I am looking forward to the coalition negotiations in May a _lot_

The first post-referendum poll for Scottish Westminster voting intentions shows Labour in total meltdown North of the border.

SNP: 52%, Labour: 23%, Conservatives 10%, Lib-Dems and Greens: 6% each.

If this keeps up then Labour are going to get four Scottish seats, Lib-Dems one, and the rest of them will go SNP.

Which means it's remarkably likely that any party that wants power following the election is going to have to form a coalition with the SNP.

This is going to be _hilarious_.

(I have no idea if this level of support will continue. I will enjoy watching the political classes panic about it though.)
