Polly Toynbee and the Yes vote

We went to see Polly Toynbee and David Walker speak at The Edinburgh Book Festival yesterday.

Polly Toynbee made a heartfelt plea for Scotland to remain in the UK so as to balance the horrible Tories who are running things.

At a couple of points during the Q&A, the question of the Scottish referendum Yes versus No vote was voiced by the audience.

From the cheers in the audience there was an obvious majority for Yes.

Bearing in mind that the people who came to that event are likely to be Left leaning and it is maybe no surprise that they favour Yes.

Bearing in mind that they are very probably well above average in earning power and available capital and maybe the fact that they favour Yes is revealing.

The polls put the No vote ahead. But I’m not so sure.
