Deputy first minister of Scotland concedes defeat

FXStreet (Bali) - Nicola Sturgeon, deputy first minister of Scotland, has crossed the wires conceding defeat for the 'Yes' campaign.

Quotes by Sturgeon

"There isn’t a yes vote tonight. We will be deeply disappointed but I have also been exhilerated by this campaign. I think that there’s two clear messages coming out of it; firstly the people of Scotland have clearly found their voice."

"Secondly with over one million voting for independence at this stage, there’s a big appetite for change. What we are not seeing, emphatically not, is any kind of endorsement of the status quo.’

"I’m not denying the state of the results just now. I’m not trying to spin myself out of the reality of the result. There are still results to declare. We will need to see those results before we get the final tally, but its absolutely clear that there has been demand for change and let’s get that change delivered now."
