Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has dismissed David Cameron's speech on the Scottish referendum as "flimsy" and urged him to debate the issue in Scotland, rather than issue "edicts from Mount Olympus".
Speaking to ITV News, Mr Salmond said:
"Let's have a genuine democratic debate. If the Prime Minister is not prepared to accept that, people are going to start to ask: 'What is he frightened of?'"
