The Union lives through yet another night
Big sigh of relief, as the Union gets a fairly reassuring majority of votes in a great example of true democracy. The margin isn't as great and solid as i'd like it to be, and it is clear that change is desired and necessary. But the United Kingdom has to get better and stronger together, not break down: breaking down the Union wouldn't be of any help.
I'm glad that the Union stands. Democracy has been applied, the people have spoken. Thankfully, the divisive arguments haven't won the day.
There is plenty to be done, but it shall be done together.
And on the defence front, things can get back in motion. The shipyards can expect the go ahead for restructuring and upgrading soon, and hopefully the Type 26 program will make the news in the next while.
Keep on riding.
