He stated the occasion has “proactively made an effort to change the tone” of its politics in Scotland, including there might be “less of the division, less of the us versus them, less of the shouting down, ‘who truly loves our country, who truly doesn’t’” going ahead.

“We’re all Scottish, we all love Scotland, we all want what’s best for Scotland,” he stated.
