Scottish Labour are falling apart

It's Titanic time for Labour in Scotland. Their leader Johann Lamont resigned last week claiming the London Labour HQ was treating Scotland like a branch office - which they are of course; they are one twentieth the size of Labour in England - did they expect to be equal partners?

And today the deputy leader in Scotland, Anas Sarwar, has just resigned as well.

Take a look at this Ipsos-MORI opinion poll to see why....

Voting intentions in Scotland
 
Labour are predicted to lose 37 Westminster seats in Scotland leaving them with only one consistency north of the border. The SNP meanwhile will romp from 6 seats to 54.

It looks like the SNP will deny Labour a majority at the next general election just as UKIP deny the Tories an outright win.

There needs to be a lot of political deal-making in the next six months!
