So the family of nations of the UK will remain together. For now. We have been handed an opportunity to build a new, better UK – for all of us. Cameron’s offer of pseudo devo city regions should be ignored as a cynical attempt to silence calls for regional and national devolution under a federal government, with a model which will pit city against city, each competing for scraps from Westminster’s table.
Scotland has lead the way and the debate has shown there is a desire for a better, fairer and more representative democracy. This isn’t the end of Scottish independence, it should be seen as an opportunity for all the parts of the UK to campaign together for more local democratic self determination.
Despite the inevitable posturing over the result, Westminster is running scared. They know we have the power to make changes for the better. After yesterday, we know it too.
And that’s why we need to keep them worried.
