    to prove whether or not there is a democratic mandate for Scottish independence, to
    establish their right to demand a start to negotiations with the UK Government over
    Scottish independence. Leaving aside your own current view on independence, would
    you say there would be a proven democratic mandate for Scottish independence if ….A majority of voters vote Yes
    to independence in a referendum that both the Scottish Government and the UK Government agree to hold?
