The Westminster Government have made a number of promises to the people of Scotland about giving more devolved powers. Promises made to try and keep Scotland within the Union. We'll see how they pan out, but I suspect if they renege on them there will be trouble ahead.
Those voting for Scottish Independence vow to continue campaigning on and there is talk of another referendum in a few years.
But for now it would be great to keep up the level of political engagement that the referendum brought and take that forward to the next Westminster and Scottish elections.
I voted in Stromness. Most isles residents get a postal vote but mine didn't appear so I went to town to vote. The town was buzzing with lots of folk clutching their polling cards (you can vote without them but it saves time).
After voting I went into Julia's cafe for breakfast and folk were discussing in very good natured terms the pros and cons of independence, and how folk thought the vote would go. It was great to have such good natured discussion.
