Paul urges Scotland to vote NO to partition

Hot off the presses from The Guardian | The Observer:
Paul McCartney has become the latest celebrity to call for Scotland to stay part of the United Kingdom ahead of the independence referendum.
Paul made the declaration as the Let's Stay Together campaign sought support in Liverpool.
The campaign said about 50,000 people, including celebrities like Sir Paul, have put their names to an open letter to voters.
Sir Paul added his name to an open letter to voters which says: "The decision on whether to leave our shared country is, of course, absolutely yours alone. Nevertheless, that decision will have a huge effect on all of us in the rest of the United Kingdom. We want to let you know how very much we value our bonds of citizenship with you, and to express our hope that you will vote to renew them. What unites us is much greater than what divides us. Let's stay together."
Sir Paul's signature and those of tens of thousands of people from all over the country, shows that English, Welsh and Northern Irish people hope passionately that the Scottish vote to renew their bonds of citizenship with us. "The decision is for the Scottish voters alone. Let's Stay Together simply want them to know that we hope that they will stay part of our shared country."
Scottish Labour MP Anne McGuire, speaking of behalf of the pro-Union Better Together group, said: "It is hardly surprising that Sir Paul wants us to Come Together: "Maybe rather than trying to take us all on a Magical Mystery Tour Alex Salmond should just Let it Be."
