GLASGOW, Scotland, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Speaking in Glasgow, Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown urged his fellow Scots to vote to remain part of the United Kingdom in Thursday's independence referendum.
"The vote tomorrow is not about whether Scotland is a nation, we are," Brown proclaimed.
"Yesterday, today and tomorrow. Let us tell the undecided. The waverers. Those not sure how to vote. Let us tell them what we have achieved together."
Gordon went on to speak to nations of the union fighting for the same army in both world wars, and painted the United Kingdom as a model for multiculturalism and sharing, warning of "what sort of message" an independent Scotland would send to the world.
"There is not a cemetery in Europe that does not have Scots, English, Welsh and Irish lined side by side. We not only won these wars together, we built the peace together. What we have built together by sacrificing and sharing, let no narrow nationalism split asunder ever."
The former Labour Party leader had harsh words for those who support an independent Scotland, declaring, "This is our Scotland."
"Scotland does not belong to the Scottish National Party. Scotland does not belong to the Yes campaign. This is not their flag, their country, their culture, their streets."
