Cameron: ‘You can be a patriotic Scot and vote no’

Prime minister David Cameron is in Scotland today and will tell voters ‘you can be a patriotic Scot and vote no’.

Speaking at a Rally for the Union event, Cameron is to say that he is speaking for the ‘silent majority, who oppose Scottish independence ahead of the vote in 77 days.

We’ve heard the noise of the Nationalist few, but now it is time for the voices of the silent majority to be heard,’ he will say.

‘The silent majority who feel happy being part of the UK; the silent majority who don’t want the risks of going it alone; the silent majority who worry about what separation would mean for their children and grandchildren.

‘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.’

The prime minister will also say that ‘we’re safer and better off together’ with the union offering the ‘best of both worlds together’.

‘You can be proudly Scottish and want to stay in the UK. Too many people in this country have been made to feel that you can’t be a proud Scot and say “No thanks”,’ he’ll say.

‘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.

‘So yes – you can be a patriotic Scot and vote no.’

Cameron will be joined at the event by Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson MSP.
