Miliband: Labour can give Scotland the change it needs

Ed Miliband has told Labour voters in Scotland to vote No at the independence referendum as a Labour government next year will provide the change they need.

With just two weeks to go until the vote on Scotland's future, Miliband travelled to Lanarkshire, where party founder Keir Hardie was born, to make a passionate plea ahead of the 18 September vote.

Mr Miliband insisted it was his party, and not Alex Salmond's SNP, that would bring about the change the country needs.

"I know the way to get rid of this Tory government, that is to vote No and to elect a Labour government, and that is what I believe is going to happen," he said.

Salmond: I don't see Miliband has any credibility left

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond claimed Ed Miliband does not have "any credibility left" after the Labour leader said it was his party that would bring about the change Scotland needs.

"The Labour Party have pledged to continue the austerity of the Conservatives," Salmond said.

"They are also in bed with the Tories in this [No] campaign, so I don't see that Ed Miliband has any credibility left," he added.
