Ms Sturgeon said : "What this poll shows is that Boris Johnson and the Tories can’t deny democracy forever. “When the Scottish Parliament decides it is the right time for the people of Scotland to choose their future, it would be foolish for a Westminster Tory government to stand the way of the democratic will of the people of Scotland”. But a UK government spokesperson said the SNP’s push for a “divisive referendum” was “irresponsible”. The poll also shows that across Britain as a whole, only the over-65s believe Mr Johnson’s government has taken the right approach. They back his position by 45 per cent to 35 per cent. But no other age group agreed. And young people were especially likely to believe the outcome of Thursday’s vote could lead to another independence poll. Among 18-24 year olds, 48 per cent thought the government should allow another referendum, while just 15 per cent thought they should withhold permission. As well as the SNP, the Scottish Greens also support independence, as do Alba, the new party formed by Ms Sturgeon’s rival and former ally Alex Salmond. He is campaigning for voters to deliver a ‘super majority’ among pro-independence parties on Thursday. UK ministers were spooked by a series of polls earlier this year which suggested support for independence had risen in Scotland. However, polls in recent days suggest that backing may have waned during the course of this election campaign. Some UK government insiders believe the chances of a pro-independence majority on Thursday are currently touch and go. A UK government spokesperson said: “Now more than ever, people in Scotland want to see the UK government and the devolved administrations working together to protect lives and livelihoods.

Ms Sturgeon said : "What this poll shows is that Boris Johnson and the Tories can’t deny democracy forever. “When the Scottish Parliament decides it is the right time for the people of Scotland to choose their future, it would be foolish for a Westminster Tory government to stand the way of the democratic will of the people of Scotland”. But a UK government spokesperson said the SNP’s push for a “divisive referendum” was “irresponsible”. The poll also shows that across Britain as a whole, only the over-65s believe Mr Johnson’s government has taken the right approach. They back his position by 45 per cent to 35 per cent. But no other age group agreed. And young people were especially likely to believe the outcome of Thursday’s vote could lead to another independence poll. Among 18-24 year olds, 48 per cent thought the government should allow another referendum, while just 15 per cent thought they should withhold permission. As well as the SNP, the Scottish Greens also support independence, as do Alba, the new party formed by Ms Sturgeon’s rival and former ally Alex Salmond. He is campaigning for voters to deliver a ‘super majority’ among pro-independence parties on Thursday. UK ministers were spooked by a series of polls earlier this year which suggested support for independence had risen in Scotland. However, polls in recent days suggest that backing may have waned during the course of this election campaign. Some UK government insiders believe the chances of a pro-independence majority on Thursday are currently touch and go. A UK government spokesperson said: “Now more than ever, people in Scotland want to see the UK government and the devolved administrations working together to protect lives and livelihoods.
