Scotland Remains United

by Kate Barton

On September 19, 2014, Scotland voted to continue being a part of the United Kingdom by a vote of 55% to 45%. Many pro-independent voters reasoned that “Scotland is being held back socially and economically,” said Donald Mclean, 65, a Utilities Consultant from Glasgow and some say they’re “looking for a more just society. Westminster is Right-leaning and Scotland is Left-leaning,” according to David Milligan, 68, a retired architect from Lanarkshire. The reasons for staying together we mostly based on the benefits politically and economically for being part of the UK that some feared without they would have many problems. British Prime Minister David Cameron said the vote has sealed Scotland and the U.K together at least “for a generation.”
