Support for independence dropping even further, down to 28%. Will only get worse for Salmond when the courts force him to stop hiding information.

Cue a chorus from VP and ED decrying polls and the biased rag that printed it. As usual. smile

I'll take donations at 10/1, as I'm probably better at investments than Uncle Bill.

PM me for bank details, don't bother, I won't need yours.

At least part of the issue of how an independent Scotland would be structured is not really a question that the SNP have the right to answer since there is no certainty my any stretch of the imagination that they will be in a position of power post-independence to make those decisions! All they can really honestly come up with are a range of potential options/ scenarios for who the country will be organised. There are, by definition, a lot of uncertainties and it is up to the electorate to decide what direction they want Scotland to take post independence.
That's a good point.

I'm not decrying that. I show a passing interest in the polls but that's it. Views are largely irellevant until information is published and campaigns start. And although The Scotsman isn't in favour of independenc it's still a decent read.

Quite disappointed in people who waste time and energy worrying about how to organise and independent Scotland. You'd be as well organising a Martian government.

Bill Hill's offer 7/1 for independence by 2020. Classic case of 'put a fiver on, and you'll get 0 back'.
Well lets see if anyone from the YES side is brave enough to put their money where their mouth is?

Individually polls mean little, the trend many show however, is unwise to ignore.

The steady reduction in support for independence is not because independence is inherently bad for Scotland, it is because of the way the SNP rides rough shod over facts and the electorate. Mark my words, it is the SNP that will cost Scotland independence, nothing else.

I don't deny that's a contributing factor but I think the year of 'Britishness' must also impact the general view.

Seriously? I'm pretty sure NZ have a strict immigration policy. Not sure they'll welcome a gun-toting drink driver with open arms wink
