Boy – the difference a year makes. Previously, the claim for Scottish Independence stood at about an expected 7% vote. Now, the landmark ICM survey revealed Sunday a decline of the No vote from 46 per cent to 42 percent over the past month alone. At the same time the Yes vote remained steady at 39 percent. With the “don’t knows” excluded from the count, the No vote stands at 52 percent, just four percent ahead of the Yes vote.

If separation comes, this we may see the old currency revived.
