Letter: Scottish poll

Click to follow
Sir: Douglas Fraser writes (report, 13 September) that "the Scottish referendum results far surpassed the expectations of politicians and pollsters". Politicians maybe; pollsters? Not so.

The MORI Scotland survey for Scottish Television, released last week, reported on the first question 75 per cent "yes" (it was 74.3 per cent); on the second question 61 per cent "yes" (it was 63.5 per cent). Which pollsters did he have in mind? Clearly not MORI Scotland.
