Scotland says No to independence, The Government breathes a sigh of relief...

As one Scottish Politician pointed out, 'Just because some people said No, does Not mean that they want things to stay the way they are.'

Scotland now waits to see if/when the government will honour it's pledges.

 

Wales and Northern Ireland will be watching developments closely...

well in my opinion it's great when a government gives to people the chance to choose directly what they want.

would like to see the same thing happening here...

 Yeah, I agree. The average percentage of voters from the various counties/districts was incredible. An average of about 86% overall

First time I've seen that in any election or referendum here.

i also liked the voting process, people were happy together and those even who wanted independence were happy anywayz they didn't win :D It's nice. Also the other part - London promised for them more stuff, it's all nice:)

In a way, Scotland has won.

They will have more powers to run things the way they want to.

The no voters have probably been satisfied with the government's offers, and didn't feel the need to vote for independence.

Smiles all round probably. Only time will tell.

I think it's beneficial for all four Isle Nations to stay together... Scotland is a Welfare state at this moment, even with their newfound oil reserves. - It will take a couple years, if not a decade for those to have any real financial impact, enough to support it's own obligations.  Once Mother England cuts financial aid, I dunno if the people could handle the burden that would follow.  In my opinion this issue should be placed on the 'back-burner' and revisited at a time in the future where Scotland is more financially stable.

Yes, it will take some time.

While we're talking about oil though, you may be interested in this article from the Washington Post.

Some of the comments are quite interesting,
