    Talk of Scotland’s parliamentary election is not about whether the governing party will win, but by how much.

    The pro-independence Scottish National Party (SNP) has led the Scottish Parliament since 2007 and appears on course to secure an unprecedented fourth term on May 6, when Scots go to the polls to elect 129 parliamentarians to the 22-year-old devolved institution.

    UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he will not allow a second referendum on independence but the Scottish National Party says it will push for one if it manages to secure a majority.
