The latest Panelbase polling, published by Wings Over Scotland, reveals some worrying figures for Richard Leonard's branch office.

In terms of the constituency vote, the poll predicts Labour would fall by three points to just 19%.

That's well below the SNP on 41% and the Conservatives on 27%, both unchanged.

Meanwhile, the LibDems would go up by two percentage points (to 8%), the Greens by one (to 3%) and Ukip by one (to 2%).

Even James Kelly would be able to work out the stark warning these numbers send out to his party – though their woes don't stop there.

The list vote also sees Scottish Labour on 19% – which would be a 4% fall on its share of the Holyrood election in 2016.

The SNP are unchanged on 36%, and the Tories down 1% to 26%.

It comes just ahead of Scottish Labour's conference and amid a reignited civil war between Leonard and Kezia Dugdale.

It also compounds the party's Westminster woes, with an extensive YouGov poll last month predicting Labour would see five of their seven Scottish seats lost to the SNP.

The results show a need for the pro-independence parties to be cautious, however.

With this vote share, it is likely there would no longer be a pro-independence majority at Holyrood.

And we know how reliable the other parties are at standing up for Scotland...
