“This is a significant poll – and the third this weekend to show that the momentum is firmly behind independence," said Michael Russell MSP. “People in Scotland overwhelmingly oppose leaving the EU and it’s abundantly clear that views are changing on independence as voters look to escape this Brexit nightmare.

“With Westminster in chaos, and Boris Johnson in Downing Street, more and more people are ready to listen to the case for a progressive, independent Scotland within Europe.


“The SNP is heading into the first day of our conference with the wind in our sails, while momentum continues to build behind independence.

"The people of Scotland deserve the choice of a better future than the Brexit Britain being imposed on us. Be in no doubt, a referendum is just round the corner and the people of Scotland will make their voices heard.”
