Labour Could Win Just 4 Seats In Scotland In 2015

The Scottish National Party, meanwhile, is predicted to win 54 seats.

Posted on

A new poll found that Labour would lose all but four seats in Scotland if an election was held tomorrow. The Scottish National Party, meanwhile, would win a massive 54 seats, in what would be a devastating set of results for Labour.

In other words, Labour could be wiped out in Scotland next year.

The poll, conducted by Ipsos Mori for STV, said Labour would only win 23% of the vote in Scotland, while the SNP would receive 52%, and a predicted 54 seats.

The news comes at an especially poor time for Labour, after its Scottish leader, Johann Lamont, resigned earlier this month, claiming that the party treats the Scottish Labour party as a "branch office of a party based in London".

1,026 people took part in the Ipsos Mori poll, which has a margin of error of 3%.
