The Scottish public have spoken and the results are in and it's a massive vote for Erm Not Sure. Although there was a majority for sticking with the United Kingdom it was far from an overwhelming majority. From a distance it feels like independence won the argument but lost the vote. The most impressive result was the turnout with a breathtaking 85% of people eligible casting a vote. Scotland will never be the same again.
On this disappointing day for almost half of the people of a proud and noble country here are some new Scottish bands to listen to while you reflect on the result of the referendum and another generation of partial rule from Westminster.

I can't do a post on Scottish music without a track from my good friends Sarahjane and Roger aka The Bird and The Monkey.

Well today's the day when Scotland decides it's future and with the polls now closed it's all over bar the counting. Despite my Scottish name and ancestory as a sassenach I didn't have a vote but in solidarity with my Caledonian brothers and sisters I offer up the vote from the ballboy jury.
