Quoted byReuters onTuesday, September 23, 2014, the news was delivered directly by Cameron while attending a united nations general assembly session in New York, UNITED STATES. A TV crew accidentally asked Cameron about Scotland while talking to former New York Mayor Michale Blooomberg.
“When I called the Queen, she sounded very happy. I’ve never heard anyone so happy like that,” Cameron said.

With a narrow 50-45 victory, Cameron said he had been frustrated with Scotland’s independence plans. “I did not expect the result of the vote will be such a thin difference. It felt like I wanted to go to the organizing committee and sue them for making my stomach hurt. I’m very nervous,” Cameron said. After the referendum was rejected, Cameron planned to reform government and a fair settlement for commonwealth countries, including Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. On the other hand, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond decided to resign from his post after efforts to free his country were rejected by a majority of citizens.
