Re: Och Aye the NO

Turnout so far is between 75% (Glasgow) and 91% (East Dunbartonshire & East Renfrewshire)

Average 84%

Preferring BBC TV News Coverage.

Did David Cameron give too much away pre Election ?
The closeness of the Vote is raising questions as to how much Scotland will be divisive after the Referendum.

Latest: Inverclyde is extremely close        NO 50.1%,  YES 49.9%    87% turnout

Re: Och Aye the NO

Alex Salmond is to step down as first minister of Scotland after voters decisively rejected independence.

Statement includes:
I believe that in this new exciting situation, redolent with possibility, party, parliament and country would benefit from new leadership.
Therefore I have told the National Secretary of the SNP that I will not accept nomination to be a candidate for leader at the Annual Conference in Perth on 13th-15th November.
After the membership ballot I will stand down as First Minister to allow the new leader to be elected by due Parliamentary process.
Until then I will continue to serve as First Minister. After that I will continue to offer to serve as Member of the Scottish Parliament for Aberdeenshire East.
