I was slightly amused to see PoliticalBetting.com's Mike Smithson call for a move towards England-only opinion polls. The logic for this is impeccable, as no-one can deny political trends in Scotland bear at best a very weak resemblance to those south of the border, and therefore GB-wide polls will always give a slightly distorted picture of the pro-Tory swing that can be expected in English seats at the next election. But can you imagine the reaction of the usual suspects if this came to pass? Would Scottish Unionist start a rearguard "Keep Our Polls British!" campaign? He might even resort to quoting Burns again...or how about John Major?
