Leaders to defend 'family of nations' in Scotland

Prime Minister David Cameron warned Scottish voters that independence would be a “leap into the dark” on Wednesday as the leaders of all three parties headed north in an urgent bid to head off surging support for a split. With only eight days to go before Scotland votes on whether to end the 300-year-old union, Cameron and opposition Labour leader Ed Miliband agreed to skip their weekly debate in the House of Commons and travel north of the border. “So let no one in Scotland be in any doubt: we desperately want you to stay; So the choice for you is clear: a leap into the dark with a Yes vote, or a brighter future for Scotland by voting No. You can have the best of both worlds in the UK.”
