Can you taste the democrazy?
Quote:Independence referendum figures revealed: Majority of Scots born here voted YES while voters from elsewhere in UK said NO

NEARLY three quarters of people from elsewhere in the UK voted for the country to stick together despite over half of native Scots wanting a break up. Check the detailed statistics here.

RE: Scottish independence thread
The maternity hospitals along the borders have catchment areas spanning both sides of them. So a lot of those born on the English side of the border count as not born in Scotland despite their family coming from the north side. The NHS groups can refer patients to the nearby hospitals controlled by the neighbouring groups. Here is an article about some recent bureaucratic disputes. Really muddies the waters.

The borders are a pro-union stronghold to. Then there is those who work around the UK and have children. Then there is us actual oppressive English huns and the Waelisc.

Meanwhile the no vote strongholds are Irish catholic central.

Still a better article than the Daily Mail one claiming the English where behind the No vote winning.

I didn't care which way the vote went but it was nice to see the far left tears over the no vote coming out on top. Big Grin
