Nicola Sturgeon has been pushing for a second referendum on Scottish independence after a Panelbase survey found 55 percent of Scots would vote in favour of independence. But George Galloway pointed out a YouGov survey found it is now down to 53 percent. He claimed the figure did not include “don’t know” answers which he said voted against independence in 2014.
Speaking on a live Facebook broadcast for Alliance for Unity, Mr Galloway said: “Numbers are on our side.
“The two previous polls were not actually polls, they were Panelbase surveys and you can only participate in a Panelbase survey if you’ve already signed up to it.
“But in the latest polls the SNP lead was not 55 percent but 53 percent but only if you exclude the ‘don’t know’.
“In 2014 at the referendum, the ‘don’t know broke’ for us for ‘no’ by a huge proportion.
“Then there isn’t a majority at all in the latest opinion polls.
“Please contest all these fake narratives as they come up and raise the contradiction.”
The group, which was formed by former Labour MP George Galloway, has received a huge following on social media in just three weeks of its launch.
The group plans to secure the defeat of the SNP in May 2021 with an impact the same as the Brexit Party in the European Parliament elections in 2019 where they secured 29 of the 73 seats secured by the UK.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Galloway said: “It will have the same impact on the elections as the Brexit Party.
“I hope that we’ll achieve the same result.
“Don’t forget a million people in Scotland voted for Brexit.
“I think if you judge it by the wailing and gnashing of teeth of national activists, they’re very concerned about it.”

Alliance for Unity intends to bring an “end to the Neverendum on Scotland’s future”.
Mr Galloway explained it is “a coalition Government that will get Scotland off the hamster wheel that we’ve been on for 13 years”.
He continued: “Our case is simple, the Scottish people have spoken.
“The referendum was literally called decisive in the Edinburgh agreement which established the referendum.
