There is alarm in the UK that the union could fall apart when the Scottish go to the polls for a referendum on independence on September 18. That alarm was triggered after a survey suggested that nationalists are poised to win.

The spectre of a "Yes" vote is said to have dominated discussions between Queen Elizabeth and British Prime Minister David Cameron.

On Monday, the British government said it is not making contingency plans for the possibility that Scots will vote for independence, adding that its entire focus is on making the case for the UK to stay together.

But can Scots be convinced to stay in the Union this late in the game?
