Don't break away - David Cameron's emotional plea for Scotland to remain part of the United Kingdom. Speaking at the site of the 2012 London Olympics, the British prime minister warned a vote for independence would undermine Britain's standing in the world. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, DAVID CAMERON, SAYING: "The best thing about the Olympics wasn't the winning, it was the red, the white, the blue. It was the summer that patriotism came out of the shadows and came into the sun. Everyone cheering as one, for team GB. And it's GB I want to talk about today. Our United Kingdom" Scots will decide in September whether to end the 300-year-old union. A "yes" vote would place the future of Britain's Scotland-based nuclear submarine fleet in doubt and potentially weaken the UK's claim to a permanent seat in the United Nations. Recent polls show only around a third of Scots are keen to break away. Cameron appealed to those in England and Wales to show their support for Scotland to stay. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, DAVID CAMERON, SAYING: "We would be deeply diminished without Scotland. This matters to all of our futures. And everyone in the UK can have a voice in this debate." Finance and currency-sharing arrangements if Scotland were independent have been a key focus. Scottish nationalists say a currency union would benefit both sides. The government says such a plan would be nearly unworkable. And sterling could be affected in the run up to the vote. Daragh Maher of HSBC. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FX STRATEGIST, DIRECTOR, HSBC, DARAGH MAHER, SAYING: "You bring in an extra layer of uncertainty then it's going to be short-term negative for sterling. But as I say, the medium term implications will depend on the details of what the setup would be post-independence or post the vote." Questions also remain over what would happen to Scotland's banks. The British Business Secretary says Royal Bank of Scotland would "inevitably" move its headquarters from Edinburgh to London, where it's protected against the risk of collapse. Britain pumped 45 billion pounds into RBS during the financial crisis, leaving taxpayers with an 81 percent stake in the bank. But RBS has strong emotional ties with Scotland, and has declined to comment on what its decision would be.
