Yesterday, Scottish voters had a turnout of 85% to vote on whether they would declare independence from the United Kingdom. Scottish citizens voted 55% in favor of remaining part of the UK, which was a massive sigh of relief for British leaders. Thursday's turnout was the largest since World War II. The vote was critical, as Scotland's two largest banks, Lloyd's Banking Group Ltd. (NYSE: LYG) and Royal Bank of Scotland Group Ltd. (NYSE: RBS) had said they planned to relocate to London in the event that their countrymen voted in favor of the independence plan.
