The UK political establishment was rocked to its foundations as voters in Scotland voted overwhelmingly for political engagement by a massive margin of 82% for ‘Yes’ to a mere 18% for ‘No’.
Leaders of the ‘Better Not Bother’ movement – which had sought to persuade Scottish people to watch things like X Factor instead of becoming politically engaged – were in turmoil as unprecedented numbers of voters defied expectations and turned out to vote.
The shock results come just months after a resounding victory in the European Elections earlier this year for the Better Not Bother campaign, in which well over 66% of the electorate decided they’d rather do the shopping rather than voting.
