Election Time

Well, today is election day here in Scotland, and the poll is, according to the media, too close to call.

We may be on the verge of witnessing Labour lose a Scottish election for the first time in my lifetime, and the Scottish National Party move from opposition to government in their place.

Personally, I'd rather see Scotland stay in the Union than take the road to independence, but it seems that nationalism's popularity is at an all-time high.

The SNP won't be getting my vote, but there will be at least one benefit to me if they get in - they're proposing to wipe out the student loan debts of all Scots.

I'll be eagerly awaiting the results tomorrow morning - when Scotland could be about to make political history.

Hello from Berneray (population 128) in the Outer Hebrides.

Have voted, and blogged, and taken pictures. Here we've had a fine day for it all:

I noticed something in one of "The Penny Liars"/"Red Top" publications today! Every time an article concerning the election appeared lots of red font appeared!

I think something subliminal was going on but can't workout what, your in the industry do you know? ;0)

Silver Sprite: The weather on Berneray looks wonderful. It was warm here in Aberdeen yesterday, but it's overcast today.

Mirk: That's one of the benefits of living in a democracy with a free press - we in the media are free to try to affect the results of election, whether subtly or not!
