Scotland's Decision: The noes have it

Published: 19 September 2014

Charlie Jeffery provides a quick assessment of the morning's events and the indyref result, in the first of his analyses today. 

So now we know. Scottish voters have made the momentous decision to remain within the UK.

Amid the celebrations on one side and what for many will be a deep sense of disappointment on the other, what happens now?

We have heard the initial reactions of the First Minister as he conceded defeat and Alistair Darling celebrating victory. Both have lauded the high turnout. We will be hearing from the Prime Minister shortly.

We also now know that forty-five percent of the Scottish electorate voted to leave the union. There will be pressure for change that reflects and understands Scottish needs.

We will continue to bring you analysis throughout the day. 

The SNP: A Party of Union?

Whatever happened to Tory unionism?
