Labour loses out as SNP and Tories snap up seats
ICM said the centrist Liberal Democrat Party was on 9 percent, up one point from last week, while the anti-European Union UK Independence Party fell two points to 6 percent.
She said: "We will speak up for the millions of Scots who have had enough of the uncertainty and division of the last few years".
SNP leader and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon pointed out that her party had ousted Labour from control of a Glasgow City Council after 40 years, and still had the largest number of councillors across the country.
And this, I suggest, is a problem for the first minister.
Meanwhile, Labour slumped to become the third largest party in Scotland's councils, and was kicked out of power in its Glasgow heartland for the first time in nearly 40 years.
Yet the task facing the SNP next month is to defend its remarkable success in winning 56 out of Scotland's 59 seats at the United Kingdom election in 2015, a success based not on winning a little less than a third of the vote, but on securing 50%. In retrospect, Nicola Sturgeon pushing for a second independence referendum when she did has turned out to be an absolute gift for her bitterest foes.
The SNP could "have a fight on their hands" to hold on to key north-east constituencies at next month's General Election, a leading politics expert has warned.
What was no more than a one-point lead over Labour in the local ballot boxes had seemed like small beer after the SNP's success in winning an overall majority at Holyrood a year earlier.
Monsoon hopes lift Sensex to new high The market breadth favoured the declines as 1,246 shares advanced against a fall of 1,588 shares, while 169 shares were unchanged. Both indices had hit their earlier highest levels on May 5, when the NSE index had touched 9,377 and Sensex, 30,177.
Nationally, May's party gained more than 550 council seats and swept to shock victories in mayoralty contests in the West Midlands and Tees Valley.
Not too long ago, the city's council would have been a banker for Labour.
As party leader Ruth Davidson launches the Scottish Conservative campaign for the general election in Edinburgh today (May 8), Ms Hair said she would be putting opposition to a second referendum at the heart of the local constituency battle in Angus.
"And as for the General Election, while you've always got to be careful about extrapolating from one election to another, the issue for Scotland becomes quite clearly focused".
Mr Cullinane said: "Our strong performance in North Ayrshire is down to our achievements in office, including the no cuts budget we set in March, and our municipal socialist vision of municipal bus services, a not-for-profit energy company and more council homes".
The SNP leader has framed the General Election as a choice between the Scottish Parliament's right to take decisions and the Conservative government at Westminster. "We will not be a government that presides over food bank Britain or asks teachers to go on the school gates and collect funds to pay the teachers' wages", he said.
But, equally, it could be a sign that the party has lost ground. And the SNP have not had any difficulty increasing their vote in local by-elections during the last two years.
