A USA-wide survey carried out by Friends of Scotland has revealed that almost two-thirds of Scots living in America would vote against the country’s upcoming independence referendum.

One of the Friends of Scotland’s most famous supporters is the highly revered actor Sir Sean Connolly, known world-wide for his pride in his Scots heritage. A spokesperson for the Better Together Campaign told the media that the majority of Scots or thier descendents living in the USA obviously agreed with President Obama’s comment on the subject – ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’

The spokesperson added that Scots in all professions across the country are saying ‘No thanks’ to the possibility of separation from the rest of the United Kingdom even although they are not allowed to vote as theyt're not in residence. The poll will take place on 18 September, with the referendum period now up and running for two months.

The survey also revealed that many of those who took part believed that not enough consideration had been given to an independent Scotland’s position within the 21st century community of nations, especially as regards consulates and embassies. However, almost all the respondents gave USA tourism and its commercial value as one of the most financially convincing arguments for voting to stay in the United Kingdom.
