The CNN presenter, her voice straining over the roars of the crowds, smiles and delivers her piece to camera:
“Yesterday, on the 18th September, Scotland voted in a referendum that, some say, will decided forever its relationship with the rest of the United Kingdom. A day on, and we know now that 85% of the electorate cast their vote, that the referendum has been confirmed as, I quote, “free and democratic” by the monitoring OSCE or Organisation for Security & Co=operation in Europe and the Scottish government has already called on both the UN and the EU to recognise its outcome. What question was put to the Scottish people yesterday? They were asked, Yes or no, do you want to retain your European citizenship. “What’s that got to do with the UK?” you’ll be asking. Well, if the Scottish government claims are true and it really has the green light from Brussels to remain in the EU, then it is set on a collision course with London that many see as a requiem for the United Kingdom. Viewers will know that the UK is leaving the EU -that’s BREXIT folks.”
