Poll: Scottish Tories facing 'wipe-out' at general election | The Scotsman |

The Conservatives face a near wipe-out in Scotland at the next Westminster election, a new poll has suggested.

Scots Tories, still reeling from the shock resignation of party leader Ruth Davidson last week, could be reduced from 13 MPs to just three, a survey for The Times found.

None of the 13 Scottish Tory MPs were among the 21 Conservative rebels who voted against the Government and have been told they will lose the party whip and be barred from standing for the party at the next election.

Nicola Sturgeon's SNP would jump from 35 seats to 51, the polling shows, almost as high as their high-water mark of 2015, when the party secured 56 of the 59 seats in Scotland.
