    And that ignorant, offensive, rant sums up exactly why the YES campaign failed  

    Good god. What a load of boarish spiteful bile from bad losers has been posted during the night. I actually dread to think how Scotland would be run if this is representative of how the yes vote behav

    I'm disappointed in the lack of grace shown by some across the net in accepting this No vote. A complete lack of any empathy and understanding as to why fellow Scots didn't vote Yes.   I personally

    mullender83, you have no idea about how election counts proceed and how such early count samples are achieved.

    Clearly neither do some here that had a certain win only a few hours ago..and dismissed the silent vote I questioned a couple of days ago as being ludicrous. bed time for me anyway I could quote all night but the results enough I feel. I can sleep well now.

    Ach well its a bit disappointing to wake up and see that Scots would rather be subservient dogs.

    They will reep the Westminster whirlwind now.

    Sad that clearly we're a region of liars also.

    Salmond must resign now and I expect t the SNP to take up seats in the Lords.

    Eye the promises of more powers will be swiftly forgotten. I did think the Scots would go for it. I guess fear of change swung the vote in the end.

    Westminster might like to think so, but they will not be forgotten here. There will be the energy of YES Scotland and very sizeable portion of no voters behind the demand for very substantial constitutional change.

    It should be noted that Westminster can not railroad plans through that are unacceptable to the Scottish Parliament, the Scotland Act requires that Holyrood consents to such changes.

    I don't think there is any chance they will be forgotten. The rest of us owe a big thank you to the Scottish people for shaking up the complacent mob in Westminster and forced some future major constitutional change. On this I don't think they have a choice.

    Pretty much game over now with Edinburgh voting 61:39% in favour of no and Aberdeenshire voting 60:40% in favour of no. Just 3 councils left.

     

    We need to move on from this and unite (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) to fight back against the status quo. A change will still happen and hopefully it benefit everyone and not just Scotland. 

     

    With the turnout at near 85%, this referendum was a big success for democracy and British politics.

    Subservient in that they prefer to be ruled over by a different country. Dogs have masters too don't they?

    A region in that they have voted against Scotland being a country.

    Liars, as solid SNP areas have voted No in big numbers.

    PARCEL O' ROGUES

    Fareweel to a' our Scottish fame,
    Fareweel to ancient glory,
    Fareweel evan tae the Scottish name
    Sae famed in martial story !
    Now Sark rins o'er the Solway sands
    And Tweed rins tae the ocean,
    To mark where England's province stands
    Such a parcel of rogues in a nation.


    What force or guile could not subdue,
    Thro' mony warlike ages,
    Is wrought now by a coward few
    For hireling traitor wages;
    The English steel we could distain
    Secure in valours station,
    But English gold has been our bane,
    Such a parcel of rogues in a nation.

    Oh, would ere I had seen the day
    That treason thus could sell us,
    My auld gray head had lien in clay
    Wi' Bruce and loyal Wallace,
    But pith and power to my last hour
    I'll mak' this declaration -
    We're bought and sold for English gold,
    Such a parcel of rogues in a nation.

    Official. Scotland votes to be dependent on somewhere else.

    Incredible how one rogue poll, was it one?, to cause a panic and to make constitutional promises at a whim.

    The constitution was already on a rack, Gordon Brown et al increased the tension for sake of the Union.

    They now need to sort this out...NOW!

    In the same way any couple are dependent on each other.

    A poor analogy, you are assuming the couple treat each other the same.

    This is like a battered wife coming back for more punishment.

    Your right. The Unionists will be kicking themselves that they offered more powers, however they will soon wangle there way out of it.

    That's no better as you are assuming that the people of England, Wales and Northern Ireland are the ones giving out the beating and not just Westminster.

     

    Whilst most stories will run on how a devolution pact won the day for no side. Salmond blew it, by being evasive and stubborn on fundamental aspects of independence, he exposed himself as being no better than the current crop at Westminster.

    Scotland decides to continue being a region of England. Never again can we blame the people of England when it goes wrong up here in the future. Some truly selfish, gullible and cringe-worthy people just made foodbanks a permanent fixture. Hope you are proud of yourselves.

    To my fellow scots. I appreciate there is a lot of anger and hurt at the moment. We must keep the heid and carry on. This is one battle lost on the political field , the war continues.

     

    I am disappointed but massively heartened by the amount of support independance has in scotland.  It will be interesting to see the breakdown , when this is all over , of our fellow scots who kept us in this unequal union and why. To try and address their issues with independance.

     

    Next step , eradicating new labour politicians from representing us at westminster and replacing them with the snp or other indie politicians. This isnt over by a long shot , it carrys on .

     

    We only have to get it right once. Westminster have to get it right everytime!!!!!!

     

    We still have the scottish parliament , we still have a popular snp and the issue of independance isnt going away. A shallow hollow victory for no and their fear mongering.

     

    So proud of the majority of my fellow scots. Regroup and keep fighting.

    Does the battered wife need permission from the husband for a divorce?
