I'm too late to the party, but will nevertheless add a comment as from a Scottish perspective. We all know the result now- a slim majority 'No' vote. Myself, friends and family individually oscillated in deciding our votes, while processing national, economic, political and maybe even some historical arguments on both sides! It was a really tough call for all of us. On referendum day, it seemed to me that (perhaps tautologically) the more politically liberal amongst my circle came down 'Aye' and the more conservative as 'Naw'. I'm touched by the pleas here (and, at the time, in real life!) from English friends to 'stay', as I can tell these come from valuing a shared, entwined history and (to an extent) values. We're still in the UK, but had we seceded that history would still, and will always, be there.
