Scotland votes ‘No’ to independence

No supporters for the Scottish independence referendum celebrate the overall result at a No campaign event at an hotel in Glasgow, Scotland, Friday, Sept. 19, 2014.

The fate of the British pound, which has been one of the most tangible links of the union, will be front and center of the separation proceedings as it has been for the past few months during the cut and thrust of the campaign.
