Scotland stays in the UK. The vote is almost completely counted.

Scotland has voted and the majority wants to stay in the UK. 55% said no to the Scottish Independence and 45% voted yes. This the current result with just one council area missing according to the BBC.

This was an historic vote after Scotland joined the UK in 1707. It looks like at the last minute voters decided that it is better to stay in the UK than to have to deal with a lot of uncertainties

The final results are expected to come in any moment. The voter turnout of the Scotland Independence poll was close to 90% according to latest reports. Despite Scotland voting No to independence, there will be change. The UK needs to adjust the relationship with Scotland to improve the public opinion and fix what the YES campaign used to drive 45% of votes.

David Cameron just addressed the nation saying: "The people of Scotland have spoken and it is a clear result. They have kept our country of four nations together and like millions of other people I am delighted."
