Scotland votes to remain with United Kingdom

Scotland has voted, and the people have decided by a vote of 55% – 45% to continue the country’s 307 year history with England. The “no” votes win.

From ABC News:

While voters in Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city, voted in favor of independence, voters in the capital of Edinburgh and the country’s oil center of Aberdeen cast their ballots Thursday against it, keeping Scotland in the union with England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

“I accept that verdict of the people, and I call on all of Scotland to follow suit, and accepting the democratic verdict of the people of Scotland,” Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond said from Edinburgh.
