Similarly, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond has partly made the case for a "Yes" vote being about ridding Scotland of Conservative government.
And his deputy, Nicola Sturgeon, has accused PM David Cameron of "struggling to locate that part of his anatomy" which would see him go head-to-head with Mr Salmond in a TV debate. (Ms Sturgeon's advisers assured me at the time she was referring to the prime ministers "guts". Or lack of)
Claim and counterclaim
Scotland's economic health has been a hot topic in the campaign
How much better off will people in Scotland be? Will public services be better or worse? What does Scotland need to be an international player?
These are all questions the two sides have sought to answer with a dazzling array of figures.
And not content with punting their own views, the two sides resorted to attacking each other for dodgy sums.
Mr Salmond said the Treasury's calculations had been "blown to smithereens" because they'd already been caught cooking the books, while Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander accused SNP ministers of offering voters a "bogus bonus" because their version hadn't taken all the factors into account.
Expect plenty more stats chat in the weeks ahead, as the campaigns continue to seek to put forward their economic arguments.
The prospect of a stronger Scotland within the UK has formed a key part of their argument, but the SNP government has questioned their ability to deliver and says the nation needs real independence.
'Mibbes Aye, Mibbes Naw'
Both sides of the campaign have been going after undecided voters
If you are an undecided voter, the campaign machines are coming your way.
Those who have yet to decide whether their "X" is going beside "Yes" or "No" are hugely influential because they're open to persuasion - and polling data for the last few months indicates "don't knows" make up anywhere between 12% and 29% of the electorate.
Supporters of the Union have also looked to history.
During a time which has seen big world war commemoration events, David Cameron used a conference speech to pay tribute to a Scottish ancestor, Captain John Geddes who died in battle in 1915, but showed "extraordinary heroism" in representing Britain standing together "when the chips were down".
And what might the two sides of the campaign make of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, being held this summer in Glasgow?
It is one of those international events in which Scotland competes in its own right.
But if you're heading to any sporting events in Glasgow between the end of July and the start of August, expect to at least see a few Yes Scotland and Better Together flyers.
Barack Obama made an unexpected intervention in the debate over Scotland's future
As one-time US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld once noted: "There are known knowns, there are things that we know that we know. We also know there are known unknowns, that is to say we know there are some things we do not know.
"But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know."
The referendum campaigns may well be planning every last second of their strategies, but not knowing who might be next to put their head above the parapet will keep them on their toes right up until polling day.
An animal charity has appealed for help in tracing the owner of an emaciated dog that was found straying in Glasgow.
The male and tan crossbreed, thought to be about 12 months old, was spotted in poor condition in the city centre on Monday 2 March.
He is now being looked after at the Scottish SPCA's rescue and re-homing centre in Cardonald, where staff have named him Archie.
The charity aims to find Archie a new home when he fully recovers.
The first news conference of the Dave King era at Rangers is over. We'll now be going back to news updates from across Scotland.
"We need less of a manager and more of a coach," adds King. "We're not going out to buy a new team and ask someone to manage them. It takes a different type of manager. We need to be very smart."
King says it may be favourable in the long-run to delist from the stock exchange as such a move comes with less costs and would effectively allow them to have more freedom.
King says he envisages that "more than 50%" of the initial investment of more than £20m he said was needed would go on the club's infrastructure such as scouting and building maintenance.
"Promotion is going to be challenging this year," Mr King adds. "We are hoping that with the energy from the fans, things will improve.
"Hopefully they can get across the line. In year two, with improved cash flow they will have a squad that can take them up."
Asked whether Ibrox legend and former manager Ally McCoist had a future at the club, Mr King says: "In terms of the new manager, you want to take your time and get it right. We'll now need to sit down with Ally McCoist and see what his plans are."
"It is important that we look closely at these given the concerns that have been raised," adds King.
King: "If I'm deemed not to be fit and proper than I will remain a supporter and investor and stay involved from the sidelines."
Murray describes the 85% vote across the board as a "pretty strong mandate".
"Now that the meeting is over we can formally engage with the new Nomad [nominated stockmarket advisor]," says King. "My indication from the Nomad is that if I confirm that we were successful then they will start formally engaging on Monday and the process can take four weeks."
King says: "There was a great danger that if this thing continued that there could have been a lost generation of Rangers fans. We want to take Rangers back to where it was. We want to restore the value system at the club."
New director Paul Murray says one of the main priorities is simply to stabilise things.
"We'll go to Murray Park [the training ground] to talk to the staff," he says. "They need reassurance. We're going to take our time and do the right thing."
King tells reporters Rangers is broken in many areas - pretty much everything has to be looked at. Information gathering has to be part of our immediate priority, he adds.
The news conference at Ibrox is now under way.
Fans group Rangers First spokesman Ricki Neill said: "Rangers First members voted in favour of Dave King's general meeting resolutions so we are delighted with the confirmation there is a change at boardroom level at last.
"Our club has been abused by those only interested in themselves for long enough and the rehabilitation of Rangers begins today with the appointments of Dave King, Paul Murray and John Gilligan.
"The Rangers supporters have voiced their discontent at the way the club has been run in recent years but we are confident the new board will treat the club and supporters with the respect they deserve after years of being taken for granted."
King's plan is for Paul Murray to act as interim chairman while he satisfies the Scottish Football Association and financial regulators that he is a fit and proper person to run the club.
His previous directorship with Rangers and his troubles with South African tax authorities represent challenges he must overcome if he is to be in charge at Ibrox.
Douglas Park also appointed to the board
Speaking to supporters outside Ibrox, King said: "We've come a long road and the Rangers fans have suffered for too long now. What happened today is something that couldn't be understated. This is a turning point in the future of the football club.
"It's a long road but it's a clear road. We want to work with the fans. We'll look to get fan representation on the board."
The new men in control at #Rangers
Dave King, speaking to reporters at Glasgow Airport last night, estimated that it would take £20m over the next two years to lift Rangers to second spot in the Scottish game. He also acknowledged that the club is in many ways broken and that it will take a long time to compete again with Celtic.

The case has been now designated as "removal with consent".
The Scottish Human Rights Commission will today tell the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva that action on climate change "must put justice and equity at the heart of responses".
Commission chair, Professor Alan Miller, will deliver a statement calling for climate justice to be integrated into the UN Sustainable Development Goals and international climate negotiations due to end in Paris at the end of the year.
MSPs are to be given a further opportunity to question senior police officers about the controversial policy of deploying some armed police on routine duties.
It follows yesterday's meeting of Holyrood's Justice sub-committee on policing which had to be curtailed for lack of time.
The committee heard there had been more than 1,600 occasions since October that armed officers had engaged with the public at non-firearms incidents.
The chief constable previously told MSPs that armed response officers would only be sent to firearms incidents, or when there was a threat to life.
The Lysblink Seaways, which was carrying paper from Belfast to Norway, ran aground near Ardnamurchan Point last month.
It was later refloated and anchored in Scallastle Bay in the Sound of Mull.
The 394ft-long (120m) vessel was towed about 172 miles (277km) down the west coast.
Right, with the Rangers EGM now well and truly over, we're leaving full-on live coverage of events at Ibrox for now.
We will, of course, keep you updated with developments throughout the day.
Shareholders in Rangers International Football Club have voted on resolutions put forward by Dave King as he seeks to oust the current board.
Watch King being cheered into the EGM at Ibrox Stadium.
David Sky: Except #GarryKing a new board do not have to continue down the road of taking a new loan from Cashley do they?
Bob, Aberdeen: Yes the hard work certainly begins now. Let's hope Mr King lives up to his name. It's going to be hard work both on and off the field. All the best though.
Rangers fans are waiting for news that a new board has been put in control of the club. Confirmation of the EGM results are not expected until this afternoon.
Stock Exchange announcement expected in next couple of hours. Might only see Dave King after that. @BBCSportScot
David Melville: How can these two Ashley puppets expect any kind of pay off? If I don't do my job properly in get sacked. Only in football do you get rewarded for failure.
Kevan O' Neill: I think you should tell the Rangers fans that 10m loan plus another 20m adds up to 30m. King spinning already - maybe the SA judge was right about him.
Matt: Am I being cynical, or does 'results to be announced later' mean that the board weren't voted off after all, but they won't announce that till the crowd has dispersed?
Waiting outside Ibrox for Dave King to emerge. Hearing suggestions he may not emerge until after Stock Exchange announcement. @BBCSportScot
Murray, Duffy, Whyte, Miller, Ng, Kennedy, Green, Ashley, Easdale, Easdale, Sarver, Modi. Is this the day the madness stops at Ibrox?
An emotional moment for @SonsofStruth at today's #Rangersegm.
Garry King: #rangersegm Llambias and Leach voted off then put back on by Ashley next week as a condition of his loan? I can see that.
Colin Mathie: Well that was short + sweet.
John Boreland: #RangersEGM Monday is not good enough. It must be today, I don't have enough blood pressure medication let to keep me going till Monday.
After almost three years of growing calls for boardroom change at Rangers, the EGM takes less than 10 minutes to enact regime change (results later). Now for the hard work.
Don Gordon: Unbelievable that Rangers supporters applaud a convicted criminal and a manager who tried his level. Best to further bankrupt the club...some people will never learn.
Byers & Birrell: Can't believe the board haven't done the right thing and just stood down to save the club money.
#rangersegm Andrew Dickson closes meeting. Results to be published later.
Resolution 7: appointment of John Gilligan #rangersegm
Resolution 6: appointment of Paul Murray #rangersegm
Resolution 5: appointment of David King #rangersegm
David Leighton: After Leach and Llambias are voted off the board, Dave King should immediately dismiss them from their respective positions, the justification being that "they have not acted in the best interests of the company". If they want to take their dismissal to an employment tribunal then so be it.
Votes for removal of Derek Llambias and Barry Leach are taken, followed by those to appoint Dave King, Paul Murray and John Gilligan.
Resolution 4: removal of Barry Leach #rangersegm
Resolution 3: removal of Derek Llambias #rangersegm
Resolution two: removal of James Easdale. Having resigned, this won't be moved #rangersegm
Resolution one: removal of David Somers. Having resigned, this resolution won't be moved
Looks like no time is being wasted at Ibrox - they are going straight to the resolutions.
Philip Skelly: surely Dave King convicted of tax crimes in South Africa will fail fit and proper person test
Ally McCoist has just arrived #rangersegm to widespread applause.
So, after two aborted attempts to stage the Rangers extraordinary general meeting in London hotels, it's about to begin at Ibrox Stadium - where the fans wanted it to be held all along.
King. Murray and Gilligan take their seat at #rangersegm
Rangers shareholders cheer Dave King as he and others take their place for the EGM.
No gazebo today at Ibrox as the Rangers EGM is about to get under way.
We're going to focus on the events at Ibrox for the next while.
Rangers shareholder Dave King has arrived for the extraordinary general meeting that he says will launch a "new era" for the club.

Emma Moir: Unless you're in Aberdeen where you have to move because house prices are crazy.
Liz Chambers: Travel broadens the mind and outlook, hence the move abroad in the first place. Family draws you back more than anything else, so you return, but you find you have changed so much and the folks you knew when you were in your teens have remained the same. So you stay in the country and move home a wee bit further from where you were brought up, but maintain your close family connections, and make new friends. Wouldn't have done it any other way because it taught me so much about life and living.
