10. Look at the sources below. They give information about the level of support for Scotland becoming an independent country. Source A A survey of voters asked the following questions in 2005 and 2007. “Are you in favour of Scotland becoming a country independent from the rest of the UK?” The answers are shown in the graphs below. 2005 Yes No Don’t know 2007
Source B The Sunday Herald newspaper said that the 2007 opinion poll was “bad news for the SNP”. The SNP said it was “very encouraging”. Their spokesperson pointed out that many Labour, Liberal Democrat and even Conservative supporters said they were “in favour of independence”. The figures for the 18–24 year olds showed more than half in favour of independence, but the over-65 age group showed only 41% in favour. Independence was less popular with women than men. In 1998, just before the Scottish Parliament was set up, opinion polls showed 60% of people preferring devolution and only 34% in favour of independence.
