It was Labour what won it!
Better Together campaign wins voting
favour keeping UK union in tact
The 307 year-old union between England and Scotland has been decided.
The choice in an independence referendum secured the union of Great Britain, where Scotland remains
a united part of. The Better Together campaign, fronted by Labour politicians, helped keep the United
Kingdom in union with Scotland, led by former Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling with
almost 54% to 46% favouring Independence. The Yes camp had been criticised for bombarding and
hounding respectful voters of the opposition and adding brutish campaigning. The No campaigners
had left the vote to be a mellow open field of democratic debate but intervened stronger when it was
feared many opposing voters where being abused for their opinion.
Businesses and economic investors threatened to pull out of Scotland and re-locate in England if a Yes vote was returned as a matter of consequence. Alex Salmond
was regarded as using this strategic measure to convince Yes voters of intimation and

A vast majority of male voters were in favour if independence at roughly 52% last week

Fears of uncertainty, economy, welfare and other key policies swayed the vote in No’s
favour. An unknown gamble to create empty history was foreseen by voters to establish
connection than isolation.
Last week leader of the united Kingdom David Cameron pledged further powers to Scotland,
many of his backbenchers in the Tory Party considered “a bribe.”
The turnout had 97% of voters register, establishing faith in a democratic electorate system
despite voters disengaged with politics as a whole. The results at 54.34% for No to the Yes
vote on 45.66% was not guaranteed but concluded to secure the victory by analyst experts
according to Sky News at 5am this morning. 23 regions counted with 9 yet to hear where the
Why vote for both or nothing on ballot? It means…
Votes were also discounted after those who turned out voted for both options on the ballot,
or they simply posted the paper with no vote marked. What people don’t realise is that
when you do this, you are officially sending a message that you are capable of voting
and want to but are making your message that both options are not good enough.
This is the message from the voters who post the decision and have taken the time to
go and vote but do not feel either side represents them and is a wake up call.
