22nd poll in a row showing support for Scottish Independence

Miss Dolly

“The SNP remain on course for a majority at the Scottish Parliamentary election in May, according to a new STV News/Ipsos MORI poll.

However, support for the party has slipped slightly, with the ongoing Alex Salmond inquiry making some voters think twice.

Backing for Scottish independence has also fallen in the latest poll – although 52% of the most likely voters said they would back separation from the rest of the UK.

Scotland goes to the ballot box on May 6, with the poll projecting that the SNP will win 72 of the 129 seats – nine more than now and giving them a majority of 15.”

It’s an average. It’s a steady number. The STV conducted this polling by the average from November’s poll last year. I’d say Independence is between 52-55%, that is not start of the campaign.

My opinion is that the world is better when borders are coming down, not going up. Having said that, there are arrangements that don't feel as much like a border, and Scotts seem to be people who follow politics and can obviously figure for themselves what's best.  :vegas:

That is why an independent Scotland would join the EU. They would be no hard border between Scotland and England, the lack of border goes back beyond the creation of the union in 1707

 Of course there will need to be a border between the UK and Scotland if Scotland is in the EU, and the UK isn't. That's the point of the EU -  to create a bordered zone of economically, socially and legally united countries that cannot operate independently outside of said border.

The EU is nothing if its territory is borderless. It wouldn't be able to function.

They would NOT be a border. The common travel area has been in operation way before the creation of the EU. They may need to be a SOFT border aka showing passport but trade would still be able to happen.
