    MoneySaving Poll: Would you vote for English/Welsh/NI independence? 15th Sep 14 at 1:07 PM
    Poll started 15 September 2014

    Would you vote for English/Welsh/NI independence?

    The Scottish referendum is here. Those resident in Scotland will decide whether the country should break away from the rest of the UK. So we wanted to run our own vote for the constituent countries of the UK using similar stark language as in the real referendum.Please select the option closest to your views.



    Did you vote? Are you surprised at the results so far? Have your say below. To see the results from last time, click here.

    If you havenít already, join the forum to reply. If you arenít sure how it all works, read our New to Forum? Intro Guide.

    Thanks!

    I can't beleive that at this time there are 6% of Scots in this poll have said they will not be voting.
    That's like cutting your own tongue out and never having a voice again.

    It might not be Scots who are planning to not vote, but non-Scottish people who live in Scotland.

    By definition if they are living in Scotland and eligable to vote in the referendum then they are Scots and thus should vote.

    This is one vote that should have been made compusory, a decision like this can't be left with a minority of the population winning the vote.

    I am amazed at the low number of people who wouldn't want independence if they could have it - gosh I would vote for independence. Can we have it with a new parliament - one that only has voted in members and gets a lower salary to show they are doing the job because they want to help people and no expenses to be claimed at all, like everyone else in the UK.

    From the results of the MSE poll it would appear to me that the Scottish rush to break with the Union is absolute madness. With so many uncertainties the yes voters seem to walking blindly to disaster rather than Salmond's unproven vision of prosperity. I would have thought it important to put your parachute on before jumping out of the plane. Talk is one thing, delivering is a different matter altogether.

    Thousands of business people in the UK claim expenses. Unlike MPs, the expenses are only paid if they a connected with your job and supported by receipts. I doubt the boss would sign off an expense claim for a duck house.
