Scotland Gordon Brown could be the winner in the event of a no vote

Gordon Brown, in pole position in the event of a no vote to be hailed as the man who saved the union, has crafted a detailed plan for a post-referendum constitutional settlement in the UK, including a new role for an elected House of Lords as an arbiter in disputes between the four nations.

He wants the entrenchment of the Scottish parliament, a codification of the purpose of the UK and a power-sharing partnership that he describes as home rule within the UK.
