Stories involving Michael Moore

Labour must 'fight for Scotland'

Labour must "fight for Scotland" and apologise for past mistakes, the leader of the Scottish Labour Party will say today. In a speech to the party's Scottish Conference, Johann Lamont will say Labour "got the kind of beating we deserved" at the last elections, and will urge supporters to "re-build" the party. The Liberal Democrats are also holding their Scottish conference this weekend, with Scottish Secretary Michael Moore expected to tell his party that Scotland should be allowed to decide its future in "500 days after the independence consultations close rather than the 1,000 day plan announced by the SNP at its consultation launch".

No.10 signals PM to meet Salmond
Moore sets out Scotland referendum plan

Scottish Secretary Michael Moore has unveiled dramatic new plans to fast-track the Scottish independence referendum to 2013.

Mr Moore today released a referendum timetable that he said meets all legal requirements and will allow Scots to vote on independence in September 2013, a year earlier than the Scottish Government proposes.

He said: "No one has yet explained to me why the people of Scotland should have to wait nearly three years to make the most important decision we will ever make. It is not in the interests of the Scottish people to buildup uncertainty and make them wait.

"The timetable I have produced today shows there is no good reason for the Scottish Government’s go slow approach. We can follow all theproper procedures and parliamentary processes and still have a referendum in September 2013."


SNP hits out at Moore on referendum

The Scottish National Party has hit out at Scottish Secretary Michael Moore after he said a successful referendum on the country's independence would require a second UK-wide poll.
