Well, I can only see things from my own perspective.
If it came to a straight choice between England leaving Scotland and England leaving Europe I'd vote for leaving Scotland.

England to leave Scotland where exactly? Tesco's car park? England isn't in Scotland any more than Scotland is in England. Basic Geography here. England isn't some occupying army within Scotland which can up sticks and leave. The Treaty of Union was agreed on 22 July 1706 between two seperate states with seperate legislatures (we still operate under Scots Law North of the Wall). If England wants to gain its Independence and leave the Union, then the People of England would have to vote for that. They seem to have no appetite for it at all.

When and if the People of Scotland decide to leave the Union then that will be when Scotland resumes its independence as a nation state outside of "Great Britain" with its own fully functioning parliament and legislature. Scotland will still be exactly where it was before and so will England. Nobody is going anywhere.
