PM urges Scotland to stay in UK in New Year message

As the countdown to the independence referendum begins, the Prime Minister has used his New Year message to tell the people of Scotland "we want you to stay" and "build an even stronger" UK.

In his annual message he explained the UK Government's New Year's resolution is to stick to the long term plan that "is turning the country around", according to Mr Cameron.

The economy is turning a corner, he claimed, with businesses opening up, people getting decent jobs and factories making British goods and selling them to the world.

"That's why this year, 2014, we are not just going to stick to the plan. We are going to redouble our efforts to deliver every part of it, to benefit the whole country and secure a better future for everyone," he said.
