Scottish independence campaign ahead in poll for first time

A pro-independence sign is displayed outside the Birnam Highland Games in Perthshire, Scotland, on August 30, 2014A new opinion poll being published Sunday put Scotland’s pro-independence camp ahead for the first time in the campaign, just 11 days before a referendum on splitting from Britain. Although the two point lead is within the margin of error, the findings dramatically up the stakes ahead of the vote on September 18, handing valuable momentum to First Minister Alex Salmond’s Scottish National Party (SNP). The Sunday Times also reported that Queen Elizabeth II now feels “a great deal of concern” over the independence vote and has asked for daily updates. Those fighting to keep the 300-year-old union, who include Prime Minister David Cameron, are now expected to announce key concessions in a bid to fight back.
