Saffron Dickson, 16, poses for a photograph in Glasgow city centre April 1, 2014. Saffron who is active in the Radical Independence Campaign said, "It's crazy not to have self determination. We need complete control over everything. It's the only way the Scottish people can make decisions for themselves and not by an out of touch government." When Scotland's nationalist government dropped the voting age to 16 for this year's referendum on independence, it was widely seen as banking on teenage radicalism to ensure a break with the United Kingdom. If so, it may have miscalculated. Two opinion polls and Reuters interviews with 25 Scottish teenagers in 10 different locations suggest the ruling Scottish National Party (SNP) can't be sure of their support in the Sept. 18 referendum. Overall, polls show Scots remain doubtful about separation, although the proportion of those supporting independence has increased over the past year. Picture taken April 1, 2014.
