It appears that support for a referendum on independence hasn't suffered a catastrophic collapse, after all.
Although today's Royal Gazette reported that only "one in seven" people (14.3%) want the issue decided by referendum, the paper has confirmed that that should have read "seven in ten" (70%). The version of the story on the RG's website has not been corrected, however.
If the paper tabulated the results of such polls instead of writing them out in longhand, it might reduce the chance of such mistakes being made. The information would be easier to digest too:
