Herald letter: In Depth Polling Suggestions.

[Edited by Herald – original had word ‘moneymaking’ before ‘wheeze.’]

IT is interesting that Angus Robertson’s new wheeze has an objective of “in depth polling” (“Robertson heads new polling group in bud for Indyref2”, The Herald, February 4). In a spirit of helpfulness, I would like to suggest a few in-depth questions he might like to ask the Scottish public, namely:

If leaving one union (the EU) is a Bad Thing, do you think leaving a longer-established and more economically valuable union (the UK) is a Good Thing?

Are you happy to have your salary, benefits and pensions to be paid in a different (as yet unknown but probably less valuable) currency if Scotland leaves the UK?

Do you support giving up our nuclear deterrent at a time when our enemies are developing new nuclear weapons?

And of course:

If politicians define that a referendum as Once In A Generation, should they honour that promise? And how long is a generation?

You’re welcome, Angus.
