Been watching betfair, the TV and online coverage and have noted the following:

  • SNP odds dropped from 2.22 to 1.03
  • Labour odds lengthen from 1.5 to 5
  • a single rumor gradually spreading to several normally reputable places
  • Labour campaign manager looking decidedly downbeat on the bbc
  • SNP commentator on the BBC election programme looking chirpier and chirpier
  • Margaret Curran arriving at the poll with a candidates fixed face on

I’m going to put all these together and call the Glasgow East By election for the SNP. (it’s 00:42)

As an aside, involving Dougie Alexander in a debate about his sister was inexcusable. If I’d been in his position on the programme tonight, I’d have been arrested for assault.
