The difference is that the Scots are prepared to vote differently to change things, whereas in England the only "alternative" seems to be UKIP. Whatever your views of the SNP they have offered Scottish voters a genuine alternative, with the result that both Labour and Tories are spent forces there, at least for the foreseeable future.

Speculating now - if Scotland were to become independent, I imagine that the SNP would find it much more difficult to keep that level of control and that new voting lines would begin to emerge - I wonder if an independent Scotland would consider proportional representation? I think there is a healthy undercurrent of greens and other progressives beyond the SNP that could work together to form a properly representative coalition.

I suspect the Lib Dems will re-emerge in parts of England, which won't actually help Labour but may at least restrict the Tories overall majority.
