Even if the Scottish voted to stay within the Union which was a bit disappointing for a for lost of people both side of the boarder it has been a very successful exercise in the end especially in Scotland as it has finally engaged people with politics and got them interested in it!
Because they allowed 16 and 17 year olds to vote in the referendum it has also engaged the young there with politics something much needed at the moment as the young should be far more politically aware something which has been missing in the past decades here in the United Kingdom.
There is a hope this spreads to the rest of the United Kingdom as the result of the referendum in Scotland even with a no vote has meant they will have further further autonomy within the Union. This has started talk among the other members of the Union and its people about each region having more autonomy themselves that is in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and more devolution from power from Westminster itself.
My personal view all this is long over due and the rest of the Union should start like Scotland for more autonomy from Westminster as Parliament and Establishment there is far too remote from the people they rule and it is time for change the way the Union is ruled as the current way from Westminster simply is not working effective enough if anything damaging the country,
One thing which should come out of the Scottish Referendum is a new hope for the Union and it’s future regardless of the result!
