Scottish Referendum: Yes Campaign Takes Lead

The Yes campaign has taken the lead ahead of the Scottish Referendum, according to the results of a new poll published tonight. The YouGov poll commissioned by the Sunday Times suggests the Yes campaign now leads by 51% to 49%. The poll means the Yes campaign has overturned a 22-point lead for the Better Together campaign within the past month. The lead is the first for the independence camp registered by YouGov – or by any polling company – since regular polling began in the run-up to the vote.  The Yes campaign has taken the lead ahead of the Scottish Referendum, according to the results of a new poll published tonight. The YouGov poll commissioned by the Sunday Times suggests the Yes campaign now leads by 51% to 49%. The poll means the Yes campaign has overturned a 22-point lead for the Better Together campaign within the past month. The lead is the first for the independence camp registered by YouGov – or by any polling company – since regular polling began in the run-up to the vote.

“If you want Scotland to remain part of the UK family you have to vote for it on 18 September. Separation is forever. These polls can and must now serve as a wake-up call to anyone who thought the referendum result was a foregone conclusion. “It never was. It will go down to the wire. Now is the time to speak up and speak out.” The results came as Gordon Brown made another appeal for a successful No vote on September 18. In an article for the Sunday Mirror, the former Prime Minister described the union as a “living partnership”.  “Our union is not out of date or an anachronism or a museum piece but a unique, unparalleled, multinational living partnership that Europe and America cannot match or mirror,” he wrote. “And what our ancestors built up, no nationalist should be allowed to split asunder.” Mr Brown said the referendum battle had been tougher than many people expected, adding that he believed Conservative policies were to blame. “Why has it been difficult to win Scottish votes in support of this principle of sharing that most Scots hold dear?” he wrote. “Many are angry that the Bedroom Tax was imposed upon Scots against their will while at the same time the very wealthy received tax cuts.

“The SNP also claim that the ramifications of any Tory privatisation of the NHS in England will cut budgets in Scotland. “But English and Welsh people have already given an answer to the SNP claims. “The answer is that 90% of English people want to keep the NHS public and retain it free at the point of need. “And the vast majority across the whole UK dislike the Bedroom Tax and would even consider more taxes to make our NHS better.” Mr Brown will appear on Sky’s Murnaghan programme from 10am on Sunday.
