Nicola Sturgeon said she hoped people would seize the "once in a lifetime opportunity for Scotland" in next year's independence vote.
Scotland's Deputy First Minister was asked about opinion polls and the finances of a split, exactly a year before voters take part in the referendum.
She told Jo Coburn on the Daily Politics: "I love England, but I don't want decisions taken in Westminster by Tory governments."
