if any) of the loss of the American rebel colonies was, the Canadians seem happier without them. As for the Scots - a lot of us are REALLY sick of paying for that lot.
