Tories' poll share falls to single figures... (in Scotland)
If you want proof about just how different politics is north of the border, then you need look no further than the latest TNS/BMRB poll for the Sunday Herald.
According to its latest figures, Labour is set to gain 49% of the Holyrood Constituency vote... as big as the vote shares of the Tories (9%), the Lib Dems (7%) and SNP (33%) put together.
Many of the Tories' Coalition's key reforms - the dismantling of the NHS, the introduction of higher tuition fees for higher education - apply to England, not the other home nations. It is likely that in five years time, Scotland will be a very different (and no doubt more egalitarian) place than England.
