Seven out of ten Scots 'back Ukip policy on immigration'
UKIP policies to curb immigration, cut overseas aid and crack down on benefits claimants are backed by a majority of Scots, a surprise new poll suggests, despite the repeated failure of Nigel Farage's anti-EU party to make a breakthrough north of the Border.
The survey shows nearly seven out of 10 Scots back stricter immigration controls, a key pledge in Ukip's manifesto for tomorrow's European elections.
Just over half want international aid budgets to be cut, while six out of 10 people say benefits should only be available to those who have lived in the UK for at least five years
A spokesperson for the Scottish government told The JT:" Its only one opinion poll, this government prefers the opinion polls that portray Scotland as a Guardian-reading leftist culture suffused with balsamic vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil.
Its time pollsters produced more accurate soundings by rigourously reporting the only opinions that matter- the thoughts inside Alex Salmond's head."
