Alex Salmond accuses UK party leaders of tricking Scotland into No vote | Politics | theguardian.com
"They're at loggerheads," Salmond told BBC1's Sunday Politics programme. "I think that their vow was cooked up in desperation from the last days of the campaign. I think everyone in Scotland now realises that. "Incidentally, [the] Yes campaign isn't surprised by this development. It's the people who were persuaded to vote no who were misled, who were gulled, who were tricked, effectively. They are the ones who are really angry." [...] Downing Street has dismissed Salmond's accusations, insisting the Scottish devolution timetable would be honoured. "Lord Smith of Kelvin has agreed to oversee the process to take forward the devolution commitments with powers over tax, spending and welfare all agreed by November and draft legislation published by January," a No 10 spokesman said. "This government has delivered on devolution and we will do so again." +!+!+!+ Salmond - bbc.in/1sU03so +!+!+!+ Ed Miliband - bbc.in/1AYZqCb +!+!+!+ Salmon on unelected House of Lords - bit.ly/1p9g8t3

Cameron and Miliband ditch devo timetable vow
via bit.ly/1rbwEvV || "Salmond revealed that in his telephone call to Mr Cameron after the referendum result was announced, he asked the Prime Minister if the UK Government would honour the pledge made to the Scottish people by Gordon Brown prior to the vote.  Something Mr Salmond said, was not confirmed by the PM. He said: "I spoke to the Prime Minister today and, although he reiterated his intention to proceed as he has outlined, he would not commit to a second reading vote by 27th March on a Scotland Bill. That was a clear promise laid out by Gordon Brown during the campaign. "The Prime Minister says such a vote would be meaningless. I suspect he cannot guarantee the support of his party." [...] The refusal to commit to new powers for Scotland prior to the next UK general election is in breach of the 'vow' made to the Scottish people days before the independence referendum. [...] Gordon Brown was said to have 'brokered a deal' with all three London parties."
