Political arrogance boosts support for independence
Despite Governor Hain's amateur dramatics about the 'Balkanisation of Britain' and his arrogant dissmissals of Wales' capabilities as a nation, support for Welsh independence is growing, according to a new poll.
The latest poll, conducted by the Wales on Sunday newspaper (21/01/07), shows support for independence at 32%, with a minority of respondents - 49% - opposed to independence.
The telephone poll asked 500 people - 125 in each of the north, mid, south-west and south-east areas of Wales.
This shows support for independence - now that it is suddenly debated publicly following the BBC's poll last week - on the increase.
This clearly demonstrates the need for Welsh independence to be on the political agenda so that the case for Wales can be put to the people.
