Silly me for listening to those "close to the action"! What a win for Lyndsay Roy, a majority of 6737, an increase in our share of the vote and hope once again for the party.
That being said, and I don't want to put a damper on a great night (two council election wins as well), my previous points about trust remain. This was fought on local issues and hammered an SNP council record. I am elated tonight but I will be contented when I see a deeper turn in our national poll numbers and folk saying not just that Gordon's the man of the credit crunch moment but that he's the man for the next election as well. Still a brilliant night for us, especially for Lyndsay and Cammy, (though not for my ability to predict election wins!)
