Total Vote: 482
Yes, I think a pro-independence majority elected to the Scottish parliament should grant the authority and legitimacy to the parliament to hold a referendum on Scottish independence.
No, I think the Scottish parliament must get the permission of the UK Government to hold a referendum on Scottish independence
