EDINBURGH, Scotland — Scots hold the fate of the United Kingdom in their hands today as they vote in a referendum on becoming an independent state, deciding whether to unravel a marriage with England that built an empire but has increasingly been felt by many Scots as stifling and one-sided.
Voters will answer “Yes” or “No” to the referendum question: “Should Scotland be an independent country?”
With 4,285,323 people – 97% of the electorate – registered to vote, it is expected to be the busiest day in Scottish electoral history.
Votes will be cast at 5,579 polling stations until 22:00 on Thursday. The result is expected on Friday morning.
Personally, I’m no big fan of cessation.
I’m from the “can’t we all just get along” camp. Yet, there would be many good reasons for the Scots to secede.
Generally speaking however, unity is an incredibly powerful force for fulfilling shared goals and objectives.
I should know, I’ve visited all of the Regency Nursing Centers in Jersey.
No cessation going on in our places.
Our unity of purpose (to provide the very best in senior healthcare) is palpable!
