Party Const Regn +/- Tot
After 81 of 129 seats declared
LAB 32 0 -7 32
SNP 15 16 +16 31
LD 9 2 -1 11
CON 4 2 -1 6
Others 0 1 -7 1

And so, that is how the polls currently stand.

What a fiasco - from the electronic voting to the man beating the shit out a election box with a golf club. Ah, bless. The whole counting process has been marred by errors, electronic malfunctions, and fog. Personally, i have to admit that i was slightly confused when i voted last night as the ballots just had the different party logos, rather than just their name. As such, it took me a while to figure out the differences between "Scottish National Party" and "Scottish Voice" because shit, i'm an immigrant and i don't know all the different party logos. i had a wee chuckle, however, when going down the ballot and noticing the party, Scotland Against Crooked Lawyers. i'm not sure who started that party, but i'm going to assume that they're the kind of person who doesn't easily let go of a grudge. Kind of reminds me of that old joke:

Q: What do you call 100 lawyers chained together at the bottom of the ocean?

A: A good start!
