Responding to Alex Salmond's speech this morning, David Cameron described the Scottish First Minister as "a man without a plan."
"He told us that he wanted to have a currency union and that now looks under threat."
"He told us that he wanted Scotland as part of the European Union. That is under threat."
"He is making, I think, quite an empty and rather angry speech today, but he hasn't got a plan and I think people will see that he hasn't got a plan."
"We were promised a detailed response to the economic arguments that I, the Chief Secretary and the shadow chancellor made last week, but instead we got an empty speech" said Chancellor George Osborne.
"Detailed analysis and independent advice shows clearly that what is best for Scotland is keeping the stable and durable currency union we have now."
