Scotland signs up for a ban

scotHere are the Scottish constituencies – and what a fantastic contribution they are making to the overall total of almost 47,000 signatures for a ban on driven grouse shooting.

Last time, Scotland, in 6 months, produced c2900 signatures out of 33,700. This time, in just over three months, Scotland has already produced c4800 signatures out of a total of 46,800 or so. That’s a 65% increase in absolute numbers in about 55% of the time and a threefold increase in rate of signing at the moment.  And clearly, Scotland’s share of the vote is  over 10% this time around, compared with under 9% last time.

Here are the ‘last time in 6 months’ and ‘this time in 3 months’ totals.  They are ordered, slightly strangely, by how many signatures these constituencies had received back in May – but that shows not much change from last time or from now (which is, interesting in itself).
