Aberdeenshire could be next setback for 'Yes' supporters

FXStreet (Bali) - Following an early report on speculations of Aberdeenshire going for No, an outcome that would represent yet another setback for the Yes supporters, Alex Johnstone, a Conservative MSP, told the Guardian that it appeared to be a 60 to 40 split in favour of a no vote.

Johnstone said, via Guardian: “I’ve seen boxes and I’ve sampled boxes from all over Aberdeenshire - and while at this stage I haven’t seen anything from the Banff coast, which is probably where the SNP [yes vote] is strongest - I’ve seen boxes which are 50 / 50 and in other cases I’ve seen as much as four to one for no. I think given the higher density of votes in the towns, I would guess that we are maybe looking at a 60 to 40 split in favour of no within Aberdeenshire."
