'Subdued'

The atmosphere at this #indyref #yes party is now subdued to say the least. They'd expected more from Clacks and W Isles

Reading the live feed of the Guardian - youths getting a little rowdy at 3:30 am in Glasgow (who knew?), Scots still drinking in pubs at this hour (dear Lord!), and claims of fraudulent county (just like home!)

Well, I'm off to bed. I'm not sure who will be sorrier tomorrow, Salmond or the guys still drinking....

I just have to say how deeply impressed I am by the nearly 90% voter turnout. Incredible! On C-SPAN, it looks like 1/3 of the results are in, with 53% saying No.

I'm amazed CSPAN has provided us the coverage for this long.

21 Councils have reported and the vote stands at 55% No and 45% yes. Looks like only 3 have been in favor of independence. They're saying Glasgow should be in soon.

Well, after Glasgow it seems that the UK of GB and NI will survive, but what changes will we see?

It think that we'll be reading about the factors involved in this referendum, and its consequences, for some time. Political analysts will have a lovely time with it all. From listening to the commentary on the BBC coverage, it seems that there have been a number of factors involved, and some divisions of opinion that weren't foreseen. The fact foreigners living in Scotland have had a vote seems to have made a difference in some areas, and party-political influence also seems to have been significant.

It will be interesting to see what the response of Westminster is to the obvious dissatisfaction of the large percentage who voted Yes. It will also be interesting to see whether this high voter turnout continues into the next election.

Why such a low turnout in Glasgow?

Fascinating stuff!

Why is BBC saying No needs 517,554 to win? It seems since no is carrying at 54% that's game, set and match.

So am I, especially since it's only 9:00 on the West Coast of the US. I think I may be able to hear the end result by midnight local time.

BBC is saying that 1,852,828 votes is what is needed for either side to win. If the No is at 1,305,000 votes then they need about 500,000 more to win.

And it's all over. I admit I'm glad Scotland is staying. I think if they want to be independent then they need some concrete ideas of how they're going to deal with all kinds of issues like currency,national defense etc and not just hope that everything will sort its self out and/or that the UK will be generous with the separation package.

There's still 6 counties to report. I doubt it'll change things much, but you know the whole don't count your eggs proverb.
