In his recent remarks, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has blamed Nicola Sturgeon for selling “false dream” of separation to the Scottish people as he claimed that it would most likely “fade” over time. Cameron reiterated that his party believes in the Union and confessed that it would now have to fight hard. Admitting that there is a nationalist appeal, Cameron also pointed out that there are “huge holes” in the separatists’ case over the economics of separation. Academic research has shown this was the main reason the Yes campaign lost in September, since when oil revenues have collapsed.
Meanwhile on the other hand, Labour Party leader Ed Miliband has mentioned during a radio interview that a Labour Government would block any move by Ms Sturgeon to stage a second referendum. The Labour leader alleged that he would hold her to the SNP’s promise before last September’s referendum that it was a “once-in-a-lifetime” event.
Mr Cameron explained that “I think this dream will fade. My view is she’s selling a dream, but it’s a false dream. She’s selling the dream of separation,” adding that “I can see there’s a nationalist appeal, but I profoundly believe we are so much better off as a United Kingdom. Sometimes in politics, dreams and visions can be terribly exciting and enthuse people. But when you go to the numbers … there are huge holes in her case.” He stated that “I think this dream will fade, but it’s going to take some time and the parties like mine that believe in the UK are going to have to fight very hard.”
