From May 1291, when King Edward I of England demanded he be recognized as the "Paramount Lord of Scotland" and succeeded in doing so with individual Scottish nobles, to September 2014, a span of 723 years, England controlled or ruled over Scotland.

Starting from September 18, 2014, Scotland once again regains its independence from England, and begins a long chapter of Scottish history that its Older Guardians may have felt had slipped from their grasp, but is now back firmly in their hands.

Scotland no longer has a great king, but it has found something even better.  It has found itself a sovereign nation.  Congratulations!!!

i truly believe the votin was a bit bias from those voters cos the voters dont really have to live there or the citizen there as well...and then again the result was very very klose 53 to 47  
a man who uses his hands is a laborer. one who uses his hands and his mind is a craftsman. but he who uses his hands, his mind, and his heart, is an artist...

The Scots must have gotten scared by the threats hurled at them from the Bank of England, the major banks and life insurance companies, even the supermarkets, at least some of them, enough to change their minds about leaving an abusive relationship.  If so, expect them to get more, not less abuse from their English worser-half in the coming months.  Their MP's are likely to be barred from voting on English-only issues, to be defined by, of course, the English MP's.  Alex Salmond should bank on retiring in exile somewhere, like China, if he loses the referendum, because the English will figuratively tear him limb from limb, like they did literally to Wallace in 1305, 709 years ago.
