Sir Paul McCartney has called for voters to keep Scotland in the UK.

The former Beatle, who lives in Peasmarsh, added his name to an open letter compiled by a host of showbiz and sports stars urging Scots to reject the calls for independence.

The 72-year-old also has a cottage on the Mull of Kintyre.

Others to have signed the list include Sir Mick Jagger, Sir Bruce Forsyth, Dame Judi Dench and Simon Cowell.

Scottish people will vote on independence on September 18.

The Referendum is a complete waste of time and money, regardless of the result.

Even a 'Yes' success won't mean the end of the Union.

I cannot understand why someone disagreed with your post.

A Yes result will only give Salmond grounds to begin negotiations with a view to leaving the Union.

Good grief - one of Stevo's new characters is now agreeing with another one. It's like being inside the mind of a demented goat.
