Speaking on her website about her decision to donate £1 million to a keep Scotland in the United Kingdom campaign, JK Rowling said:
My hesitance at embracing independence has nothing to do with lack of belief in Scotland's remarkable people or its achievements.
The simple truth is that Scotland is subject to the same 21st century pressures as the rest of the world.
The more I listen to the Yes campaign, the more I worry about its minimisation and even denial of risks.
I wanted to write this because I always prefer to explain in my own words why I am supporting a cause and it will be made public shortly that I've made a substantial donation to the Better Together campaign.
