After months of campaigning for independence, Scotland voters have decided to remain united to the United Kingdom.  Prime Minister David Cameron was extremely happy with the decision. Many feared the separation would cause dire consequences for both territories, especially economically.

Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister had urged Scotland voters to vote for independence.  They did vote, but were on the losing side.  Over 86% of voters turned out to vote with 123,927 for “Yes” and 194,628 “No” votes, making it one of the largest turnouts.

The idea of having Scotland break away from the United Kingdom was seen as a push in the right direction. Supporters of this idea felt they needed to be independent. However, the majority of voters felt this change would have been too much for the territories and decided to leave well enough alone, so to speak.  Some claim voter fraud was involved see: https://t.co/ej5QDIuUky

In my opinion, the idea of independence was not a bad idea. I know of a very powerful nation today who was once under the United Kingdom (the super power of the time) and broke away by force defeating Britain’s powerful armies and replacing it by becoming the world’s super power: the good old United States of America! 🙂

Let us pray for the United Kingdom and its territories that they find ways to share power and

responsibility.
