“I received this from fellow members in the Scottish Green Party who are hard campaigning for a YES vote in the coming 'freedom' referendum as it is becoming known in Scotland. It will indeed be great for them to break free from the dead hand of Westminster. Did anyone see Cameron's rather pathetic plea? Now the talk is of English regions wanting to break free as well. Together we can achieve the final end of the United Kingdom.

    http://tinyurl.com/qg7uc9w Scots overwhelmingly support continuing devolution within the United Kingdom over separation, a new poll confirms today. In a new survey of over 1000 Scottish adults by YouGov, commissioned by Better Together, 61% said they support devolution for Scotland within the UK. This included 32% who support further powers for the Scottish Parliament. Just 30% of those polled want Scotland to go it alone. The poll, commissioned to mark 25 years since John Smith's famous "settled will" speech at the first meeting of the Scottish Constitutional Convention, confirms that a strong Scottish Parliament with the back-up of a bigger United Kingdom remains the preferred option of Scots. New tax-raising and borrowing powers will be available to the Scottish Parliament in 2015 and each of the three pro-UK parties in Scotland are setting out plans for strengthening devolution before the referendum. In a further blow to the SNP, 35% of those who voted for Alex Salmond in the 2011 Scottish Parliament election support continuing the success of devolution rather than separating from the UK. A STRONGER Scottish Parliament within the United Kingdom remains the most favoured option among Scots ahead of the independence referendum, according to a poll. http://tinyurl.com/ngflgj6 Thirty-two per cent of Scottish adults want devolution inside the UK, but with more powers for the Scottish Parliament, a YouGov poll on behalf of the pro-UK Better Together campaign found. Scottish independence was the second most popular constitutional option, at 30 per cent, with the status quo of devolution as it stands today a close third at 29 per cent. With a total of 61 per cent backing devolution, Better Together said the poll confirmed it was still "the settled will of the Scottish people", 25 years after then Labour leader John Smith used the phrase while laying the groundwork for devolution.
