    Impossible to say .. I have no idea what areas were counted first (usually big cities where the no vote is likely higher)...we'll find out soon.

    Scotland votes 'No' to independence

    Scotland votes to stay in the United Kingdom and First Minister Alex Salmond accepts defeat but calls for a pledge of more devolved powers to be honoured.

    Scots reject independence, choosing instead security offered by UK/EU membership

    A majority of voters did not embrace Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond’s impassioned plea to launch a new nation, choosing instead the security offered by remaining in the U.K. with England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    45% of Scots are now subjected to a government they do not consent to , political slavery rules the day.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    ...hey, most of that 45% are OK with it as long as the checks keep showing up in the post.

    I'm thinking that voting day was more about the pub after voting than the voting.

    ^^^ This is the only reason people voted against separating from the UK. Hooked on the government teet! Scotland has tons of oil, gas and mineral wealth though. They probably wouldve been better off long term because they would be getting 100% of the revenue from those sources.
