This. People tend to vote for the status quo, unless there is a strong force driving them for change. As such the claim that this result demonstrates "Scotland needs England more than vice versa" is one that will need a serious amount of evidence, showing that the electorate here had gone to great effort to inform themselves of the financial impact both outcomes would have, and made a decision on that basis.
