YES up 6 points NO loses 5 points
Sensational results in the first poll to have been conducted after Osborne’s ultimatum and bully-boy behaviour, the extortion threats of a bar on independence if Scotland didn’t pony-up 120 Billion in kickbacks to London, and the racketeering of capo di tutti capi Ed Balls, and sixth form class monitor Douglas “Squeaky” Alexander.
The Survation poll shows there’s a 6% swing to YES and a 5% drop in the NO vote relative to their last poll in late January.
The data were gathered after Osborne’s shakedown debacle and after the lunatic ramblings of Jose Manuel Barroso, who gave a stream of consciousness riff warning that Scotland couldn’t possibly be admitted to the EU, the very institution of which it has been a member in good standing for forty years.
There is very little else one can point to for the cause of this sea change in voter sentiment except the near hysterical behaviour of NO and their running-dogs abroad.
The results were: YES 38%, NO 47%, DK 16%
