Early Results Have Scotland Staying in the Union

From The Scotsman

Clackmannanshire and Orkney, two prime targets for the Yes campaign, have instead gone solidly to the No camp.  83.7% turnout in Orkney, 88.6% in Clackmannanshire.

Prime minister David Cameron is scheduled to make a televised statement around 11 p.m. PDT.  His devolution card, essentially a bribe to secure No votes, is causing a furor in England.  There's some talk about getting the same deal for England, including an English Parliament.

Gee, if the Brits wind up with a Scottish Parliament and an English Parliament and, presumably, a Welsh Parliament, there might not be much left of a United Kingdom at all.
