This Daily Express England report alerted me to the Opinium Westminster voting intentions poll for 8th April. In it only 34% opposed Scotland leaving the UK and a majority of Labour and Lib Dem voters supported the idea. Only Conservative voters (50%) were predominantly opposed.
In March 2014, an Opinium poll found 61% of English and Welsh respondents wanted Scotland to stay.
The data for the Tory voters above are interesting given the Ipsos MORI poll in 2019 which asked party members whether they would rather avert Brexit if it would lead to Scotland breaking away from the UK. 63% of party members would be willing to pay for Brexit with the breakup of the United Kingdom.
Trinny and Susannah who wailed ‘Please stay with us Scotland – we love you.‘ in 2014, have not yet been asked how they feel today.
The Spectator magazine which on the day before the referendum had a special ‘Scotland, please stay‘ readers’ letters edition, only ten years after publishing a poem calling us ‘verminous‘ has not yet decided which way to go on this one.
David Cameron has other things on his mind.
