Brown and Thatcher 'one on Union' (JAMES KIRKUP, 9/15/06, The Scotsman)

GORDON Brown has declared that he "stands with Margaret Thatcher" in defence of the Union between Scotland and England.

The Chancellor's public praise for the former Conservative prime minister's attitude to Scotland was scorned as "a betrayal" by the Scottish National Party.

Mr Brown's statement came as he steps up his attempts to woo English voters in support of his efforts to replace Tony Blair as prime minister next year.
