Salmond votes ‘No’

ALEX Salmond has voted ‘No’ to Scottish independence.

The SNP leader cast his ballot this morning near his constituency home and then emerged from the polling station and gave a ‘thumbs up’ to the media.

When asked how he voted, Mr Salmond said: “I voted ‘no’ actually. Last minute change of heart, I suppose.

“The idea of independence is quite exciting, but at some point over the last couple of days I just thought, ‘it seems like a lot of bother’.”

He added: “I’m also a wee bit worried about my pension.”
