Similarly, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond has partly made the case for a "Yes" vote being about ridding Scotland of Conservative government.
And his deputy, Nicola Sturgeon, has accused PM David Cameron of "struggling to locate that part of his anatomy" which would see him go head-to-head with Mr Salmond in a TV debate. (Ms Sturgeon's advisers assured me at the time she was referring to the prime ministers "guts". Or lack of)
Claim and counterclaim
Scotland's economic health has been a hot topic in the campaign
How much better off will people in Scotland be? Will public services be better or worse? What does Scotland need to be an international player?
These are all questions the two sides have sought to answer with a dazzling array of figures.
And not content with punting their own views, the two sides resorted to attacking each other for dodgy sums.
Mr Salmond said the Treasury's calculations had been "blown to smithereens" because they'd already been caught cooking the books, while Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander accused SNP ministers of offering voters a "bogus bonus" because their version hadn't taken all the factors into account.
Expect plenty more stats chat in the weeks ahead, as the campaigns continue to seek to put forward their economic arguments.
The prospect of a stronger Scotland within the UK has formed a key part of their argument, but the SNP government has questioned their ability to deliver and says the nation needs real independence.
'Mibbes Aye, Mibbes Naw'
Both sides of the campaign have been going after undecided voters
If you are an undecided voter, the campaign machines are coming your way.
Those who have yet to decide whether their "X" is going beside "Yes" or "No" are hugely influential because they're open to persuasion - and polling data for the last few months indicates "don't knows" make up anywhere between 12% and 29% of the electorate.
Supporters of the Union have also looked to history.
During a time which has seen big world war commemoration events, David Cameron used a conference speech to pay tribute to a Scottish ancestor, Captain John Geddes who died in battle in 1915, but showed "extraordinary heroism" in representing Britain standing together "when the chips were down".
And what might the two sides of the campaign make of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, being held this summer in Glasgow?
It is one of those international events in which Scotland competes in its own right.
But if you're heading to any sporting events in Glasgow between the end of July and the start of August, expect to at least see a few Yes Scotland and Better Together flyers.
Barack Obama made an unexpected intervention in the debate over Scotland's future
As one-time US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld once noted: "There are known knowns, there are things that we know that we know. We also know there are known unknowns, that is to say we know there are some things we do not know.
"But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know."
The referendum campaigns may well be planning every last second of their strategies, but not knowing who might be next to put their head above the parapet will keep them on their toes right up until polling day.
The annual appeal on BBC Radio Orkney helped local postal workers deliver hundreds of cards with incomplete or no addresses.
The cards were read out by a member of Royal Mail staff, with listeners suggesting the intended recipient.
Royal Mail said its staff were too busy but agreed after BBC Scotland coverage.
Harry Rather: Moving the tapestry to Tweedbank is a ridiculous idea. There are many towns in the Borders dying because of ridiculous planning decisions. Look at Galashiels for example where all roads lead to Tesco at the expense of local traders. Why move the Tapestry to a housing estate? Because that's what Tweedbank is. Move it to more deserving place that's been around for hundreds of years. Selkirk, Gala or Hawick.
Wanda Gillespie: I would be very disappointed if the Tapestry were housed permanently in the borders as I think it should be kept in the central belt where it will be much easier for visitors to have access to it. Probably Stirling is a good place as it is so central or Edinburgh or Glasgow.
Police have arrested three people after they discovered cannabis growing inside a property in Duke Street, Glasgow.
They estimated that the find had a street value of more than £3,000. They also seized firearms from the property.
One man, aged 60, was arrested in connection with alleged firearms and drugs offences and two women, aged 37 and 34, were arrested in connection with alleged drugs offences.
The planned raid was carried out by officers from Glasgow's serious and organised crime team.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has called on her opponents to back her lobbying of the UK government for more action to back the oil industry, amid fears of a crisis in the North Sea sector.
Ms Sturgeon told the Scottish Parliament: "I would highlight three things - bolder action on reducing the supplementary charge, secondly, urgent action on the proposed new investment allowance and, thirdly, support for exploration.
"That's what the industry wants and I hope we can all get behind it."
The first minister said the Scottish government was doing all it could to back the energy sector with the powers it had, including providing support for innovation, investment and skills.
But deputy Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale said SNP ministers had failed to see the crisis coming because they "believed their own wishful thinking about oil prices".
The crash happened at 07:45 about a mile north of the Black Isle side of the Kessock Bridge
The incident caused tailbacks for a time.
There are no details at this stage of whether anyone was injured in the accident.
Angela, Helensburgh: My three girls live on homemade food. It can be quicker than ready meals and definitely tastier. I made four homemade pizzas last night and I was working all day. I find frozen chips and nuggets just don't fill them up compared to homemade.
Ian, Black Isle: With slow cookers and ovens that can be pre-set, all I hear is excuses not to cook real food. It's laziness plain & simple. There has never, ever been a place for ready meals in my house
David: I work away from home and my wife has recently just started working full time. We have three boys aged 8, 14 and 16. I generally run about all day cooking and cleaning. I've had to learn how to cook from scratch and to be honest quite enjoying it and surprised how easy it can be. When I'm away my wife cooks in bulk at nights or the weekends and freezes it; as long as you are organised you can manage no problem.
Is Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy about to bring back Blairism?
Barbara Craxton: Good Lord ! Yes by all means if you wish to throw away money at an astronomical rate then by all means feel free. To spend a cumulative £5m with such a low return in the hopes that people will travel to such a remote location in the hope that it will create a hub is in my opinion insane. I was born in Scotland and live in Vancouver BC Canada. I have no clue where this town you wish to place the tapestry is and the likelihood of me making the journey there is zero. However, if it was in Edinburgh or Glasgow it would be a destination on my list. This is a tapestry of huge historical significance, yes? So put it where it is most accessible to international as well as local tourists. It's hard to fathom there is even a question as to where it should be placed. Dumbfounded.
Mary Daykin: No way is Tweedbank right place unless serious double up for transport with Abbotsford. Could it not be at Abbotsford? There are no other tourist attractions at Tweedbank. Hawick is a good idea.
EB: It is a case of making this wonderful national piece of art available for view to the greatest number of people. It is obvious that a far greater number of Scots and foreigners will have the opportunity to see the tapestry if housed in either Edinburgh or Glasgow, may also quickly recover costs.

"Ice pancakes" the size of dinner plates have been found floating on the River Dee in Scotland.
The strange discovery was made by members of The River Dee Trust at a place called the Lummels Pool at Birse in Aberdeenshire.
River Dee Team biologist Jamie Urquhart said it was thought foam floating about on the water started to freeze and bump together, forming the discs.
The phenomenon can be found in rivers and in the open sea.
Mr Urquhart, who found and photographed the "pancakes", said: "What we think happened is this - foam floating about on the water started to freeze, probably at night.
A senior figure in the finance sector has warned that firms could move their legal headquarters out of Scotland due to continuing political uncertainty.
Jeremy Peat, the former chief economist of the Royal Bank of Scotland, says more should be done to retain highly-skilled, highly-paid jobs - even if headquarters are shifted.
He told Good Morning Scotland: "I think the risk continues broadly as it was, in many ways.
"I think if you are a financial service sector company selling products across the United Kingdom and there are risks that the regulatory environment will change in Scotland, that the legal environment may change you may prefer to have your formal head office in London or elsewhere in England in order to sell products to an English base."
About 25 firefighters tackled the overnight blaze at Mossvale Nursery in Paisley.
The alarm was raised just before 02:00, with crews bringing the fire under control at about 04:30.
Fire crews managed to contain the fire to one half of the nursery. The cause of the blaze at the Fullerton Street premises is not known.
Amy, Fife: As a nurse I have always been aware that I should support patients, regardless of religious beliefs (my own or the patient's) I have worked with Catholic and Muslim colleagues who are happy to assist patients whilst putting aside their own particular beliefs, and, as a non religious person, I have participated in assisting patients with their religious beliefs. As a professional we should leave our own beliefs in the changing room.
Lucy, Edinburgh: I agree with the Supreme Court decision, but was horrified to hear that the poor women seeking a medical termination are on the labour ward, making a difficult situation even worse.
Finance firms would have moved HQ from Scotland if 'Yes': may still do after 'No' as uncertainty goes on - Jeremy Peat
Most of Rangers' under-performing players are only at Ibrox for big-money salaries, according to the club's former striker Kevin Kyle.
The 33-year-old says some of his team-mates were earning more than £400,000 per year when he was at Ibrox in the bottom tier of the Scottish league.
"The majority of players who are there at Rangers are there for one reason and one reason only," said Kyle.
"And that's the money that was on offer to them."

Scottish Finance Secretary John Swinney has blamed any uncertainty around the financial sector on the Conservative government's proposal for an in-out referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union.
Mr Swinney also said he was "happy to reaffirm" the Scottish government's commitment to financial regulation being UK-wide.
He told BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme: "The points Jeremy Peat makes about common regulation are points we made during the referendum campaign, where our proposal was that we should work to maintain our financial services market across these islands.
"I have told business leaders the Scottish government, and for my part the Scottish National Party, would be firm supporters of maintaining the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union.
"We see the advantages of Scotland being a full participant in the European markets and what the EU referendum threatens to do is to jeopardise that direct relationship between Scottish companies and European markets."
