    Welsh Political Barometer

    Support for Welsh independence has hit an historic high according to the most recent Welsh Political Barometer

    https://blogs.cardiff.ac.uk/election...-independence/
    https://nation.cymru/opinion/the-lat...yet-persuaded/

    Interesting results, 32% (when adjusted for don't knows) in a straight Yes/No indy poll is an incredible result considering just 10% supported independence in 2013. By comparison, Scottish independence was polling at 32% in 2013, just a year before their referendum and with the SNP having been in power for 6 years

    Strange times

    The poll also showed a 5% increase in support for Labour, with Plaid also gaining (4%), Lib Dems, Greens and BP gaining 1% each and Tory support dropping by 11%

    I heard the main man was contacted to ask if he would consider changing the question from a would you vote for Independence tomorrow type question to a would you vote for Independence in the future type question, seems like the guy is interested.
    I would have thought that would boost the figures even more for Indy.

    Eh?

    The poll said that more people want independence in Wales and you took that to mean the end of Labour here.

    The same poll says that Labour's popularity has increased 5%.

    We don't need to wait for the next ballot - you were wrong yesterday when you said "oooooops there goes Labour again" based on City123's post.

    I hope that's helped clear it up for you. If you need any futher help (in any thread), I'm happy to be of service.

    Ahem... You were the one reacting to the polls posted by City123. There was no vote for you to "stick" to.

    Always happy to help

    You just say that stuffwhen you want to put someone down. Very poor and ineffective debating style.
