Reunited Kingdom! - Scotland says NO to Independence from United Kingdom.

I have been following the Scottish Independence referendum campaign from the very beginning. I somehow did not want Scotland to sever its centuries old relation with the United Kingdom, so I was with the “Better Together Campaign”.
The referendum on whether Scotland should be an Independent Country took place yesterday, Thursday 18th September 2014, and the result is out today, that is on 19th September! - Scotland has rejected Independence from the UK in a historic vote with an unprecedented turnout. The Scots voted by a margin of 55% - 45% to stay part of the United Kingdom. This is a momentous day not only for Scotland but for the United Kingdom as a whole. And of course to people like me.
Hope the Independence debate will now be closed forever and the United Kingdom will remain united.
