{{ There is a risk in setting a bar- in 1979 Scotland had is first vote on a devolved parliament, th vote was won with just over 50% but was repealed by Westminister on the grounds not a high enough proportion voted for. Mainly as the bar they set was higher than any elected government had ever achieved.
Allowing Westminster to set a bar on if they accept the result is a risky business. And I'd hate to think what would happen if they set it at 70% or something and yes won by 69% and were denied independence. I suspect that would lead to real trouble.
Sturgeon is a canny politician though, she isnt going to hold a vote whilst the polls are so close to 50%. She doesnt want even a narrow victory, she wants a clear unequivical one. And for her that means persuading the people by laying out the full case, leaving the SNP less open to the sort of arguments made last time on the economy and stuff they had no or insufficient answers for.
Boris therefore by denying a referndum is helping her a lot, she can still give the red meat to the harcore base of the party, setting a date for when she wants one (2 years for now) and laying out things like the White Paper, making the general case, whilst at the same time she gets the breathing space required by Boris' continued denial to build up the numbers for independence. }}

Briefly mentioned. Locke and Rosseau get more of the credit.
