When Nicola Sturgeon took the stage on 28 March before 3,000 devotees at the Scottish National party’s spring conference in Glasgow, the SNP’s deputy leader, Stewart Hosie, introduced her as “the only party leader in the UK who people actually like ... let me just say that again, the only party leader with positive approval ratings throughout the UK”.

After last September’s referendum – when Scotland voted convincingly to remain part of the UK – the leaders of Britain’s main political parties in London might have thought their Scottish troubles were over for a while.

They were wrong. Buoyed by the huge wave of popular enthusiasm generated by the pro-independence campaign, the Scottish National party – the key force behind the referenthdum – has seen its support continue to surge since it lost the vote.
