The strongest warhorses Westminster could muster galloped into the battle for Scotland this week, unified and energized by the fight against independence.
British Prime Minister David Cameron, a member of the Conservative Party, more commonly known as the Tories, was joined by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, a member of the Liberal Party, and Ed Miliband, leader of the Labor Party, in pleading for Scotland to remain within the United Kingdom.
Their arrival provoked the scorn of Alex Salmond, first minister of Scotland and leader of the Scottish National Party, who mocked the British politicians as being in a “state of absolute panic. They are the most despised politicians in Scotland. Team Scotland will beat Team Westminster.”
