Prime Minister David Cameron today called on the “silent majority” of Scots who support the UK to make their voices heard in the run up to the independence referendum.

He insisted it was possible to be a patriotic Scot and vote No.

He said: “We’ve heard the noise of the Nationalist few, but now it is time for the voices of the silent majority to be heard. With 77 days to go, we need the voices of the many to ring out across the land. For each one to realise that they are not alone because there are millions just like them.

“Too many people have been made to feel that you can’t be a proud Scot and say ‘no thanks’. You’ve got to choose between the Saltire and the Union flag. That is wrong. Loving your country means wanting the best for it – and for Scotland that is staying in the UK.”
