I suppose I should be claiming the prediction of the year, because I did say when the general election was called in the spring that Kezia Dugdale's days as Scottish Labour leader were probably numbered. But I must admit I was expecting the resignation to happen after Labour's vote share went down, not after a mini-recovery. As far as public appearances were concerned, there's been no pressure on her at all since the election.
So what does this all mean? A Corbynite takeover? Maybe...or maybe not. Remember how well Owen Smith did in Scotland. This is a Blairite party to its core, or at least it was until very recently. We could be in for a handover to yet another dreary clone, which to be fair might even be preferable to Neil Findlay.
UPDATE : Some really heartening news for the SNP in the Scottish subsample from the new Britain-wide YouGov poll. They're ahead of Labour by 38% to 28%, with the Tories yet again in third place on just 23%. YouGov subsamples should probably be taken a little more seriously than subsamples from other firms, because they appear to be separately weighted (although they still have a big margin of error due to the sample size).
Not quite such good news from the new ICM subsample, although of course that one isn't correctly weighted. Labour are very slightly ahead on 32%, with the SNP on 31% and the Tories on 27%.
Across all firms, the SNP have now had the lead in ten out of eighteen subsamples published since the election, and have been ahead of Labour in eleven out of eighteen.
