Podcast: The Scottish Conservatives and the makeup of Holyrood in 2021

Sir John Curtice, Ian Montagu, and Alex Scholes look at whether three polls that have emerged over the past fortnight confirm the picture of a further rise in support for independence that has been seen over the last few months. They also discuss what we know about the likely composition of Holyrood following the 2021 Scottish Parliament election, and examine how voters feel about the new Scottish Conservative leader, Douglas Ross.
