    SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE: POLL SHOWS YES VOTERS SWITCHING TO SUPPORT THE UNION


    There is greater strength of support among Scots for staying in the UK than leaving, according to a poll commissioned by a pro-independence organisation.

    The Progress Scotland survey found 37% of voters ‘completely support Scotland staying part of the UK’, compared to 26% who ‘completely support Scotland becoming independent’.

    SNP Deputy leader Keith Brown insisted a growing number of Scots are ready to listen to the "progressive case" for independence, but pro-union leaders say the Yes campaign is losing support.

    The Survation poll was commissioned by Progress Scotland, headed up former SNP Westminster leader Angus Robertson, and surveyed 2000 Scots at the start of the month.

    It sought answers on a spectrum of 0-10 to identify strength of opinion on the issue, with 0 marking "complete" support for staying in the UK, while 10 was "complete" support for independence. A narrow majority (51%) were more supportive of the union, with 6% in the middle and 40% more supportive of independence.

    It also found 16% of voters who backed independence in the 2014 referendum now ‘completely" support Scotland staying part of the UK - compared to just 4% of 2014 ‘No’ voters who 'completely" support independence.

    Honest question chaps - how does Studgie go about getting another independence referendum? Is it something the Scottishist parliament has to agree or is it up to Westminster?
