Scotland said it’s a hard word News

Scotland.

At the last referendum the majority of Scots said “no”.

The vote against independence means, above all, that the 307-year Union survives. It therefore means that the UK remains a G7 economic power and a member of the UN security council.

It means Scotland will get more devolution. It means David Cameron will not be forced out. It means any Ed Miliband – led government elected next May has the chance to serve a full term, not find itself without a majority in 2016, when the Scots would have left.

It means the pollsters got it right, Madrid will sleep a little more easily, and it means the banks will open on Friday morning as usual.
