Scotland stays in the UK. The vote results are now official.
Scotland has voted and the majority wants to stay in the UK. 55.3% said no to the Scottish Independence and 44.7% voted yes. This the official result.
This was an historic vote after Scotland joined the UK in 1707. It looks like at the last minute voters decided that it is better to stay in the UK than to have to deal with a lot of uncertainties. See below a chart courtesy of The Guardian. The voter turn-out was 84.5%, which is a new record in the United Kingdom.
David Cameron just addressed the nation saying: “The people of Scotland have spoken and it is a clear result. They have kept our country of four nations together and like millions of other people I am delighted.”
