Maybe we are the bugs... and the rest of the animal kingdom (AK) should band together to get rid of us to fuck.
I vote we should secede from the AK and prepare a preemptive strike against our possible future oppressors.

Don't make it sound like we voted NO because we're feckless...

Scotland voting NO was an active decision. An active decision that values that union and wants to use the framework of the union to build a better nation.

And by nation I mean the UNITED KINGDOM

Kind of disappointed. I guess I would have liked to see an independent Scotland going its own way and getting it right for its people.

I doubt there'd be 85% turnout for any vote in England. That impressed me.
A slight majority of a statistically worthless sample size agree.

I was a bit disappointed with the 75%-odd in Glasgow. I would've expected more there.

Anyone know the turnout in Edinburgh?

84% for Edinburgh. Much higher than Glasgow, I'm surprised at that.

lol, I'm a Scottish myself.

Loads of people i've spoke to read about etc have said they voted no because its fine the way it is. Others have said they want a change and want us to have more decisions. Pretty much everyone I spoke to today were disappointed with it and are wanting to see what happens with all these promises that were made. It would have been good to see how it would turn out. Whether it or not ti turned out to be a mistake or not.

I wouldn't be too surprised if at some stage in the future this raises its head again. 85% is a very very good turn out, but it wasn't a particularly high majority vote.

Half of Scotland's population (okay that's a vast exaggeration) are idiots who believe/believed voting yes meant you were no longer a protestant and that you love the pope.

I kid you not.
That is not a joke, I know one guy that prefers to wear England footy tops as he's British and by being British wearing a Scotland top is in breach of his Britishness, I shit you not. He's also a catholic (or cathlicks as he would say) hating bigot who as well as hating "cathlicks" thinks that black people all look alike and that these filthy Poles are stealing all our jobs. And he's just a mild example of the Orange fuckwits that blight my country.

I honestly believe that the majority of balanced rational folks voted yes with the no camp being scared into a no, having some misguided belief that to be protestant is to be British or they have money tied up in London.

This will come again in the next 15 years or so, you can't have 45% of your population unhappy at at a London-centric government.

So if you did get another vote in 15 years, and it was a Yes that time, would you then have another vote in another 15 years? I doubt it.
