Scotland Votes NO

Scotland has voted 'No' to independence – but the United Kingdom still faces the biggest political revolution in centuries.

Outside No 10 Downing Street, barely hours after the referendum result was known, Prime Minister David Cameron promised that "English votes for English laws" would accompany the delivery of promised new powers over income tax and welfare to the Scottish Parliament.

Under Mr Cameron's proposed plan Scottish, Welsh or Northern Ireland MPs would no longer have the right to vote in Westminster on laws that did not affect their nations.

This change in the basic structure of the Union would be negotiated alongside the new powers that were pledged to Scotland in the last desperate days of the referendum.

But it is expected to spark a new, fierce row over what this means in practice - how the British government is chosen, how a budget is passed and whether it requires a separate English parliament.
