The Scottish First Minister, Alex Salmond, has tweeted a series of messages about the Scottish independence referendum due to take place in September.
His tweets are in response to a speech made by President Obama in which the American politician said he thought Scotland should stay in the United Kingdom.
As President Obama rightly observes, the decision on Scotland’s future is up to the people of Scotland http://t.co/fXbaNEpc6S (AA)
An independent Scotland will mean that America has two great friends & allies here rather than one http://t.co/fXbaNEpc6S (AA)
We’re focussed on making Scotland a land of opportunity & our message to the people of Scotland is: ‘Yes We Can’ http://t.co/fXbaNEpc6S (AA)
It was the 'Portillo moment' of this general election in Scotland. As dawn broke, Alex Salmond was defeated by the Tories in Moray.
The voters of Scotland have spoken and we're beginning to get a feel for what it is they are saying.
Although it is only an exit poll, tonight's prediction of the Tories falling short, Labour gaining and the SNP down, is sensational.
