Trimble Turns Purple Again

David Trimble, the former Ulster Unionist leader, was speaking on the Daily Politics Show about the upcoming Scottish Referendum.

"If the referendum in Scotland goes in the way I regard as the wrong result, that will change the political context in Northern Ireland," he said.

Trimble added that "would cause strains".

"It would put what is now a non-issue [a possible referendum] into a major issue and it would be divisive, obviously."

On Thursday, 18 September, registered voters in Scotland will be asked the referendum question: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"

Those voters will have a straight choice between "yes" and "no".
