David Cameron ‘let out little cry of joy’ over David Bowie’s Scottish Independence speech at the BRIT Awards
Bowie finished his pre-written message, read out by Kate Moss, by saying, "Scotland, stay with us", in reference to the debate
The thought of David Cameron sat at home, engrossed by Katy Perry’s neon Eygpytian performance is a strange one indeed.
Bowie finished his pre-written message by saying, "Scotland, stay with us", in reference to the debate on Scottish Independence.
Although slight, the renowned singer’s reference hit the headlines the UK over. It even ended up being used by the pro-UK Better Together movement.
And Cameron couldn’t wait to share his happiness at the music icon’s intervention, claiming it could be just what was needed to sway alienated voters.
“I was watching the Brit Awards and when I saw Kate Moss leap to the stage and utter those words I have to say I did let out a little cry of joy,” Cameron said.
“I'm sure that maybe someone like David Bowie might be able to reach parts of Scotland that perhaps I can't.”
Scottish First Minister, Alex Salmond, also used Bowie’s statement as a point of reference during First Minister’s Questions last week.
The referendum on Scottish independence will be held on 18 September.
Voters will be asked the Yes/No question: “Should Scotland be an independent country?”
Chancellor George Osborne said in a statement recently: “If Scotland walks away from the UK, it walks away from the UK pound.”
The Scottish government are arguing that keeping the pound and the Bank of England services as part of a currency union under independence would make sense for both Scotland and the UK at large.
But Osbourne, Labour shadow chancellor Ed Balls and Liberal Democrat Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said they could not recommend the plan.
