David Cameron will launch a last-ditch bid to save the Union tomorrow after violent swings in the polls showed the referendum on Scottish independence heading for a dead heat.
In a speech in Scotland tomorrow Mr Cameron will warn voters that there will be “no way back” if they vote to leave the UK.
Going on the attack, he will abandon his “love-bombing” strategy of the past week and will warn: “If Scotland votes ‘yes’, the UK will split and we will go our separate ways for ever.”
On a trip to Aberdeen he will say: “We must be very clear that there’s no going back from this. No rerun. This is a once-and-for-all decision.”
One story dominates Thursday's front pages with some newspapers printing emotive pleas to voters to keep the United Kingdom as one.
In Edinburgh tonight you can hear it and feel it. The buzz, the banter of the day and the thrilling sense something big is coming tomorrow.
There is nervousness, anxiety and on the streets of Edinburgh fuelled by an atmosphere unlike anything seen before in recent UK politics.
