Campaign to keep union

Have your say

A CROSS-PARTY “Keep Scotland in Britain” campaign is expected to be launched in the new year to counter the SNP’s drive for independence.

Reports today said former Chancellor and Edinburgh South-West Labour MP Alistair Darling could take a prominent role in the campaign along with former Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy.

The move comes as a survey yesterday showed two-thirds of Scots said they would vote for independence if it left them £500 better off – but would vote against if it made them £500 worse off.
