    Scottish voters have made their choices. Now those in power must make their own.

    Two governments will have two very different interpretations of these election results.

    In Edinburgh, the new Scottish government – made up of the SNP, almost certainly supported by the Greens – will argue that a majority for pro-independence parties provides a clear mandate for a second referendum.

    In London, the UK government will continue to argue that nothing has fundamentally changed. The new Holyrood parliament looks remarkably like the last, and the referendum in 2014 was once in a generation – now is not the time for another.

    In practice, that means we are looking at an almighty constitutional clash. Not immediately, but certainly in the coming few years.
