I’m grateful to Wikipedia for doing all the work to make the above table available. The trend revealed, from General Election in June 2017, to late January 2018, suggests a recovery from a temporary dip, resulting at least in part from the media love-in with Ruth Davidson and the Corbyn Effect. As Scots begin to forget Ruth, as it becomes clear she has forgotten them and has her eyes turned south and as Richard Leonard’s repeated gaffs destroy any Corbyn effect, they seem to be returning to confidence in the SNP as the only party they can trust to govern here and to represent our interests there.

If you need a reminder of the kind lies and distortions I’m referring to, see these recent examples:

Scotsman acts as Tory propaganda outlet in fake news about knife crime as statistics reveal dramatic fall in possession and use across Scotland

Herald incorrectly includes Scotland in surge of anti-Semitic incidents elsewhere in UK

How to make a ‘potentially massive’ oil find one that ‘isn’t a big find’? Just lie, omit and minimise. Ask BBC Scotland.

Herald imagines ‘mounting fears’ and tries to scare public against SNP policy on custody

Watch Herald report good news on child health for Scotland and then…..
