Scottish government 'trusted over Westminster'

The referendum rally will be setting out the vision of a better Scotland with the powers of an independent country, the SNP will say today, as it continues to press for a yes vote. SNP campaigns director director Angus Robertson said:

Even the most bitter opponents of independence now accept that we could be a successful independent country - the debate now is that we need to be independent because people who live in Scotland will take far better decisions for Scotland on the economy, welfare, pensions and defence than politicians at Westminster ever can.
