Scotland - Votes NO on independence

  • It's 9 am in Scotland right now (4 am here) and I woke up just now to find out the final total. :)


    The final result in the referendum was 1,617,989 votes in favor of independence from the United Kingdom to 2,001,926 against.


    This means the pro union camp won by a margin of just over 10%, with 55.25% of the vote to 44.65% which was a much wider gap than than opinion polls in the final days leading up to the vote had suggested.


    So the NO vote officially has won.

  • Well, I just hope they can move forward now and resolve the underlying issues that lead to Scotland wanting to be independent in the first place ;)

    England promised Scotland more direct control and power if they voted, no. To exactly what extent is still unknown.
