Labour holds Westminster and Holyrood seats despite swing

From BBC news: Labour keeps Cook’s Commons seat.

A swing of 10% to the SNP is not to be sniffed at, but I guess NuLab will be taking the win as a mandate to carry on regardless. Shame that… And although the SNP issue of bringing back essential services to St John’s Hospital in Livi was well-intentioned, could they have managed to do it anyway? (says a super-pessimist…)

The other one came as a surprise to me. Thought there was a general shift towards the alternative parties in Holyrood. Shows you how much I know. Don’t place any bets based on my predictions…
