Boris Johnson has seen support for Scottish independence increase since taking over the UK last summer. A new survey this week showed that 58% of those polled are now in favor of leaving the UK, the highest since the first referendum held in 2014. Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross told the Prime Minister he was now is the time to stop being “complacent” if he wants to save the union.

Speaking to ITV News, Mr Ross said: “Successive governments at UK level have been decentralized and forgotten.

“And this defeatism and disinterest that has crept into the narrative about the future of Scotland’s place in the union only works for the SNP.”

The Ipsos Mori survey conducted between October 2 and 9 surveyed 1,045 Scots across the country and found that only 42% of those polled were now in favor of saving the UK.

Professor Jane Green of the UK Election Study suggested the poll results should serve as a “wake-up call” for Boris Johnson and his government.

Professor Green said: ‘If the referendum were to take place today, I think it would really be a referendum on Scottish independence, Scottish identity, all of those things the Scots held so dear to them in 2014.

“But that’s also what’s happening now. We have, of course, the pandemic.

“The same poll showed Boris Johnson’s scores to be very low in Scotland.

“It’s a real wake-up call for the Conservative Party right now.”

The Prime Minister has already challenged Boris Johnson to accept a new referendum after the SNP won a majority of Scottish parliamentary seats in the December general election.

But Mr Johnson rejected the request, reaffirming that he remains committed to preserving the UK.

Ipsos MORI Scotland Managing Director Emily Gray said the results made “a grim reading for trade unionists”.

Ms Gray said: “Our latest poll will put pressure on the nationalists’ approach but make it dark for unionists.

“The Scottish public has gone even further to support an independent Scotland, with record numbers now saying they will vote Yes.”
