Quotes

"It is unbelievable that the No campaign is happy to accept these funds, and in light of these latest revelations Alistair Darling should at last do the decent thing and hand this donation back. The Taylor money was reportedly personally secured by Mr Darling, and if he does not hand this half-million pounds back, he is - as a former Chancellor - effectively condoning tax avoidance."

"We have consulted Police Scotland, who have been fantastic, and this third event will see male and female stewards present."
