It's a Negative Victory in Scotland!

Econintersect:  The Financial Times is reporting that that outcome of the referendum on national independence in Scotland has become evident earlier than many expected because the "No" vote is going to be victorious by a larger margin than public opinion polls had predicted. With Edinburgh and an additional "handful of results to be declared" there is a ten point margin of approval for Scotland to remain part of the United Kingdom.

There are still some points of confusion.  Two and a half hours before the FT report, CNN reported that the margin of victory for the "No" vote, with 60% of the results tabulated, was 54% to 46%, but that reportedly included Edinburgh which voted by a 61 to 39 margin (194,628 to 123,927), to stay part of Great Britain.
