Brown To Unveil Labour Indy Strategy

Former prime minister Gordon Brown will speak today at the launch of a distinct Labour campaign to keep Scotland in the United Kingdom.

The Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath MP will be in Glasgow to help unveil the United with Labour drive, which distances the party from Tory and Liberal Democrat colleagues in the pro-Union Better Together movement.

Scottish party leader Johann Lamont and her deputy, the MP Anas Sarwar, will also take part in setting out a ``different view'' of Scotland's future at the event in the Emirates Arena. 

Mr Sarwar, who is campaign co-ordinator, said: ``In the debate over the coming months there will be a number of voices all making the case for Scotland working together as part of the United Kingdom. 

But one voice that must be heard is the Labour voice - and I am determined that in this campaign it will be heard. 

``That is why I am delighted Gordon Brown is speaking today at the launch of United with Labour.
