We examine the Holyrood election result and try to make sense of what it all means for the parties and its impact on the path to Scottish independence.
We also take a look at the Hartlepool by-election,and what it might tell us about Tory pro union strategy in Scotland.
It also,inevitably, leads us to the state of the UK Labour Party.
