4 thoughts on “Will we be waving farewell to Scotland tomorrow?

    1. Let me say first of all that i enjoyed your genealogy blog. Then when I saw this post, I knew I had to reblog. Scotland is so much a part of our world’s history, it would be hard to see it go down. We have friends there and friends from there too.

      One friend, a Galloway, said this, “Guess you know that the No’s won back in Sept. The young people were very disappointed and there were riots in Glasgow for a few days after the vote. Some articles were written that the voting was rigged. I don’t know if it was or not. I expect they will vote again in a few years.”

      1. Thank you very much! I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if there is another vote in some years, but I found it very interesting that only three districts had majority yes votes. As for vote rigging, well I understand there was some postal vote sample counting and there is some talk that these numbers were used to try and understand / predict voting but I’ve not read too much about it. I think the real test is whether the government delivers on its promises to devolve more powers to Scotland.

I would love to hear from you.
