Labour seems to be the party best placed to make gains in Scotland in the general election.

New SNP leader and First Minister John Swinney has vowed to work to get his party into a winning position, but pollsters have warned he faces a “major uphill task”.

The Westminster election will therefore mark an early test for Swinney – who only took over as leader of his party earlier this month, returning for a second shot at the job.

The SNP has for so long been the dominant force in politics north of the border, but a recent YouGov poll put Labour, led in Scotland by Anas Sarwar, 10 points ahead.
