Nationalist leader says Scots tricked out of independence

MANCHESTER England (Reuters) Defeated Scottish nationalist chief Alex Salmond accused Britain's political leaders on Sunday of tricking Scots out of independence after a dispute about how and when to give them more powers. Salmond, who is stepping down as leader of the proindependence Scottish National Party (SNP) after failing to persuade Scots to leave the United Kingdom, accused Britain's three main political parties of winning last Thursday's referendum by 5545 percent by making a false promise of new powers. "I think the vow was something cooked up in desperation for the last few days of the campaign and I think everyone in Scotland now realises that," said Salmond, referring to a pledge by Prime Minister David Cameron and other leaders before the vote to rapidly expand Scottish autonomy in the event of a "No" #facebook #United States #China #Business #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #conservatives
