Scotland Votes NO

So, there you have it; by a bigger margin than expected, Scotland has rejected becoming an independent state and Alex Salmond is resigning.

At the end of the day, Salmond failed to make a convincing case for independence. When your statements about currency and the EU are directly contradicted by key people on the other side... many people aren't going to vote for you.

This said 1.6 million did and they're still going to be in Scotland; their views need to be respected and included in discussions on the future structure of the still United Kingdom.
