  1. My guess is that approx 10% of your readers are Scottish. The remaining 90% will have little knowledge of how Scotland is governed. My cynicism leads me to believe that quite a few of your voters may be media-savvy SNP supporters or, as we call them , across our border that doesn’t exist, CyberNats. The English Tories need to learn lessons from the SNP propaganda machine. It is magnificent and sends a shiver up my spine.

  2. Hi…
    The Press Gazette held the survey on its website from May 12-18, and gave 2700 readers the option to select Nicola Sturgeon, Rishi Sunak, Keir Starmer, Boris Johnson, Matt Hancock, Dominic Raab or other as the most impressive politician during the pandemic so far.
