David Cameron is "cowardly" for encouraging unity from London and not debating Scottish independence in Edinburgh, the deputy first minister of Scotland has said.
Nicola Sturgeon said the speech was a sign of the "jitters" running through the No vote camp.
This is a cowardly speech from a prime minister who uses the Olympic Park in London to give high-handed lectures against Scotland's independence but hasn't got the guts to come to Scotland or anywhere else to make his case in a head-to-head debate.
David Cameron, as the Tory Prime Minister, is the very embodiment of the democratic case for a Yes vote for an independent Scotland - and he knows it....
A Yes vote will put Scotland's future in Scotland's hands, and will mean we will never again have to endure Tory governments, prime ministers and policies we didn't vote for.
