We return after a three week hiatus as a survey by pollster Lord Ashcroft put backing for Scottish independence at 46 per cent, with 43 per cent against.

Support for independence rose to 52 per cent, with 48 per cent against, when those who said they did not know how they would vote or said they would not vote were removed.

Lesley considers the significance of this reverse Boris bounce and just where this leaves not only the Yes movement but the SNP leadership.

Ruth Davidson's popularity among English Conservatives has plummeted. We ask what kind of future she and the Scottish Tories face with Johnson as PM and party leader.

It's just over two years since the Grenfell Tower fire and after my recent stay in London I examine what, if anything, has changed in Kensington and Chelsea.

Along the way we discuss the appointment of Alister Jack as Scottish Secretary, Liz Truss's meeting with right wing US  "think tanks", and the potential for a snap ,pre Brexit, General Election.

There might be a wee mention of Dundee United in there as well.
