'No' voters were 'tricked', says Alex Salmond
September 21 , 2014
Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister, said ‘no’ voters in Thursday’s independence referendum had been “tricked” by a late promise of greater devolution.
He accused the three main UK political leaders — David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg — of “reneging” on the promise.
Scottish voters rejected independence by 55% to 45%.
However, rejecting Salmond’s claims, Downing Street said the government had “set out a clear timetable” for devolution of powers to Scotland and all three major parties had made “clear commitments” on the issue.
