Yorkshire moving in on the County Championship title and Bradley

:00:00.:00:00.

Wiggins reveals his chances of retaining the two Britain

:00:00.:00:10.

championship have gone `` the Tour of Britain.

:00:11.:00:18.

Joining me from Inverness is broadcaster and journalist, Nicky

:00:19.:00:25.

Marr, and with me in the studio is Professor of Law at Pepperdine

:00:26.:00:28.

Let's get straight down to it, we will start with the Daily Telegraph.

:00:29.:00:40.

The front page, economic fears that stop to the Salmond bandwagon. Nikki

:00:41.:00:46.

in Inverness, this is coming on the same evening, in the last few

:00:47.:00:50.

minutes, that RBS has suggested it is likely to announce it will shift

:00:51.:00:55.

its centre operations from Edinburgh down to London. That is a real

:00:56.:01:00.

shock. The Daily Telegraph and most front pages have gone to print too

:01:01.:01:07.

early to get the story. It is a worry, RBS, taxpayer owned bank, we

:01:08.:01:13.

know the story of Fred the shred and this is not the time to rehash that

:01:14.:01:17.

but it is a worry for jobs in Scotland. The story is that this

:01:18.:01:24.

opinion poll shows 53% for no and 47% for yes, but still ten

:01:25.:01:30.

undecided, 10% of Scots undecided and I think that is the key to wear

:01:31.:01:34.

this referendum is going to be decided. Indeed, the 10% undecided,

:01:35.:01:43.

do you think that the emotional push made by Cameron, Clegg and Miliband

:01:44.:01:44.

will have an effect? I was what side of the political

:01:45.:01:55.

referendum people were sitting on, yes, no, on the fence, there was a

:01:56.:02:00.

bit of ridicule from all sides at the fact that these three leaders

:02:01.:02:06.

have realised something is happening in Scotland, they have put up the

:02:07.:02:09.

saltire and Russian to Scotland to make an emotional plea `` rushed to

:02:10.:02:17.

Scotland. I little bit condescending and patronising as it "the Scots

:02:18.:02:21.

will never vote for independence" and quite a view our thinking that

:02:22.:02:26.

they might. It is a heart and head matter and that is why so many of us

:02:27.:02:30.

are undecided. I count myself among them. It is a case of what we want

:02:31.:02:38.

to happen against whether we believe what Salmond is calling the

:02:39.:02:42.

scaremongering of quite a few big guns. Unfortunately we will have to

:02:43.:02:48.

lose you in Inverness but we are going to be back. Gutted! Questions

:02:49.:02:56.

will be asked. Hopefully we can talk to you in an hour. I will be here.

:02:57.:03:02.

Thank you. Colleen, you are flying solo. I have time to tell Nicky to

:03:03.:03:10.

vote no because the scaremongering is actually a reality check and I

:03:11.:03:15.

thought that Danny Alexander, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, did

:03:16.:03:19.

an excellent job. His is the key story in the Daily Telegraph where

:03:20.:03:23.

he mentions that this is the day that the economic case the

:03:24.:03:28.

separation died. It is clear that the reality of Independence is that

:03:29.:03:32.

it will cost jobs, investment and growth. That was always a

:03:33.:03:37.

possibility, that Lloyds and RBS may shift. They might, but now we are

:03:38.:03:44.

seeing it. Those who are leaning towards voted yes say that they have

:03:45.:03:50.

factored it in an David Cameron has made it clear that he believes

:03:51.:03:54.

Scotland could survive on its own. We are also seeing the big guns,

:03:55.:04:01.

Mark Carney, BP, and others, and we have a mortgage story coming up,

:04:02.:04:09.

indicating the reality, money saying `` many saying that there has not

:04:10.:04:12.

been enough concrete information about what will happening

:04:13.:04:17.

financially. When you have what we are seeing, property prices dropping

:04:18.:04:21.

and individuals selling their property saying that they are

:04:22.:04:26.

putting a clause, only if there is a no vote, that is serious. People who

:04:27.:04:33.

make economic decisions are saying that they need a no vote. The

:04:34.:04:38.

Financial Times, the big guns wading in as a new poll backs the no camp,

:04:39.:04:46.

a reference to the opinion poll this evening putting the no camp ahead by

:04:47.:04:51.

six points. You are saying that the economic tyres are hitting the road

:04:52.:04:56.

now and this is going to be waking people up in Scotland to the full

:04:57.:04:59.

ramifications potentially of a yes vote. I think that the big guns

:05:00.:05:05.

didn't want to wade into early because they thought it might be

:05:06.:05:10.

scaremongering. Although there has been a lot of talk about no

:05:11.:05:16.

sterling, not being in the EU. There was no reality that this could

:05:17.:05:19.

actually happen but now when you have Mark Carney, the governor of

:05:20.:05:24.

the Bank of England, coming out with a strong statement, and you have Bob

:05:25.:05:28.

Dudley, that BP Chief Executive, saying clearly that the North Sea

:05:29.:05:34.

oil does not have a future and that the best is to have the integrity of

:05:35.:05:40.

the UK for there to be oil resources and for Scotland to count on having

:05:41.:05:45.

a Norway moment when they will have a surplus of oil, none of the

:05:46.:05:52.

experts are predicting that. There are experts on big oil in Scotland

:05:53.:05:56.

who would say that there is plenty. The debate about whether or not

:05:57.:06:00.

North Sea oil is going to run out over the next 30 years has been

:06:01.:06:06.

running for a long time. They know the economic ratification is of

:06:07.:06:08.

independence and yet so many people are still leaning towards it. One of

:06:09.:06:14.

the big guns, Sir Ian Woods, an industry veteran, saying

:06:15.:06:19.

specifically that the energy industry is going to be hurt if

:06:20.:06:27.

Scotland votes yes. Let's go to the daily record. Alex's Black

:06:28.:06:34.

Wednesday. Exclusive poll gives the yes camp a 6`point mountain to climb

:06:35.:06:41.

in the last week. Some are saying that the yes campaign peaked too

:06:42.:06:44.

early, but Alex Salmond says that isn't the case. Perhaps that's

:06:45.:06:50.

exactly what happened, the yes campaign gained such momentum. If

:06:51.:06:57.

that had happened closer to the vote maybe it would take off but at this

:06:58.:07:02.

stage, I think it was Danny Alexander who put the Black

:07:03.:07:09.

Wednesday figure in our minds. He alluded to this being similar to

:07:10.:07:13.

when Britain fell out of the exchange rate mechanism in 1990, and

:07:14.:07:17.

that this is Alex Salmond's Black Wednesday. The trend for the yes

:07:18.:07:23.

camp since mid August has been that it has been increasing its support

:07:24.:07:29.

and that has continued. You are saying that has come to an end with

:07:30.:07:36.

this poll? We'll see. It looked like the campaign was gaining momentum.

:07:37.:07:41.

So this poll is very important. Is there enough time for them to regain

:07:42.:07:46.

momentum when you have a show of force with all three leaders coming

:07:47.:07:51.

to Scotland? It may have stopped it. Sure. You are a former State

:07:52.:07:55.

Department official and we have heard various people in the no

:07:56.:08:02.

campaign talking about what it would mean for the UK on the international

:08:03.:08:06.

stage if Scotland split from the union. What do you think? I think

:08:07.:08:12.

looking at Scotland's position globally, within the United

:08:13.:08:17.

Kingdom, the UK is number three in the population of the U, after

:08:18.:08:23.

Germany and France. If Scotland is separate, their population is about

:08:24.:08:30.

5,300,000, putting them behind Slovakia and slightly ahead of

:08:31.:08:36.

Croatia. AI independent countries. Alex Salmond believes that the

:08:37.:08:43.

would`be part of the EU. You want to have an impact as a nation and one

:08:44.:08:47.

of the things that would happen for Scotland to break away, the UK,

:08:48.:08:53.

instead of being number three in population and in force, it would be

:08:54.:08:58.

like Croatia without the sunshine. That is number one. Number two, is

:08:59.:09:03.

Scotland thinking through the ramifications, how many hundreds of

:09:04.:09:07.

thousands of Scots are in England and Wales who would become

:09:08.:09:12.

foreigners? They have thought about that and they are still thinking

:09:13.:09:18.

about yes. Will they have eight Embassy in every country? Many

:09:19.:09:20.

don't, they are deferring to the EU. But it would not have the nuclear

:09:21.:09:37.

deterrent it does not want. But what will they had to defend themselves?

:09:38.:09:44.

They would not have NATO. There are a number of countries in NATO that

:09:45.:09:50.

don't... Scotland would not be able to be part of NATO with their

:09:51.:09:59.

current adversity to nuclear deterrence. I suspect Alex Salmond

:10:00.:10:03.

will disagree with that. At the bottom we have Obama prepares to

:10:04.:10:10.

step up US role. A big speech tonight. 2am. I'm sure you will be

:10:11.:10:16.

up for it. I'll just be getting home. He has got a lot to cover in

:10:17.:10:21.

this speech because he has been saved quite some time that we don't

:10:22.:10:25.

want to get in Syria, but it looks like that is what is going to

:10:26.:10:30.

happen. He's also likely to say he does not need Congressional

:10:31.:10:33.

approval. Unlike the big chemical weapons in Syria, he will say I'm

:10:34.:10:39.

going to take the action on this without turning to Congress. We need

:10:40.:10:48.

to hear from him that he is going to defeat ISIS and ISIL and there has

:10:49.:10:55.

to be some sort of land for a post Assad Syria. Some would argue he

:10:56.:11:08.

made the wrong call on that one, in Syria. Once bitten, twice shy. He's

:11:09.:11:13.

going to make it clear he doesn't need Congressional support, but does

:11:14.:11:18.

have public backing after the beheading of those two American

:11:19.:11:22.

journalists. Strong backing. It was a misstep when he said they did not

:11:23.:11:27.

have a strategy. There has been a scramble to make up for that and

:11:28.:11:33.

tomorrow is a symbolic day, 9/11. It will have that impact as well. Very

:11:34.:11:48.

nice to see you. We'll be back in an hour. Stay with us here now on BBC

:11:49.:11:54.

news because at the top of that hour while we will have much more on the
