What we’ve learned from the Scottish referendum

Some 87% of Scottish voters came out to make their voice heard. This is the highest turnout for any vote since 1951.

It was a narrow victory for the “No” camp, but the closeness of the result has spooked Westminster into action, handling over more powers and also hopefully making the Government look at England and other parts of the UK too.

The high turnout, when compared to a normal General Election, is something that should worry politicians in London the most. The current political leaders and their party’s don’t seem to be stirring up the emotions or offering anything different, so less people come out to vote.
