Brown calls for three 'guarantees' for Scotland
Gordon Brown is calling for three "guarantees" for Scotland to be "locked in" before voting takes place in the referendum on Thursday.
In a speech in Edinburgh later he will call for:
1. A permanent role for Scotland in the evolution of the UK:
The former prime minister has already argued that the UK is on course for major constitutional change even in the event of a No vote. He wants a guarantee that any future constitutional change will be made with Scotland's involvement. Some will fear that without such a guarantee, calls for more powers for England could be debated without Scotland being consulted.
2. A guarantee of fairness:
Ian Paisley: the Dr No who became Dr Yes
Loved and loathed, admired and feared, the life of the man known simply as "Big Ian" is the story of Northern Ireland's transition from violence to peace.
Some will remember him for a single word - "Never!" - rarely spoken, usually bellowed.
Cameron and Miliband do battle against rising Yes tide
Today we looked at a man who knows that his tombstone may read "the prime minister who presided over the break-up of Britain".
We listened to a man whose voice began to break as he made a plea for Scotland to stay.
Scotland - Yes or No to protect the NHS?
The Unionist parties in Scotland will claim today that they can guarantee that spending on the NHS will not be cut by the next government in Westminster.
They will argue that the new powers they are promising to give the Scottish Parliament in the event of a No vote will allow Holyrood to protect the NHS from another five years of austerity imposed from London.
Scotland - Vote No and get something better?
On the morning after the poll before, "Vote No and get something better" summed up George Osborne's message. It's a tried and trusted message which worked in the independence referendum in Quebec when a last minute poll lead for Yes was transformed into a narrow No. It is, though, a message with a difficult history in Scotland.
Thirty five years ago it was precisely what Scots were told when they were voting in a referendum on a much more modest proposal - to create a Scottish Parliament with some devolved powers.
Nato summit: Could Putin cross more 'red lines'?
For all the displays of military hardware, the promises to stand by Eastern Europe, the pledges to deploy more Nato forces there, it is the use of economic power, which according to Barack Obama and David Cameron has forced Vladimir Putin to back a deal to stop the fighting in Ukraine.
They insist that sanctions, including newly agreed measures targeting state-owned energy and defence companies, will go ahead until talk of a ceasefire is proven on the ground and is followed through with a peace plan that does not include the annexation of parts of Ukraine.
Pressure grows on Cameron amid hostage threat
A British hostage will be next to die. That was the clear and chilling message at the end of the latest horrific video produced by the brutal killers of the so-called "Islamic State".
It will have shocked many but it came as no surprise to the prime minister and his advisers who have long known about and been preparing for this prospect and not to the British media who agreed not to report the matter and have now agreed not to name the British hostage involved.
Douglas Carswell defection: the Europe 'bomb' goes off
This is a body blow for David Cameron.
When he became Tory leader, he told his party that they needed to stop obsessing about Europe.
Fighting will continue after debate
Two heavyweight bruisers locked together - both desperate to land a knock-out blow.
That, I fear, may be what sticks in the memory after Monday night's debate between Alex Salmond and Alistair Darling.
What's the PM's next move on Iraq?
There have been all too many acts of barbarism in Iraq and Syria in recent years.
What makes this dreadful act stand out from the rest is the fact that the murderer is almost certainly a British citizen and the victim is not just a journalist who sought to highlight suffering in the Middle East but a citizen of Britain's closest ally - the United States.
