Scottish Referendum soon, Scotland gains support for EU exit, Scottish independence Referendum, United Kingdom

Nearly 60 percent of Scots now support Scottish independence after Britain voted to leave the European Union this week, according to a new opinion poll.

The Sunday Post said 59 per cent of respondents in the poll backed independence from the United Kingdom. That was sharply higher than the 45 per cent of votes cast in favour of independence at a referendum in 2014 which resulted in the country staying in the UK.

Scots voted for remain  

62-38%

British voted to leave

52-48%

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said earlier on Saturday that a fresh independence referendum was possible. 

Many Scots voted in favour of remaining in the UK in 2014 because of concerns that breaking away might leave them outside the bloc.

Scots voted by 62-38 percent to remain in the EU in Thursday's EU membership referendum but British voters as a whole voted by 52-48 percent to leave.

The Sunday Post reported the poll finding on its front page. The newspaper declined to provide further details of the poll.

A second poll released on Saturday night also showed more Scots now favour independence.

A Panelbase survey for the Sunday Times found 52 percent of respondents wanted to break with the rest of Britain, with 48 percent opposed. That survey interviewed 620 adults on Friday and Saturday.

Why do some in Britain want to leave the EU?

Many people in Britain believe that EU is making inroads into British sovereignty. Many in the ruling Conservative Party and the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) believe that the EU has changed since the time it was formed and that it was impacting daily life.

Some key issues are:

Immigration

As EU's membership expanded, more Europeans, especially from poorer EU nations, started migrating to U.K. using the “freedom of movement” clause. The anti-immigration parties argue this puts a severe strain on national resources and add up to welfare expenditure. The pro-EU members argue that EU migrants contribute more to the national economy than they take out.

Security

The Remain side argues that in the era of international terrorism and criminality, cooperating with the EU will make the U.K. safer, while the other side says that the security risk will in fact increase if the U.K. does not have control over its borders.

Employment

The Remain side argues that as three million jobs are tied to the EU there could be a jobs crisis if the U.K. leaves the EU; Brexiteers claim that there will be a jobs boom without the fetters that EU regulations impose.

Trade

On trade, the Remain side says that access to the single European market, free of tariffs and border controls, is critical for the U.K. as 45 per cent of its trade is with the EU. The Leave side says that the EU needs British markets and individual trade deals with European countries can be easily negotiated.

Economy

Remain argues that leaving the EU will put the dominance of London, the Europe’s financial centre, at risk as banks will move out, whereas the Brexiteers argue that London’s status is unassailable as it is already a global power base.

VOTER TURNOUT (382 of 382 local authorities declared) : 72.16%, LEAVE: 52% (17.41 million votes) , REMAIN: 48% 16.14 million votes)

Reasons for Leaving EU

  1. Those who want to leave the EU argue that it would allow the UK to better control immigration, thus reducing pressure on public services, housing and jobs, save billions in EU membership fees,
  2. It would allow the UK to make its own trade deals, and free the UK from EU regulations and bureaucracy that they see as needless and costly. 

Reasons for Remaining in EU

  1. Those who want to remain argue that leaving the EU would risk the UK's prosperity, diminish its influence over world affairs, jeopardise national security by reducing access to common European criminal databases.
  2. It would result in trade barriers between the UK and the EU. In particular, they argue that leaving the EU would lead to job losses, delays in investment into the UK and risks to large and small business.

Labour's Rosena Allin-Khan has won the Tooting by-election in a contest overshadowed by the murder of MP Jo Cox.

Dr Allin-Khan held the south London seat for Labour after London mayor Sadiq Khan stood down following his victory in the City Hall race in May.

The A&E doctor, who increased the Labour majority, used her acceptance speech to pay tribute to Mrs Cox, who was killed in her Batley and Spen constituency on Thursday.

She said Mrs Cox was a "proud and passionate campaigner who will be desperately missed".

Dr Allin-Khan increased Labour's majority to 6,357 over the Conservatives, up from the 2,842 secured by her predecessor in the general election last year.

Brexit EU Referendum, EU, UK, European Union, Brexit ,British EU Opinion Poll ,Europe,David Cameron, British prime minister 

As the date for Brexit referendum is approaching near the buzz around it is gaining. David Cameron, British prime minister, declared June 23rd as the date of referendum, when United Kingdom will vote on the question of whether to stay “in” or “out” of the European Union.

Different experts have given different opinion about the probable pros and cons of being in the EU. Prime Minister Cameron himself has been pushing for UK to remain a part of EU. He has been campaigning to stay in the bloc after London Mayor Boris Johnson dealt a blow by backing a “Brexit”. 

The date of referendum is near and so various opinion polls have started to predict the outcome of the vote. Most of the opinion polls done by various prominent agencies predict a close vote between the “Ins” and “OUTs”. The data from different sources shows a deep divide in the people over the question of Brexit.The latest weekly online opinion poll conducted by the firm ICM between 6-8 may, 2016 shows that 44% of the people had voted for “Remain” and 46% had voted for “Leave” while 11% people remain undecided over what to vote.

The survey was conducted over a sample size of 2,005 people.Last week opinion poll by ICM between 29 April – May 3 2016 predicted 44% for the “Remain” and 45% for the “Leave”.Another prominent agency YouGov conduted an online poll between 3-6 May and found that 42% of the people voted for “Remain” while 40% voted for “Leave” and 13% people remained undecided. The survey was done over a sample size of 3,378 electorates.
