英语新闻:英国和苏格兰这婚没离成

2014-09-19    来源:Sky News    【      美国外教 在线口语培训
公投结果刚刚出来,苏格兰32个地区中已有31地计票结束,独立派获得45%的支持率,反独派支持率为55%。尽管仍有1个地区计票未完成,但已不会影响公投整体结果,苏格兰将留在英国。

Scotland Votes No To Independence
 
Scotland will remain part of the United Kingdom after voting against independence in a historic referendum.
 
After years of campaigning Alex Salmond's dream of breaking up the 307-year-old Union has been shattered.
 
Despite major Yes victories in Dundee and the nation's largest city Glasgow, the Better Together campaign secured the majority it needed.
 


However, Scotland will still gain more devolved powers from Westminster following pledges by the three main parties.
 
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said whatever the result, politics in Scotland would not be the same: "The status quo has been thoroughly smashed."
 
Labour MP Jim Murphy, who played a leading role in the Better Together campaign, told Sky News: "We are going to have to make a success of the decision Scotland has made.
 
"While I'm delighted, there is no time or space for triumph and we have got to get on and offer that devolution package we offered and unite the country around that."
 
In the closing stages of a hard-fought campaign, it appeared the momentum had swung towards Mr Salmond.
 
Ultimately however, he failed to convince the Scottish electorate that the merits of going it alone outweighed the risks.
 
David Cameron is due to make a live TV address to the nation from 10 Downing Street once the result is confirmed.
 
The Prime Minister is expected to set out not only proposals to devolve more powers to the Scottish Parliament, but also significant changes for other parts of the country.
 
Shortly before the result was confirmed, Mr Cameron tweeted: "I've spoken to Alistair Darling - and congratulated him on an well-fought campaign."
 
The historic referendum looked set to break records for turnout, with figures as high as 91% in East Dunbartonshire, 90.4% in East Renfrewshire and 90.1% in Stirling.(Sky News)
