Success for SNP in the Scottish election

leave a comment »

In the UK parliament since the 2010 election Labour has 41 of the 59 Scottish seats, and the Scottish National Party has 6. In the election for the Scottish parliament last Thursday SNP got 69 seats out of 129 (a gain of 22) and Labour got 37 (a loss of 9). Tories got 15 (losing 1) and Liberal Democrats got 5 (a loss of 11!). Has there been a great change of political opinions in just one year? Too early to say. But obviously a majority of Scots find it suitable to have a local party in power at home, rather than parties that take their orders from London. And what orders should they take, considering that the majority in London is unstable?
