Overall so far YES at 41% , NO at 59%

I think we can say it's over, I was hoping for Scotland to gain independence too. Oh well.

Sky has the overall total so far as 59.17% No and 40.83 Yes. Of course it is too early to make much of that. It doesn't really constitute a trend, I don't think.

I think if one of the larger centers like Edinburgh or Glasgow goes No, that would be a different thing. One of the commentators was saying that there was a feeling among some observers in Edinburgh that it might go as high as 60% in that area for the No. That would be a trend, for me.

The people have spoken.

Now it is the time to see what they said.

Yes or No, my best thoughts for a peaceful result, regardless.

In fairness, we have only seen a small fraction of the votes so far...yes it doesn't look good, but once the larger areas start coming in, then we will get a better idea.

If you 're talking about the Scottish nationalists, there's always the minority looking for any excuse to start a riot. I think tomorrow night some YES voters will be out on the streets.

I have been through this twice. You've got to look at it like "WE" won. All Scots. Whatever the outcome. Animosity is a nasty road. Been there. Don't do it.

There's probably going to be a lot of this, people were even trying to sell their votes on eBay.


That has to be the saddest thing I've read all week. The people of Scotland have a choice: freedom and economic uncertainty, or tie your fortunes to the United Kingdom with all that entails. To me, it's a no brainer, but I can understand the view from the other side.

But to say, "I don't care, just give me a few bucks and I'll vote whatever you want." :insert shaking head emoticon here:

To those people, I would quote Samuel Adams:

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

After a few pints of Tennents / McEwans and several large scotches, I expect there probably will be bloodshed, I just hope resident English folks have the sense to stay in tomorrow night.

Thing is what many of you forget is we in the uk consider ourselves as Great British and that is the union of our great countries.
I may wake up with a part of me ripped out.
If they vote yes it will effect us all and not for the better.
Oh but the good thing about a yes vote we get to hang cameron
.

Tis a shame you had only two stars before I showed up.
What need have we for an election to get the sisal twisting'?
I know-- it 's a good excuse though.
I fear only that no matter what the vote they will win.
But it's not just about the money and the oil this time.

Did anyone else see Micheal Gove accidentially say England when he meant to say UK? I'm English bty but that was pretty emaressing.

Not to be too conspiratorial or jinxy, because it's pretty damn historical and exciting ...but, if it passes, I wonder what the world-wide implications will be. Will other places say "screw this "? For instance, Texas, LoL? Or, more seriously, places that have historically bucked the Crown or disputed territories like the Falklands?
