The Daily Record are running a poll today asking "Is William Wallace a freedom fighter or a terrorist?" Interesting use of the present tense there, but it gets even better, because the two possible answers are "Yes" and "No". That hasn't deterred people from voting, and the current result is Yes 80%, No 20%. Make of that what you will.
Today's Scot Goes Pop poll will hurt your head much less. It's a genuine Yes/No question - "Is the Daily Record a good newspaper?" You can find the voting form at the top of the sidebar, and multi-voting is enabled, so you can vote for as many answers as you like.

Today's Scottish subsample from the GB-wide Ashcroft poll : SNP 40%, Conservatives 22%, Labour 21%, Greens 8%, Liberal Democrats 8%. Farage's mob failed to trouble the scorer this time.
When Ashcroft's focus groups in England were asked to list the good things that the UK government have done over the last five years, apparently one of the suggestions offered was "managing to hold onto Scotland". Doesn't it make you feel wonderful to be talked about like a trophy wife? Perhaps not.
