Calvin Harris frustrated by lack of vote in Scottish referendum

DJ Calvin Harris feels left out of the debate on Scottish independence because he does not get to vote in the upcoming referendum.

Scots will go to the polls on 18 September (14) to decide whether they want the country to leave the U.K., but Harris, who grew up in Dumfries, is not able to vote as he no longer lives in Scotland.


The We Found Love hitmaker admits he feels frustrated watching from the outside, telling British radio station Free Radio, "It's annoying because I can't vote because I don't live in Scotland any more, so I am watching it from afar. I am just watching it and seeing it develop. Is it Scotland versus England now?... I see what they are saying - to have a country controlled by another country is kind of bizarre. They are saying we do have a lot of money, but I wonder if we do have enough money (to be independent)."
