I am in my last minute; I must continue.

I am convinced that the people of Scotland are not about to take such a leap into the dark. They will not put themselves into a situation in which their prosperity, the future of Scotland and its ethos, which is surely dear to all of us in the chamber, will be put at risk. As I said, the choice is stark. I do not know how the coming election will go, apart from the fact that the Conservatives will do much better.

I tell members this: a vote for the SNP and separation is a vote for the future of Scotland being damaged beyond belief.
