UK opposition leader to Scots Spurn a breakaway because PM Cameron is on way out

LONDON (Reuters) - Ed Miliband, the leader of Britain's opposition Labour party, will tell Scots on Thursday to reject independence in a referendum later this month, promising he will win a national election next year and give them the change they crave. Seeking to tap into a dislike of Prime Minister David Cameron's right-leaning Conservative party in Scotland, where it has just one of 59 UK parliamentary seats, Miliband will say Cameron is set to lose a May 2015 election and that his own left-leaning party will give Scotland new powers and policies. #facebook #United States #Brazil #France #markets #Italy #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico #Ukraine #opinion #conservatives
