Sorry , i didn't read that properly, 4 hours clothes shopping with my 20yr old daughter is almost throwing me over the edge.  I was referring to the 62% , not the number of eu nationals. 

I'll take her next time.  You deserve a rest! :)

Good god could you be more rapey?

He's not being serious. He would never have a mother in law who is in the SNP.

I would be more worried for Marky and Renfrew Blue. He is pimping himself to them on another thread ?.

I have no idea. Not able to read the actual story. Will have a look tomorrow morning

I was hearing whispers of a Survation poll earlier with a Yes lead.  Could be that.  Ipsos will be due too as I got polled yesterday by them.

I've heard the figure of 170,000 mentioned.  No idea how accurate that is though.

I think those numbers are in the right ballpark. If you look at it in a different way. Almost exactly 4.0 million were registered to vote in the EU referendum and 4.3 million were registered to vote in the independence referendum. That number includes about 150,000 16 and 17 year olds. 

So, if the EU national vote was to go from 75% "NO" to 75% "YES" then the actual difference would be about 75,000 votes. Not a huge amount but every little helps.

The EU national no vote was 57% (assuming they split In equal measure to other non-ruk nationalities) so approx 75k - 60k.  To get the number you quote added you need 100% yes vote from EUs

Ah OK, I didn't know that. I just used a fairly extreme swing of going from 75% NO to 75% YES to emphasise that it is a fairly small number and fairly insignificant in the overall scheme of things.

The big swinger is the 300k no voting rUK from 450k. 

Even turning that around wouldn't do it. Focus has to be on indigenous scots. 

....... That or invite 500k europhilic migrants (Lets call them brefugees - everyone loves a portmanteau) from rUK to make Scotland their home.

Just need kez to make her mind up... Grandees meeting tomorrow apparently. And considering all options . 

https://www.politicshome.com/news/uk/uk-regions/scotland/news/76576/scottish-labour-consider-all-options-amid-second-independence

 

Can't see ruth joining in. 

 

But could see support for independence by parties which gained >75% in holyrood and general elections.

Wee Willie Rennie says he backs EU negotiation but not independence. Not sure what he wants exactly.
