As I’m writing this post right now, we’ve been knowing for sure for several hours: with 55% of “no” votes, Scotland is staying in the UK. On a quick look at my Twitter feed, I’m getting a mixed bag of relief, celebration, introspection, ‘what next’ concern and that rant from Trainspotting (nsfw).
The one comment that caught my eye, however, came from Sussex Uni fellow Ben Stanley.
A rogue poll might have had far-reaching consequences for the British constitution. This is a good argument for stats education.
