Scotland to remain with UK

Scotland to remain with UK

Scottish voters  resoundingly rejected independence, deciding to remain part of the United Kingdom after a historic referendum that shook the country to its core.

The decision prevented the rupture of a 307-year union with England, bringing a huge sigh of relief to Britain’s political establishment, including Prime Minister David Cameron, who faced calls for his resignation if Scotland had broken away.

The vote on Thursday 55 percent against independence to 45 percent in favour saw an unprecedented turnout of just under 85 percent.
