The Friday edition of Populus’s twice-weekly poll is out today and has topline figures of CON 36%, LAB 39%, LDEM 10%, UKIP 8%. The 36% for the Tories is higher than most other polls have shown the Conservatives, though that’s probably partially a result of Populus tending to show relatively low scores for both the Lib Dems and UKIP (now that Populus have rejoined the regular polling rota I should get round to doing an updated post on the various companies’ house effects). Full Populus tabs are here.

Meanwhile the daily YouGov poll for the Sun this morning had figures of CON 34%, LAB 39%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 11%. Full tabs are here.

    “those who want to re-arrange national borders for the sake of political advantage.”

    It’s a difficult thing language!
    “Re-arrange” seems an inappropriate term for those who wish to keep the current national border of Scotland exactly as it is, but to have all powers exercised by its residents instead of only some.

    Even in the context of creating two states within the border of the current UK state, 2re-arrangement seems less than useful.

    If you are talking about people who, “for their own political purposes”, wished to “rearrange” the existing borders of Scotland in the event of independence, then you would have a point.

    However, I don’t think you should take the discussion above about Berwick-on- Tweed seriously. :-)

    Perhaps you were thinking of the redrawing of the maritime border of Scotland by the Scottish Adjacent Waters Boundary Order 1999?

    Not that I have any problem with the new boundary, which is much more in line with the border that two independent states should have. The reason for the Order, however, may well have been for political advantage.
