In Decisive Vote, Scotland Rejects Independence, Sticks with the U.K.

Given a historic chance to go it alone as an independent nation, Scottish voters chose to stick with the United Kingdom following a campaign that was marked by extraordinary turnout and profound division.

Final results showed Friday that the “no” side won an overwhelming advantage, with a 55 percent majority compared to 45 percent for the “yes” camp. Unionist leaders proclaimed that Scotland had clearly voted to remain part of the United Kingdom. Supporters erupted in raucous celebration. http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/in-decisive-vote-scotland-rejects-independence-sticks-with-the-uk
