Scottish entrepreneurs: how would you vote in a second referendum?

Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced her intention to hold a second independence referendum in Scotland by spring 2019, at the latest. Prime minister Theresa May has so far rejected that request.

The Federation of Small Businesses in Scotland conducted a poll among 440 of its members in May 2016 showing that more than half (57%) of small business owners felt the country should not hold a second referendum.

We want to see if that view has changed after the rest of the UK voted to leave the EU on 23 June. Scotland overwhelmingly voted to remain by 62% to 38%.

An Opinium/Observer poll on Sunday found that the majority (54%) of British people believe last June’s vote for Brexit has made the breakup of the United Kingdom more likely. Among Scottish voters 63% think it more likely, against 16% who disagree.

As a small business owner in Scotland, would you vote differently, given the chance again, or is your opinion on Scottish independence unchanged? Do you believe another vote is in the best interests of Scotland and the small business economy?
