When is a Yes a No? When you add in did-not-vote!
There have been 7 referenda held in Scotland since 1975. Three have applied UK-wide and four were held in Scotland only.
The 1979 Scottish Assembly Referendum led to the SNP
supporting a no confidence motion in the Labour government after the wishes of the Scottish people were denied by the imposition of the notorious 40% rule. This meant that 40% of the electorate had to vote Yes rather than a simple majority of those who
cast their ballots.
