The latest YouGov sub-poll of 144 Scots with fieldwork on 5th and 6th June 2019:
- Con 16%
- Lab 8%
- LD 9%
- SNP 48%
- Brexit 15%
- Green 4%
- The much-vaunted Brexit surge is, in Scotland, the same as that in London and only half of that across England.
- Scots, at 67%, 10% more likely to vote.
- Scots, at 15%, least likely (London 33%) to think crime an important issue, (despite BBC reporting).
Thanks John, this is a small sample but it is interesting now we need to see the majority for independence starting to rise.

Once Johnson is elected leader of the Tory party. and made Prime Minister, he will drag them so far to the right of the Brexit party that Farage’s invention will almost disappear. That, coupled with a No Deal outcome of the Brexit saga, should, and if it doesn’t we deserve all we get, ensure independence for Scotland. Labour, well once upon a time in couple of our wards, trying to find an S.N.P voter was rarer than a Partick Thistle win. Now, it’s the complete opposite. I just wish it was the same for the Jags.
Don’t be kidded.
If he can achieve Brexit (any kind), a feat in itself, then the relevance of the Farage lot disappears. What we will get then, is the Boris of London Mayor times—the liberal, every bodies pal, kind of guy. He is a populist fake–a bit like Ruthie–able to promote whatever works.
A dangerous man, never more so than when he is smirking at the camera.
