Scottish independence: Blue & Green readers’ view

244

In perfect symmetry the share of Blue & Green readers in Scotland who want to see it as an independent nation matches those who don’t elsewhere. ‘Yes to independence’ for our readers in Scotland and ‘no to independence’ for our readers elsewhere.

Our flash poll saw 167 readers vote. Of those who live in Scotland 59% would vote yes to Scotland being an independent country and 41% would vote no. Elsewhere 41% would vote yes to Scotland being an independent country and 59% would vote no.

While our Scottish readers see independence as their future, the majority of the rest don’t want them to leave the Union.

We trust our Scottish friends and neighbours, readers and supporters will make the right decision. We can only applaud them for creating one of the most compelling and nail-biting democratic debates of a generation.
