Intelligence Squared Debate: CVHF Preview

Ahead of today’s Intelligence Squared Debate, debating Scotland’s upcoming referendum on the country’s independence, CVHF has conducted an initial poll to see what our festival goers think about one the biggest constitutional issues in the United Kingdom’s history.

This morning on the CVHF site, we asked 50 people to vote either YES, NO or DON’T KNOW. Here are the results:

YES: 16%

NO: 64%
