UK PM campaigning in Scotland

Scotland will have a referendum on independence in September.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron is in Scotland for a two day visit in the wake of poll results showing a steady rise in those supporting Scottish independence.


The PM will spend the trip campaigning for a ‘No’ vote in September when a referendum will take place to ask Scots if they want to remain as part of the UK.  


Cameron is pushing the “Better Together” campaign, which is being led by Labour MP and former Chancellor Alistair Darling.

Cameron will try to persuade Scots that unity is the preferable option.

The PM recently reminded voters about the late Labour leader John Smith. 

Speaking ahead of his Glasgow arrival, Cameron said: “I have been heartened to see so many people finding their voice.

“People from all walks of life and all parts of the UK know, as I know, that we are all better together.

“Twenty years ago this week, the Labour leader John Smith died. Whatever people thought of his policies, nobody could argue that he was a proud Scot who wanted the best for his country.

“And why not? Like millions of other people, he knew that loving your country and at the same time wanting to be part of something bigger does not make you any less Scottish.

“That truth is shared by millions of others. So my message is simple. We want Scotland to stay.

“We are all enriched by being together. Scotland puts the great into Great Britain. Together we are a United Kingdom with a united future.”
