The Prime Minister should not resign if Scotland votes for independence, Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps has said.
Asked if David Cameron should stand down in the event of a ‘Yes’ vote, Tory Party Chairman Mr Shapps simply gave the one word answer: “No.”
The defence of the Prime Minister’s position came as it was suggested a letter of no confidence in Mr Cameron had been drafted in the event of a decision to cast out the 1707 Act of Union between Scotland and England.
Mr Cameron, Labour leader Ed Miliband and Lib Dem chief Nick Clegg were in Scotland frantically begging Scots to snub independence.
Opinion polls have put the result on a knife edge.
