“The Union, she cannae take any more, Captain!”

Oh how I laughed as a bible-bashing nerd who can barely string a coherent sentence together took the Westminster parliamentary seat of Glasgow East for the Scottish National Party with a swing of nearly 23%. This, following a concerted fightback by a party that until recently could have put up a monkey as candidate and be assured of its election with a massive majority. SNP leader Alex Salmond must be the smuggest man in Britain this morning.

Labour or Death was Margaret Curran’s response to her defeat last night.

So death it is then.
