Scots care more about the future of the Union than housing, education, immigration, poverty, law and order, welfare, the environment, defence, transgender rights, racism!

In the wake of the Scotland in Union poll, misinterpreted to suggest Scots don’t care about independence, the Tusker has shown it can do even ‘better.’

Today’s YouGov poll reveals that a whopping 33% of the 139 Scots polled, put the future of the Union in their top 4 priorities, ahead of a range of issues with powerful impacts on their daily lives – housing, education, immigration, poverty, law and order, welfare, the environment, defence, transgender rights or racism.

One obvious interpretation of this, of course, is that the SNP Government is making such a good job of dealing with problems in all of these areas that folk are less concerned about them than they would be if they had a Tory government to CFEU. Look, for example at the huge difference in care about law and order between Scotland (12%) and rest of the UK (19/20%).

Only the economy, Brexit, coronavirus and the NHS were prioritised by a greater percentage of respondents.

  2. Next questions would be, how much are you able and willing to pay, should you need an operation, when Scotland’s NHS is completely privatised by the ‘unionist’ government in London? £100k OK?
    Or, how much can you afford to pay for your water bills when the ‘unionists’ privatise your, (at present clean) water, and how much do you think would be appropriate for the ‘unionists’ to bill you, for the huge pipeline being planned to take your water to England? Who do you think should be responsible for the clean up required, should a nuclear submarine explode in Scottish waters, how much are you willing to pay for that, of course that’s if you and your family are not killed in the blast.
    Finally, do you use the new Forth Road bridge? How much will you be willing to pay in tolls, to drive over it to and from your second home every weekend? Ah, that sounds a bit unfair does it?
    That’s just the tip of the iceberg in your ‘union’ utopia!

  3. In England, the Tories care more about Brexit separatism than the Union with Scotland or Northern Ireland.

    Cameroon worries about his step-pater and huntin’, shootin’ and fishin’, in his huge “tax-efficient” estate north of THE north!
    Boris worries more about his next “hot vixen” than about us “verminous Scots”.
    Gove worries about Peterburgh and Fraserhead, and how come they dont appear on his map?

    The Scotsman, many years ago, published a letter by a retired General to the effect that an independent Scotland would be the chink allowing the Russians to invade England**.
    He didnt seem to give a monkeys about Scotland being invaded first.
    Cummings worries about just how gullible and stupid the Tories are, and if one day they will wake up to his plotting, before he can get his paws on what he wants most–power, money, adulation—a nice suit and a haircut.

    **This must have been his equivalent of the Von Schlieffen Plan.
    Nice for our senior military to be so up to date with their planning—-“no need for demmed new-fangled tanks–a cavalry charge from the flanks, with our Tommies marching to meet ’em , demmed Froggies dont stand a chance”—“Oh, its Krauts, is it”. “No?……. Its godless commie Ruskies”?
    “Same thing, old bean—now where’s that pink gin—make mine a BIG ‘un”!
