Scottish independence: Brown launches 'United with Labour'


Former prime minister Gordon Brown said the anti-independence fight has to be based on a union for social justice with fairness at its core.

He made the comment during a speech in Glasgow to launch his party's United with Labour campaign.

The SNP's deputy leader Nicola Sturgeon had earlier dismissed Mr Brown's view that taxes would have to rise in an independent Scotland.

Voters in Scotland go to the polls on Thursday, 18 September, next year.
