The question YouGuff really wanted to ask.

The question YouGuff

4 Responses

  1. Um. As someone who largely supports Scottish independence, I don’t quite understand this attack. Am I missing layers of satire?

    • It is supposed to a least make you smile, a poll commisioned by a right wing pro Devolution think tank with a preamble to the question instead of simply asking it as a stand alone always makes me suspicious. I have to admit I have as yet to see the published data although I have seen this question, (below) but the MSM seemed happy to lead the results without sight. No devo question on the voting paper so I see this poll as the more of the jam tomorrow promises.

      The question YouGov asked:-

      If there was a question tomorrow on Scotland leaving the United KIngdom and becoming an idependent country and this was the question, how would you vote? Should Scotland be an independent country?
      Yes.

      No.
      Would note vote.
      Don’t know.

      • Ah, yes, I see – that is a bit of a preamble! I don’t know whether it would actually have an impact on the results, though.

  2. Don’t add anything to the preamble simply remove,

    leaving the United KIngdom and.

    You get.

    If there was a question tomorrow on becoming an idependent country and this was the question, how would you vote? Should Scotland be an independent country?

    It’s in there for a reason.
