JUST a fifth of voters in England strongly oppose Scottish independence, a poll has found.

After Scotland elected a pro-independence majority to Holyrood, with 64 SNP MSPs and eight Green MSPs, a survey was carried out among English voters to determine their views on the prospect of ending the Union.

The poll, carried out among 1894 adults by Savanta ComRes for The Telegraph, found apathy among voters south of the Border.

Asked to what extent they supported or opposed independence, 32% said they opposed it – but just 20% said they “strongly” opposed the idea.

Meanwhile a quarter (25%) said they support Scotland becoming independent, and 30% had no support or opposition.

The younger age groups were the least likely to be concerned, with one in five of 18-34 year olds saying they were against independence.

Other views, such as attitudes towards funding and the Scottish Border, were discussed as part of the poll.

A third of voters were against the idea of the Treasury increasing funding to Scotland, while 26% backed it. More than half (52%) of people aged over 55 disagreed with this suggestion.

The National:

Voters were split on whether they felt Scotland should continue using the pound after leaving the Union, with 35% saying we could, 30% saying we shouldn’t, and 35% undecided.

Some 38% of voters in England said there should be vehicle checks at the Scottish Border after independence, while 42% disagreed and 21% did not know.

There had been some suggestions from pro-Union figures that all Scots in the UK should get a vote on independence at a future referendum. The pollsters asked respondents if they felt the whole of the UK should have a say.

44% disagreed with this idea, while 32% supported it. Tory voters were the most likely to say people in England should get to vote in the referendum (43%) while Labour voters were much less supportive (26%).

Young people in England were also the most confident in Scotland’s future. Half (51%) of those aged 18-34 felt Scotland would thrive as an independent country, while 19% of those over 55 agreed.

Chris Hopkins of the polling firm commented: “This poll shows that English voters very much feel as though Scottish independence is a Scottish issue, with just a third of English adults saying they should get a vote in any future referendum, and little appetite for the UK Government providing extra financial incentive to persuade Scotland to stay in the Union.”
