I hope you realise that this has nothing to do with good old Boris.  Good old BoJo.  Good old likeable, ruffle haired, party animal BJ.  I hope no one suggests otherwise.

Give it an hour and someone will find a way to blame the EU, quite possibly focusing on the French. Or the England team losing to Hungary. Or the weather. Or something. But not partygate, or BoJo generally, no siree.

Ooft.

Really interesting.  Have you looked at the data tables?  500 questioned in Scotland and a 4.4% margin of error due to data size.  Data tables are for the UK as a whole, and “SNP” isn’t a party listed on voting intentions. Also carried out by a market research company new to the UK.

Apart from that, this is devastating for Sturgeon!

If the 15% Don't Knows figure is accurate there's everything to play for.

The problem is that if people are Don't know, I'd say they are more likely to play safe and stick with the status quo. What does it take for folk to be convinced?

The Yes side was far better at recruiting votes as the campaign got going last time around, from under 30% to 45%. They'll have to come out with something more solid on currency, eu relations etc this time, I think Salmond's tactic to swerve around the issues last time was why he lost.

What status quo, though? Brexit Britain is still a work in … regress?

I confess to recently becoming a bit of a fan of James O'Brien on lbc. 

He likes to look at the things that the Government and the Maily Dail and similar outlets want the electorate to be angry about and the number of entries might surprise folk if they actually think about it. 

These are the kind of things that the Government doesn't like as they are critical of policy or even have the nefve to ask awkward questions. So far, he has listed the Monarchy and the Church of England (Rwanda), judges, lawyers, the law itself, universities and experts, the former head of the Bank of England, unions, the right to protest, select committees of the HoC (even the Committee on Standards which has a Conservative majority), the BBC, Channel 4 and now even seem to rage about a bank allowing its staff to have preferred gender pronouns on their name badges. I mean seriously - anger about name badges 🤣

There will be others that escape me at the moment.  Now, call me suspicious if you like (form an orderly queue) but when a government sets out to demean, silence or even effectively abolish any meaningful questioning, or vehicles for criticism or protest, I doubt it will end well. 

So, is Brexit Britain a work in regress? Abso-bloody-lutely!

This guy speaks about the status quo.  Regardless of anyones opinion on the blogger, read the article posted.

Constitutional conversations have to involve hard questions for those of us who want change on this island. But no one can now assume a stable, trusty status quo underwritten by a UK government committed to basic norms.

Ooft indeed

In fairness to@Lex he has a point. All the 50/50 stuff is no use, as no will win as yes will fall slightly back.
We really need to be seeing 58+ for yes on continuous basis before we should get too excited. Now plenty of time for that to happen.

Still nothing in it.

That's the point, it's 50/50 just at the moment and to present it as anything different portrays a fear.

I'm not so sure I agree with @John Lambies Doos but they do raise the question of risk, do we grasp this opportunity or consolidate?

Stopping at Derby and where we are in 2022 goes to the heart of it and I'm not sure I have a firm view on strategy.
