Scottish Business Impact Study
The thorny issue of Scottish independence is a centuries old debate. Would the country be better off if it severed its political and economic ties with the UK? Could we survive, or do we need the support of the United Kingdom?
For many the answer would be a vocal cry for Scottish independence, but when it came down to it, the Scottish voting electorate – that is those who chose to vote, decided that they would much rather the devil they know, than the devil they don’t.
In a somewhat crushing blow for Alex Salmond and the Scottish Nationalist Party, they Scottish people voted to remain part of the UK, taking comfort from the greater participation in Europe as a whole.
