ONE opinion poll last week recorded Labour support in Scotland at just 14 per cent. If that wasn't shocking enough for Labour leaders, it put the party just above the Tories, who were on 12 per cent. As gleeful Conservatives sniffed the chance of overtaking Labour in Scotland for the first time in more than 60 years, one Nationalist MSP put the battle between the two parties in perspective: 'The SNP are on 59 per cent. This leaves the Tories and Labour like two bald men fighting over a comb.'
