British PM heads to Scotland

British PM David Cameron and opposition leader Ed Miliband said in a joint statement they would travel to Scotland on Wednesday as polls show those for and against independence evenly split ahead of next week’s referendum. Cameron and Miliband will miss their usual weekly parliamentary debate in London but said: ‘We want to be listening and talking to voters about the huge choice they face.

Our message to the Scottish people will be simple: ‘We want you to stay’.’ The statement was also signed by Deputy PM Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Democrats, who will also hit the campaign trail in Scotland. An official said that Cameron and Miliband would not hold joint events. The visits come after a poll on Sunday which showed the ‘Yes’ camp ahead for the first time, while experts say the vote it was too close to call.
