60% of Scots think Scotland will leave the UK

– Liz Mair

So says a new poll by YouGov. Though not many voters seem to actually support independence.

Also, most Scottish voters think that people in England and Wales don't fully appreciate the contribution that Scotland makes. That's something I'd agree with, based on my experience of coming from a Scottish background, being married to a Scot, and having lived in London.

Sadly, more Scots identify most closely with the Irish than Americans.
