He also reiterated that that on the polls, the Yes campaign is gaining ground and that the best people to govern are the people who "live and work in the country".

Responding on the Murnaghan programme on Sky News to an article on the Guardian on an independent Scotland, Salmond said that all this "bluff and bluster about not sharing sterling is a campaign tactic."

Salmond said the 'No' campaign is trying to 'scare the natives' by insisting there will not be a currency union.
