With just 90 days to Brexit Bourach Day on 29 March 2019, most Scots are in favour of Scottish Independence, according to the latest opinion poll carried out by Panelbase.
The Panelbase poll for the Sunday Times (Sample: 1,028 adults; Fieldwork: 30 Nov – 5 Dec 2018) put support for Scottish independence at 47% and found a majority of Scots would back independence over both a No Deal Brexit (59%) and the Bad Deal scenario negotiated by the Prime Minister (53%).
Mark R Whittet (LLB BA) Leader, Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party, said:
“Cometh the Brexit bourach (*) hour, cometh the power and majority popular support for Scotland’s Independence.
“UK prime minister Theresa May once vowed that ‘now is not the time’ for a second Scottish Independence referendum.
“The closer we get to the Brexit bourach (aka ‘dog’s dinner’ or ‘farrago’) of May’s ‘No-deal’ or a ‘hard deal’, the greater the popular support for Scotland’s Independence there is.
“No UK prime minister can order the waves of increasing democratic support for Scottish Independence to simply ‘turn back’ King Knut style – and if Theresa May tries to do so again, she will simply be washed away by the growing wave of support for Scotland to be Independent.
“Because there is no parliamentary majority support in Westminster for May’s ‘Hard Brexit; – which will rip Scotland out of the EU – despite the democratically express wishes of most Scots – the inevitable result will be a ‘no-deal’ Brexit bourach on 29 March 2019.
“This will likely result in the biggest self-inflicted economic shock the British economy has ever seen – and involuntarily plunging Scotland into an unnecessary and entirely avoidable recession.”
Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party
The primary goal – and number one objective in the constitution of Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party – is to achieve political Independence for Scotland.
We aim to do so by helping to bring about a new/ second Scottish Independence Referendum in light of the entirely-changed political and constitutional landscape following the UK Brexit vote.
We shall do this by providing a meaningful, valid, SECOND choice/ chance to vote for Independence-supporting MSPs in elections to the next Scottish Parliament; ie SNP party members/ voters can vote ‘first’ choice for SNP on the ballot paper, and then vote ‘second’ choice for Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party on the ballot paper.
This gives two choices/ chances/ votes in favour of Scotland’s Independence (instead of the present 1/ SNP – and reduces the ‘stray’/ use-less ‘second’ vote going to any other British Unionist party.
Despite the use of the word ‘Scottish’ in front of their names, the Liberals, Tories and Labour are all single, British Unionist parties and are all controlled from, and based in, their London head offices.
Scotland’s Independence Referendum Party is not competing with the SNP; rather, we want to work in a progressive alliance with them and all other groups that support Independence for Scotland.
