World - Scottish National Party driving Scotland to edge of independence

The Scottish National Party (SNP) has gone from being a fringe force to within touching distance of taking Scotland independent from Britain, its defining purpose, in 15 years. To most Scots, the party means two things -- First Minister Alex Salmond, the combative horse-racing fanatic who has led it on and off since 1990, and independence, at the party`s heart since its foundation 80 years ago. `They`re either going to win narrowly, which is just a possibility, or they`re going to poll so high that the union is never going be the same again,` said Gerry Hassan, an academic and leading commentator on Scottish politics. The opening of the Scottish Parliament in 1999 under Britain`s then prime minister Tony Blair gave the SNP its big boost.

World - Cook vows to carry on to cricket World Cup

England captain Alastair Cook insisted he still wanted to lead the side at the World Cup despite conceding the team`s chances of triumphing at next year`s tournament were `far-fetched` following another mauling by India. The reigning world champions inflicted a humiliating nine-wicket defeat upon England in the fourth one-day international at Edgbaston on Tuesday to take an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series. India dismissed England for just 206, a total that owed much to number seven Moeen Ali`s 67. Defeat saw England suffer a fifth loss in their last six ODI series.

World - Second poll shows jump in support for Scottish independence

A second poll showed support for Scottish independence rising less than three weeks from the historic referendum, more than halving the lead of the anti-independence camp on Monday. The YouGov poll found 47 percent of respondents would vote `Yes` to independence, compared to 53 percent who would vote `No`, excluding `undecideds`. The results were identical to a Friday poll by Survation, which had showed the `Yes` campaign had gained ground after a strong performance from pro-independence leader Alex Salmond in a TV debate. The gap in support between the two camps more than halved to six points from a 14-point `No` camp lead in a YouGov poll in mid-August.

World - Pro-independence Scots narrow gap to victory ahead of vote: poll

Support for Scottish independence rose dramatically in August, a poll showed on Monday, leaving the `Yes` campaign just six points behind advocates of staying in the United Kingdom with 17 days to go until a referendum. Pro-independence leader Alex Salmond dominated the second debate last week, having failed to win the first one. A poll for the Sun and the Times newspapers showed support for the pro-independence `Yes` campaign had risen to 47 percent, a four point gain since mid-August and up eight points since the start of the month. The lead of the `No` campaign to reject independence has slumped to 6 points from 22 points at the start of August.

World - Scottish nationalist leader dismisses claim of sinister campaign tactics

By William James LONDON (Reuters) - The leader of Scotland`s pro-independence campaign Alex Salmond on Sunday dismissed an accusation that grassroots supporters had used `organized street mobbery` to try to silence a series of street debates hosted by an opposition lawmaker. The two sides in debate over Scotland`s future have been trading barbs ahead of a Sept. 18 vote on whether to become an independent state, or to keep the country`s 307-year-old union with England and Wales intact. A poll last week showed that support for independence had risen after a televised debate, although surveys still show a lead for the `Better Together` anti-independence campaign. The accusations of intimidation came from Jim Murphy, a member of the British parliament who last week suspended a tour of Scottish towns designed to promote the case for Scotland to remain part of the United Kingdom.
