Ed Miliband joined up with the pro-UK Better Together campaign in an attempt to persuade Labour voters to keep Scotland within the UK.

This mission becomes particularly poignant due to Labour’s strength in numbers north of the border. Losing the Scottish proportion of the vote could have big effects at Westminster elections, leading some to argue that it would consign the south to perpetual Tory rule. Not a proposition a budding Prime Minister like Ed Miliband will want to have to face up to.
