The English don't want a Scottish PM

So doubtless all English electors will refuse to vote Lib Dem or Labour at the next election. This just proves that you can get opinion polls and statistics to say almost anything you want. Note how the question was loaded. According to the article they were asked whether it was right for a Scottish MP to be prime minister now Scotland has its own parliament. A pity they did not then go on to ask whether or not a Scottish MP as leader of a party at a general election would be sufficient cause for them to change who they voted for.

Funny I don't remember all the polls before the last GE about whether it would be right for a Welshman of, er, Transylvanian stock, or something, to be PM.

So maybe this is just opportunistic stirring.
