I was wrong

I wouldn't call 55.3 percent to 44.7 percent "narrow." In an election, ten percentage points is a lot.

On the other hand, by spooking the UK establishment, the Scots did get a promise for even more autonomy, the very thing that the British government did not want even a referendum vote on. So if this was all a super-secret plan to wrest more local control from London through a sophisticated political jujitsu, then it was a remarkable success.
