London promises Scotland more power if it stays with United Kingdom

The Scottish independence debate was been dominated on Tuesday by a pledge from the leaders of the three main parties for more devolution.

Writing in Scotland’s Daily Record newspaper, they accept Scotland will change even if it rejects independence and have promised Scots greater control over state funding and healthcare.

Former Labour prime minister Gordon Brown has also been adding his weight to the ‘No’ campaign, urging voters to stay together for the common good.

“We lose the benefit we have from the UK currency and the ability to make decisions at the UK level and let’s be honest about this, the one million jobs that are linked to membership of the UK,” Brown told a ‘No’ campaign rally.

The latest polls show the decision on the fate of the United Kingdom remains too close to call.
