Scotland's Highland Games are a unique mix of culture, community and traditional competition. But there's an even bigger tug-of-war at play - on September 18, Scotland is set to vote on separating from the United Kingdom. And British Prime Minister David Cameron is pleading with Scots NOT to use the referendum as a protest vote. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, DAVID CAMERON, SAYING: "If you don't like me, I won't be here forever. If you don't like this government, it won't last forever. But if you leave the United Kingdom that will be forever." With an aggressive campaign underway, Scottish National Party leader Alex Salmond agrees a 'Yes' vote would be ever-lasting: (SOUNDBITE) (English) SCOTTISH NATIONAL PARTY LEADER, ALEX SALMOND, SAYING: "This is a one time in a lifetime opportunity and the evidence says that more and more people in Scotland are wanting to put Scotland's future into Scotland's hands." "Yes" voters say it's time for Scotland to choose its own leaders and rule itself, free of control from London and politicians they say ignore their views and needs. But David Cameron says if Scotland votes to stay united, additional powers will be allocated to the Scottish parliament - new powers over tax, spending and some welfare services to name a few. A desperate appeal to voters, mulling over their options.
