United Kingdom: Scotland votes “NO” to independence

BBC News

Scotland has voted to stay in the United Kingdom after rejecting independence.

With 30 out of the country’s 32 council areas having declared after Thursday’s vote, the “No” side has an unassailable lead of 1,877,252 votes to 1,512,688.

The winning total needed was 1,852,828. Nationally, the margin of victory is about 55% to 45%.

The vote is the culmination of a two-year campaign. Talks will now begin on devolving more powers to Scotland.

This margin of victory is some three points greater than that anticipated by the final opinion polls.
