Scot Nats still just ahead in Scotland…

Undoubtedly the more important of the other regional Assembly elections is the one in Scotland, not least for the difficulties a loss might mean for Labour, or indeed any of the London based unionist parties, should the SNP replicate its poll lead on polling day. Iain Dale has the latest poll of polls from Weber Shandwick. The Nats look solid enough, but the lead over Labour is very narrow.
