SCOTLAND’S an amazing country. When I trialled for Hearts and Dundee United as a boy, I dreamed of playing football for her.
Whenever I pulled on the Scottish rugby shirt, I couldnât have been prouder.
No one can doubt my patriotism . Iâm a Scot through and through.
But Iâm also British. How I feel about Britain is how I feel about the British Lions.
Scots join with English, Welsh and Irish, and they all play for each other.
You can be proud of your home nation and proud of coming together too. Thereâs no contradiction.
What set the seal on this for me was getting married. Gabby represents everything thatâs best about Britain.
Her dad played football for Wales and Gabby was a gymnast for Wales in the Commonwealth Games. But she lives in England and now sheâs married to a Scotsman!
I donât want our twins to have to choose between being Scottish or Welsh. I want them to be both. I want them to be British.
Thereâs nothing like having kids to make you see how damaging a divorce can be.
Itâs always exciting to think about chucking things over and heading off on a new start.
But when you choose to walk out on your family, you are making a very serious decision.
You have to be sure youâre doing the right thing. There can be no turning back.
Over the past two months, Iâve sensed a real divide growing in Scotland. Iâm worried, if there is a divorce, that itâs going to be messy. Thatâs why I hope there wonât be one.
You have to work at a relationship. We can fix things so everyone is happy. Scotland can have new powers but stay in the Union.
Alex Salmond has been First Minister for seven years. When he complains that things in Scotland arenât as good as they should be, heâs basically running against his own record.
Heâs like a man trying to sell a car who wonât let you test-drive it. You just have to trust him when he says it will go.
Weâve achieved amazing things in the UK. At a time when things are starting to look really dangerous elsewhere, our country is stable and peaceful.
Itâs a place people from across the world want to come to. Iâm keen to keep it that way.
We can continue to grow and be better together. Thatâs why I hope Scotland votes No .
