Just that really. Only seen yes people sharing it on FB. Other parties seem to be ignoring it, vaguely siting poor ethics (your identity and political views shouldn't be stored together). It's going to be extremely one sided and be contrary to all the opinion polls isn't it?

I opened it and went through the questions, then got them asking for all your personal details and also noted the absence of overt identification that it wasn't a government survey. Given the SNP record on knowing about DP regulation and the fact that all they'd be doing is using the info in order to target your home for indoctrination, I declined.

As you say it will then be used as a demonstration of support for indyref2. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

More shite.

I have, and I shared it too.

WankersHacksandThieves Tue 13-Sep-16 20:31:21

Foof, can I ask why?

nolassie Tue 13-Sep-16 20:45:10

Sorry, I should've said I did complete the form, but felt uneasy filling in my details and didn't want to encourage others in case there were repercussions. Damned if you do, damned if you don't indeed.

I don't think it can be evidence support as it.asks how you voted last time.

I did think it was a very poorly constructed survey though - I expected far more detail, and less ambiguous questions.

BeJayKayven Tue 13-Sep-16 21:19:53

I didn't, because I didn't like the need for all the personal details and as itsallgoing said, it isn't well written at all.

I did it. I know fine well they care not one bit of my opinion as no voter. I am waiting on the leaflets, letters and door canvassers to start trying to persuade me to vote yes. It won't change my mind.

The questions were just so basic that there is now way this was a genuine attempt at getting folks real opinions.

I completed it several times, once I get my program working I'm going to answer it thousands of times.

WankersHacksandThieves Tue 13-Sep-16 21:37:33

Maybe they were basing the questions at the typical Yes voter or they were taking into account the shit education system?

Try the one on the Conservative site - for balance, even if you don't vote for them they are at last holding the Unionist line.

Roseformeplease Tue 13-Sep-16 21:39:18

at least.....not at last (they always have done).

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Tue 13-Sep-16 21:40:56

Try the one on the Conservative site

Have you got a link? I couldn't find a survey just a petition?

Roseformeplease Tue 13-Sep-16 21:51:53

Sorry, it was a petition.


BeJayKayven Tue 13-Sep-16 22:10:39

Ive already signed that one Rose it seems to be the only alternative

How did you get around the name/postcode requirements ?

cdtaylornats Tue 13-Sep-16 23:05:27

You can generate postcodes pretty randomly. I don't necessarily need my entries accepted just tying up their time. I generate fake gmail addresses too Nstur<letter><number>

Noseypoke Wed 14-Sep-16 21:28:49

I've completed it about 10 times. Haven't given my real details obviously. Hope those email addresses I made up don't actually belong to real people....

LunaLoveg00d Wed 14-Sep-16 23:25:32

I'm not completing it because I'll be damned if I give the SNP any ammunition to call a second Indy Ref. This is yet another massive waste of cash. If anyone knocks on the door and asks about Indy Ref 2 they'll be told to feck off and return when hell has frozen over because that's when I'll be voting SNP.

Luckily I live in part of the country where the NO voters were/are overwhelmingly in the majority.

I went onto the site but I thought it was ethically very dodgy - there was no info about how the results would be used (yes, I know it's bloody obvious, but they should at least say how they're going to be analysed, and what decisions will be informed by the analysis etc.), and also no explanation of why they needed contact details, or how anonymity of the results would/wouldn't be protected. So I didn't complete it.

trixymalixy Thu 15-Sep-16 21:56:00

It really is just a gathering of contact details isn't it? There's no way the results can be used to inform anything as so many on both sides are filling it in multiple times. No way are they getting my details.

Who cares if there is another referendum, if the YES side wins it will be tied up in court for decades, the SNP having given us all the valid reasons to complain with, if the NO side win the SNP will start campaigning for IndyRef3.

I would expect almost everywhere except the central belt to declare they are staying in the UK and can't be dragged out against there will.

I take it by "central belt" you mean west of Edinburgh?
