From Redfield & Wilton today with a sample of 2 000 including 180 Scots, when asked ‘Which issues would most determine how you would vote in a General Election, if there were to be one tomorrow? You may select up to three’ , 60 of the Scots chose the 16th and last in the list, ‘Scottish Independence/The Union.‘ None of the Welsh sub-set of 100 were interested and only 16 in England chose it.
The big two for all groups were the Economy and Health with Education and Taxation next.
We don’t, of course know why these choices were made. The lack of interest, 2% or less, was everywhere, with only the SNP and Green 2019 voters caring (56% and 7%).

I look forward to a Poll which asks Scots a binary question on Independence ! ….still waiting …..waiting ….

Oh just let little bankrupt
Insignificant and delussional England wait till Scotland departs c/ w her
Vast assets particularly the renewable mainly untapped natural resources
Resulting in a massive increase in deficit between
Their severely depleted fixed assets and their eyewatering liabilities
Once Scottish assets removed from rUK balance sheet
World markets will very soon come to realise England is truly and well bankrupt
That has immediate serious consequences and will undoubtedly lead to emergency IMF bailout
Which shall only be forthcoming with unpalatable decisions such as Sell EHNS, slash state pensions, end most benefits,scrap Trident ( if they do not then USA will terminate the lease of the missiles ) on and on shall such go
England is at more peril than it was from the Spanish Armada and Hitler
Wonder what they shall care for then ?
They have been stupefied
Into believing that Scotland
Is the subsidy junkie all whilst the fact of the matter is quite the opposite

This is a reflection of polls going back at least a decade.
People in England are just not interested to “ruling” Scotland.
Ditto Tory party members.
I doubt also if many English politicians really give a toss about us or have ever been to Scotland or know anything about us.
They are like children with sweeties they don’t like but won’t give them away.
