Glasgow Skeptics debate shows another upward trend for independence

In a debate organised by Glasgow Skeptics this Monday 24 March 2014, the results again showed the upward trend for a Yes vote.

Before – Yes 77% v 23% No Undecideds 19.9%
After –    Yes 85% v 15% No
  Undecideds 12.6%

Many people were turned away as the venue at the Mitchell Theatre had reached its capacity audience.


The debate was chaired by Dr Neil McGarvey of the University of Strathclyde. Neil is an expert in Scottish Politics and Local Government, and is co-author of “the leading textbook on Scottish Politics”.

The Yes Side was represented by TWO Scots Asians for Yes members, Jonathon Shafi from the Radical Independence Campaign, and Tasmina Sheikh, the SNP EU Parliamentary Candidate and Yes Scotland advisory board member, as well as Patrick Harvie MSP, the co-convenor of the Scottish Green Party.




The Better Together side was represented by  Jackson Carlaw MSP, Deputy Leader of the Scottish Conservatives, Jackie Ballie MSP, Better Together Director & Scottish Labour Party’s Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Health, and Willie Rennie MSP, Leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats.

  1. These debate victories are great moral boosters for YES Street Campaigners in particular and Yessers generally. Well done and thanks for the post.
