    Scotland Rejects Referendum to Separate From the United Kingdom: Projections
    Sep. 18, 2014 11:59pm    Oliver Darcy  


    Scotland voted on Thursday not to separate from the United Kingdom, rejecting an initiative to become an independent state and end the country’s 307-year-old union with England, Sky News and the BBC projected late Thursday.

    Throughout the day, Scots turned out in record numbers to cast their ballots. More than 4 million individuals were registered to vote, including 16- and 17-year-olds, at the polls which closed at 10 p.m.

    Heading into the election, an Ipsos MORI poll suggested those in opposition to independence would ultimately edge out those in favor by a slim margin.

    A YouGov prediction also indicated a victory for no by 54 percent to 46 percent.

    Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson told the BBC she was confident the “silent majority” of Scots would deliver a No victory, but the Yes campaign said it was too early to predict the outcome.

    After polls closed, some No campaigners said they were confident they had swayed enough undecided voters to stave off independence. They may have been helped by a last-minute offer from Britain’s main political parties to give Scotland more powers if voters reject secession, and by fears about the future of Britain’s pensions and the National Health Service in an independent Scotland.

    Had the referendum passed, it would have triggered 18 months of negotiations with the British government over how to split. Scotland would have then gained independence on March 24, 2016.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron is scheduled to deliver an address about the country’s future Friday morning.
