The ‘No’ Vote and What it Means for Scotland


No Vote

As many of you know, Scotland has decided to remain a part of the United Kingdom. In the end, the vote was 55% No and 45% Yes. So what now? Right after the vote there were some riots in places such as Glasgow. Also, the First Minister of Scotland resigned. There is supposed to be further devolution of power, but no change is fast. A few signs and activists linger in the streets. Divided sides are in the process of reuniting. Life continues.
