They are all mad buggers.  And that's why they deserve our votes.  Stick it to them!

Mad buggers or not,  I hadn't received a polling card. Went to vote, I was asked for my name and address, and that was it. No ID requested, no other questions. Open to fraud I'd have thought. Very surprised.

Exit poll has made me suicidal. How can Scotland be governed by a Tory government under these circumstances? Tories will be vindictive and punitive. No union now.

That's rotten, Mike M, my commiserations. Just my luck up here to be in the only constituency to return a Labour MP in an SNP landslide. He's been a good local MP, but I feel doubly disenfranchised. Not part of the Scottish voice, and no voice in Westminster. Apologies to all boarders for talking politics here, but it has been a devastating night. Only BGTYALOAD has any chance of lifting my spirits today!

Coincidentally I played that at 11 volume last night :). Apologies for any typo's - combo of Stella and wine & using a tablet. For me this absolutely proves there's no such thing as a pointless vote. 27 people ffs!

..without being able to form a coalition with Labour, the 56 will be powerless. Still good to have representation as the third largest party in select committees, and at PMQT..

..I would demand 27 re-counts..

Yeah. What he said.

And incidentally, the Scottish government remains bound to uphold the Human Rights Act even after Westminster abolishes it, so maybe it's time to think about emigrating. Just pack an extra sweater or two.

One thing I do find curious...is why the Scots voted overwhelmingly against nationalism 6 months ago, and have now apparently made a complete U turn? I'm not aware of any dramatic change of circumstances during that period that would have prompted such a response...something doesn't add up....

It's not a vote for independence, or for nationalism, as the right wing Westminster media woudl have you believe. It's a vote for the sort of government we want but can't get from Westminster, a broadly left of centre social democracy. Many more people voted for SNP in the election, including my Yorkshire wife, than voted for independence. We all feel completely let down by the failure of Westminster to implement the promises it made in order to to keep us in the union, and by a Socttish Labour Party ruled entirely from London.

I hope that explains things in a way that the Daily Mail and Telegraph and Express find themselves unable to.

On a lighter note, our pub quiz team picked up 150 last night in a round entitled Axemen. Very satisfying, especially as it was only split three ways!

... but I should admit that, for those reasons, I also voted for independence in the referendum. What the hell - Man never plays up here anyway!

It's not an anti-English thing either, by the way. Some of my best friends etc, and even my wife ...
