David Cameron will make a heartfelt plea to the people of Scotland on Friday to vote for continued membership of the UK as he issues a strong warning against the dangers of complacency about the results of the referendum in seven months' time.
Amid jitters in the pro-UK camp that opinion polls may be shifting in the direction of independence before the vote on 18 September, the prime minister will visit the scene of Team GB's success at the London 2012 Olympics to declare: "We want you to stay."
Cameron's speech, described by the SNP deputy first minister Nicola Sturgeon as a "tawdry bid to use the Olympic Games as a political tool", is designed to change the tone of the Better Together pro-UK campaign which has been criticised for being relentlessly negative.

Dave’s speech will convince more people to vote Yes. The man is a fool.
“...Unfortunately, with this tawdry bid to use the Olympic Games past and present as a political tool, David Cameron has exposed the utter hypocrisy and double standards at the heart of the No campaign.”
How much does anyone want to bet that the YesNP uses the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this summer in a ‘tawdry bid’ to promote the Yes campaign?
Someone needs to explain to the Scots the concept of no more welfare.
You jest, of course.
Globalism makes everyone codependent...
If Scotland votes for independence will they be a republic or restore the king?
The revenge of William Wallace...........
The manifesto of the ‘Yes’ campaign makes it quite clear that there will be no change to the head of state. The British monarch will be head of state in the same way that she is now for many commonwealth countries.
Incidentally, Scotland will not need to ‘restore the king’ because Scotland has never lost its monarch. At the Union of the Crowns in at the beginning of the 17th century the reigning Scottish monarch inherited the English throne, but remained King of Scotland also.
Considering their political proclivities, they’ll become a “People’s Republic.”
Thanks for the info.
