GLASGOW, Scotland — Scotland voted 'No' to independence on Thursday. After a long night, here are some of the key questions to consider:

Some of their warnings were justified, others spin. But Scotland — as the UK's second most prosperous region — took the warnings seriously.
(b) The main political parties delivered a last-minute compromise giving Scotland more powers to tax and spend, and guaranteed its right to run a free healthcare service, even if the rest of the UK sees a more privatized one in the future. Also they guaranteed Scotland will go on getting subsidized by the rest of the UK. Read more...More about United Kingdom, Scotland, Us World, World, and Highlights
