Scotland Votes No

 

No: 2,000,000+

Yes: 1,600,000+

 

Alex Salmond resigns as First Minister of Scotland

 

Devolution (noun) / devolve (verb)

the transfer or delegation of power to a lower level, especially by central government to local or regional administration

 

The result has sparked debate and discussion about devolution of more powers to Scotland, and the other UK nations as well.
