Scottish Referendum: Scotland Votes No to Independence
Scotland has voted to stay in the United Kingdom after voters decisively rejected independence.
With 31 out of the country’s 32 council areas having declared after Thursday’s vote, the ‘No’ side has an unassailable lead of 1,914,187 votes to 1,539,920.
The winning total needed was 1,852,828. Nationally, the margin of victory is about 55% to 45%.
Would have been interesting to have an important new country in Europe, but the Scots decided to play it safe.
