By Guy Faulconbridge and Alistair Smout EDINBURGH (Reuters) - The fate of the United Kingdom remained unclear five days before a historic referendum on Scottish independence as three new polls on Saturday showed a slight lead for supporters of the union, but one saying the separatist campaign was pulling ahead. On the final weekend of campaigning, tens of thousands of supporters of both sides took to the streets of the capital Edinburgh and Scotland's largest city, Glasgow. At stake is not just the future of Scotland, but that of the United Kingdom, forged by the union with England 307 years ago. The economic future of Scotland has become one the most fiercely debated issues in the final weeks of impassioned debate.
