Darling hosts anti-Scottish independence summit
Former chancellor Alistair Darling confirmed this morning that he has been hosting cross-party talks on stopping Scottish independence.
Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show on BBC One, Mr Darling said he had held several such meetings over the last few months, explaining "there will be a campaign to persuade people that we're better remaining in the UK".
The Mail on Sunday reports that a recent gathering included Downing Street director of political strategy Andrew Cooper, Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander, Shadow Defence Secretary Jim Murphy and former Scottish Conservative leader David McLetchie, along with Euan Roddin, special adviser to Liberal Democrat Scottish Secretary Michael Moore.
Mr Darling said anti-independence campaign will involve people from all political parties as well as "people of no party".
