Conservatives beat Labour in Scotland

As I wrote this, the Conservatives are ahead of Labour in the Scottish Parliament elections.

The SNP has 49%, Conservatives 24% and Labour 19%.

Labour has done okay elsewhere (and probably has won the London mayoralty) but to come third in behind the Conservatives would be like coming behind National in the Maori seats in NZ.

As the SNP does not have a majority, it can not force a second referendum on independence, which is good.
