Many thanks to Scottish Skier for pointing out a fascinating - and somewhat disturbing - detail from the Panelbase poll. The Sunday Times asked a series of questions that was clearly designed to justify a story about "anti-Englishness", so they must have been startled that what was actually uncovered was evidence that there is significantly more anti-Scottishness in England than there is anti-Englishness in Scotland. A full 22% of respondents in England and Wales have a negative perception of Scotland, compared to just 15% of respondents in Scotland who have a negative perception of England. The problem is particularly rife among Tory voters, 29% of whom dislike Scotland.
Ludicrously, the Sunday Times ignored their own findings, and went ahead with their pre-planned "anti-English" headline anyway. They clung to the fact that "one in four" Yes voters have negative perceptions of England - even though that falls short of the proportion of Tory voters in England who have a negative perception of Scotland.
It's hard not to suspect that this wave of anti-Scottish sentiment has been at least partly caused by the carefully-planned efforts of the Tory party and the right-wing London media to whip up Haggis-Phobia in the run-up to the general election, in order to maximise the chances of a Tory win. And these are the people who claimed they would always put "our beloved United Kingdom" before party interest? Don't make me laugh. Fear and loathing are not compatible with a glorious union.
On their own heads be it (again).
