Cameron confirms he will not resign if Scotland votes Yes

London: British Prime Minister David Cameron Wednesday said he will not quit his post if the result of the Scotland Independence Referendum, set to be held Thursday, is a “yes” in favour of independence.

"My name is not on the ballot paper. What's on the ballot paper is 'does Scotland want to stay in the United Kingdom, or does Scotland want to separate itself from the United Kingdom?' That's the only question that will be decided on Thursday night," he said.

"The question about my future will be decided at the British general election coming soon," Cameron told the media while visiting a factory in Fleet, southern England.

Several analysts have suggested that Cameron's situation will be difficult and that he might find himself forced to resign to take responsibility for having agreed in 2012 with Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond, to hold the referendum in the first place.

"Well, of course everyone who cares about our United Kingdom -- and I care passionately about our United Kingdom -- is nervous," he said, but stressed that the result of the referendum will be a “no”.

Cameron's remarks came after three new polls showed the “no” vote ahead by a slight margin. All Scottish people aged 16 and older are allowed to vote “yes” or “no” for Scotland's independence from the United Kingdom.
