YOUGOV has recorded a boost in Scottish independence support, with backing for Yes up four points in its latest polling.

The survey puts Yes and No roughly neck-and-neck, which has been a consistent trend in polling for over a year.

Backing for Yes is recorded at 49% – up four points since May – and No has suffered a fall of four points, down to 51% and just marginally ahead.

The survey was carried out among 1067 people between September 30 and October 4, meaning it was during the time of post mini-Budget chaos but does not cover the shambolic sacking of Kwasi Kwarteng, or resignations of Suella Braverman and Liz Truss.

Yes voters and No voters change their minds

According to YouGov, there are a few key issues which could make No voters change their minds about backing the Union.

Some 14% of the No-voting respondents said they would support backing independence if it offered a route to joining the EU, while 11% said they’d move to Yes if the cost-of-living crisis was eased as a result.

However on the flipside, some 27% of Yes voters said they would oppose independence if it led to a rise in the cost of living, and 16% would back No if it led to new border checks.

Overall, 18% of 2014 Yes voters said they now back No and 17% of No voters now back Yes, roughly evening each other out.

"It's no surprise that support for independence is increasing," Greens MSP Gillian Mackay (below) said. "It only takes one look at the shambolic chaos in Westminster and the legacy of the cruel, incompetent and climate wrecking Tory government to see that Scotland could do far better as an independent country in Europe.

"But independence is not just about ending Tory misrule. It is also about taking our future into our own hands and building a better future. Over the months ahead we will be presenting the positive and progressive Green case for a fairer, greener and independent Scotland."
