Big game changers still to come.

Edit includes Glasgow. The result wasn't big enough. The UK has survived with 100% certainty.

YES votes 200,000 votes behind. Even with Edinburgh, it's basically over. We expect Edinburgh to vote NO overall anyway.

Much respect to any Scottish person who voted no. Keeping the union together is incredibly important, at least for us Northern English people who typically vote labour/liberal.

Frustrated with Westminster? We are to, breaking away from the union was never going to be a way to solve your issues.
The people that voted yes need to keep politically active to fight Scotland's corner but don't break the union in the process, break conservatism.

Then shouldn't you be more concerned about the injustices in your own country, rather than being concerned if Scotland becomes independent or not ?

you fallaciously presume that the injustice of one person outweighs the injustice of another based solely on geographic location.

I'm not an expert on UK politics but it seems to me that either vote is ultimately in Scotlands interest. If they gained independence that's great for them, but in giving the people a reason to vote no the parliament had to make several concessions to Scotland which ultimately leaves them in a better position tomorrow than they were in today.

A bunch of lying politicians that are not going to deliver on their promises.

And as per usual, the voters fell for it (again), hook line and sinker.

Well that is one thing that would be true for both sides.

Can you stop sobbing and look at the positives of this referendum - when have so many Scottish people been so politically active? How many will remain politically active?
I'm sure many scots will stay tuned to find out what's on the table. Something is better than nothing.

Not really anything to celebrate, now we have suffer under a Labour government come next general election.


That also means we lose our referendum on the EU...

I am mad people.

The media hyped this up rather big time.

As if the 'world was ending'.

And they rejected independence ?

Meh.

That is always possible, but it will severely damage English credibility if they reneg, and lead to some major consequences in the future. Rather than say they won't deliver on promises (these promises are signed documents correct?) why not give them a chance to follow through first.
