Heavy falls for Sterling as Yes vote lead in new poll

The latest poll conducted by YouGov showed that the campaign for Scottish independence had marginally overtaken the No vote for the first time this year by any pollster.  However, the poll stripped out the “Don’t know” element and varied dramatically from the YouGov poll they conducted a month ago showing the No campaign 22% ahead.  However, market confidence was perhaps undermined by George Osborne hurriedly offering “a plan of action to give more powers to Scotland” and Sterling dropped to 1.6125 against the US Dollar, its lowest level since November last year.
