A picture dated August 5, 2014 shows Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond (L) shaking hands with leader of the Better Together campaign and former minister Alistair Darling (R)The ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ camps in Scotland’s independence debate were preparing Sunday for their final TV showdown of the campaign, trading fresh blows on the economy — and the ice bucket challenge. Three weeks before Scotland votes on whether to split from Britain, pro-independence First Minister Alex Salmond will face Alistair Darling, leader of the ‘No’ campaign, in their second debate on Monday night. Opinion polls indicate that Scots are set to reject independence in the referendum on September 18. Salmond and the pro-independence camp argue that Scotland would be wealthier as a separate country while Darling and the ‘No’ camp say being part of Britain gives Scotland greater economic stability.
