    In our latest Panelbase opinion poll, conducted last week in association with the Sunday Times, we wanted to complete the work we started previously in analysing the public’s reaction to Labour’s election strategies.

    Two nights of political debate on the BBC: Six unionists, two nationalists. What’s that all about, then? Because by pretty much any sort of rational measure, that’s not a fair or proportionate line-up. Those six Unionists are representing parties with just three MPs in Scotland, whereas the two nationalists are representing 56 MPs. Now of course, […]
