Cameron, Clegg and Miliband visit Scotland for a day campaign
As a last attempt to tell people that choosing independence could be disastrous to the nation, Prime Minister Cameron, Nick Clegg and Miliband visited Scotland for a day-long campaign which was derailed by Scotland First Minister Alex Salmond as a last-gasp piece of desperation.
While Scotland wants to be independent, the rest of the UK wants it to stay together and much has been done in the recent past in order to make it stay. However, Salmond’s Yes campaign has caught a lot of attention and people are said to be responding well to the campaign. This has given rise to fears that they might vote for the separation in the election that will be held on September 18.
To tell people that the United Kingdom when it stands as a whole with all the member nations, has achieved a lot. Cameron, Clegg and Miliband have chosen not to campaign together and will be speaking to crowds at different places as they can cover a larger area than otherwise. During the campaign, Cameron stresses on the facts that the nations have established a lot when it stood together. He points out the NHS and the pension system which have benefitted millions of its citizens.
However, Salmond views the visit as a way to get more attention for the Yes campaign and thinks that he will be able to get more people vote for an independent Scotland. While the other member states have asked the Queen to intervene in the matter, the Queen has refused that she would not do so.
The Queen, in the past has said, “I number kings and queens of Scotland and princes of Wales among my ancestors and so I can readily understand these aspirations. But I cannot forget that I was crowned Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.”
