Age and wisdom

One thing is very clear with voter intentions when it comes to the matter of Scottish independence: the older the voter the higher the percentage vote against separation.

As the older voter is living longer, the SNP may have to consider introducing legislation at Holyrood excluding the over-60s from voting as the only way to secure a win for independence, otherwise the battle will never be won.
