Scottish Independence, the aftermath.


Some interesting thoughts. I fancied a Yes vote, not because I believe I have any right to have a say in the matter, but as a historian I welcome change and I would have been interested to see Scotland develop independently. Hopefully the surge in political participation created by the referendum will live on, and the 80something% turnout will not be a one off event!
