Scotland stays in UK, but Britain faces change

Scotland stays in UK, but Britain faces change | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

When 3.6 million Scots voted on Thursday on whether to leave or stay within the United Kingdom, they were answering one simple question: Should Scotland be an independent country?


But for a time some politicians on both sides of the debate wanted to include a third choice on the ballot: maximum devolution of powers to Scotland within Britain, or so-called devo-max.

Scotland: What the future holds | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

Whatever the outcome, there is no chance that the independence movement will fade away any time soon. For those fired by the dream of full secession, any form of “devo-max” will never be enough. Unless this fragile post-referendum situation is handled very delicately, in fact, fraught haggling and finger-pointing between politicians in Edinburgh and London will rouse nationalist fervour anew.

UK preserved as Scots say NO to independence

UK preserved as Scots say NO to independence | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it
The Scots have spoken, opting to keep the United Kingdom intact after voting 55.3% to 44.7% in favor of maintaining the ancient Union, a much better result than was feared in recent weeks. The news restores calm to the jittery markets, while Prime Minister David Cameron can now shake off the anxiety and get down to keeping his promises of granting Scotland greater powers of devolution, which in itself looks certain to rock the constitution of the UK.
