Ok, Ok..

... I got it wrong, the SNP made it by one - but I was a lot closer than anyone else. For what it's worth, this is probably the best possible ourcome, apart from the dead heat, that could be hoped for. I doubt very much that anything will now happen for the next 4 years.
Pretty much like the last four. As somebody else remarked, the view of the Scottish Parliament under Labour and the LibDems is negative - ban this, ban that. Posutive? Not a lot. They tried with the bill to help with multi-ownership properties, but hedged it all so much that nothing really changed.
In a way, it makes Scotland even more attractive. The best governments are those that leave people alone to get on with it. For the first time in at least a couple of generations, the Scots will have to think clearly about what is really important to them.

Presumably there won't now be a referendum on independence but, if Scotland were to become independent, would that be the end of the term "British"?
