The No Won?....NA... Democracy Lost.
Never has there been such a one sided view by the media or influenced by Politicians lies and deceit like we have seen in Scotland this past year.
We will remember each and every one of them.

A very comprehensive article, thank you.
However, it does overlook one point. In their agreements to form the Union, both New York and Virginia specifically stated that their membership was contingent on the Federal government adhering to the Constitution. If Virginia were to bring the matter up to the World Court as a contract dispute between two sovereign nations, I think they could easily prove that the Federal government has not upheld their end of the agreement. Since it would be a simple matter of a breech of contract, the contract could be rendered null and void.
Of course, the US government doesn't bother to follow laws that it doesn't like. The most likely result is that Virginia would become the Gaza or Tibet of the western hemisphere.

Best possible result for Cameron. Scotland stays in the Union and the other nations are to get devolved powers - thereby almost handing England to the Conservative Party, certainly for the foreseeable future. Devolved powers = bad news for Labour numbers at Westminster.
That aside, well done Scotland for turning out in such huge numbers and for making a decision.
