3. If the Scots want their own news and programs then a) do you care enough to
deny it to them? and b) what are your reasons for doing it?

The UK is in general blanketed with English news; why not let the rest of the
country have a crack? It's not as if they're going to either force you to watch it
if you don't want to or prevent you from watching it if you do.

But meanwhile, I'll be paying for it through my licence fee.

It's not free. It won't even come cheap. The question is whether I want to pay for
it if I'll get no benefit.

And the answer to that is generally 'no'.
