Scotland referendum results in one image

This might be the most perfect thing I’ll see all week.

Reinstall scotland

I sincerely hope that as Scotland is reinstalled, the divisions caused by the campaign don’t cause any bugs. Or perhaps I should say, more bugs than already existed.

May Scotland v.2.0 be prosperous, and may the memories of Westminster politicians last longer than such things are wont to do.

    Oh, I like this. Stayed up all night til it was absolutely def. The pundits were all calling it for No with up to 10 regions ( out of 32) still to declare. 06.45 my head hit the pillow. After Aberdeen and Edinburgh came in there was only the Highlands left, but there voter numbers would not have overturned the vote. A record turnout of over 84%, with one region having 91%. It was quite compulsive viewing. Where did you find that image if I may ask. I would love to send it on .

      That turnout really is astounding. Hurrah for the Scots, having such a say in their future. If we had that sort of voter turnout in the US, our government would look a lot different.

      Alas, I can’t source that image for you — my wife saw it in a tweet and sent it on to me. I expect it will show up all over the web soon, though…

    Amazing voter percentage. I do love the image. After scanning the BBC news, I am stuck with one phrase: “if you laid all of the economists in the world end to end, they still wouldn’t reach a conclusion” and while I know this was more than an economic vote, it seemed that economics and choice in economic policy were a central part to the movement.
