SCOTLAND- In a historical vote that has been raging on in the news for weeks, the people of Scotland voted NO last night for the concept of an independent Scotland; something many Scots have been fighting for since the time of William Wallace.
According to the polls, the votes were very close with No voters securing 55% of the vote and Yes voters establishing 45% of the vote. Many recognized names watched the turn out over the news, including the Her Majesty the Queen of England, J.K. Rowling and Alan Cumming.
While the vote was one of great accomplishment and peace in Great Brattain, it was not void of some violence and chaos. Some voters were livid, claiming that fraud had been committed in Glasgow, as they arrived to hand in their votes, only to be told that they had already voted. So far, the media has confirmed that there have been at least 10 allegations of fraud in Glasgow alone. Other incidences included the arrest of a former St. Helens councillor for assault.
Over two million voters opted for No, while over one million believed an independent Scotland was best. The British Prime minister David Cameron congratulated Glasgow on the show of support, and it is said that the Queen watched the results and will be making a statement later today.
After the historic vote trampled his campaign, Alex Salmond retreated to his home, where according to sources, it was cloaked in darkness. It is not said what will become of Mr. Salmond career after this, but Prime Minister Cameron is focused on the future and the English opinion on future laws.
