    Full question wording

    An independence referendum in Scotland can only legally be held if the UK government agrees to it. The UK government agreed to the 2014 referendum after the SNP won a landslide in the 2011 Scottish Parliament elections. Supporters of another referendum argue that: • Circumstances have fundamentally changed since 2014 where one of the main arguments was that Scotland would have to leave the European Union if it became independent. • Scotland has now been “dragged out of the EU against its will” given that 62% of voters in Scotland voted Remain. Opponents of another referendum argue that: • The 2014 vote was “once in a generation” and settled the issue • Holding another one opens the door to a “neverendum” where the question gets repeated until Scots eventually vote for independence. Which comes closest to your view?
