Salm Down Dear, It's Only An Election

Final results from the Highlands & Islands regional vote here.

Sadly Eleanor Scott of the Greens was pipped to the post - just 400 votes shy of getting in.

There'll be time for proper analysis but at this point it seems to me a lot of folk voted SNP twice - they liked the constituency candidate (in our case Fergus Ewing) and liked the idea of Alex Salmond as First Minister. Of course that's not what the 2nd vote is for - it's to elect another bunch of regional MSPs. I wonder how many people who voted SNP twice realised they were electing John Finnie, Jean Urquhart and Mike Mackenzie.

Who? Exactly.

Lots to chew over but not right now. Waybuloo's almost on, pasta's cooking and then it'll be bath time. Priorities, people - priorities...
