    Is she the one who criticised Douglas Alexander for being a career politician even though she's become an MP at 20?
    No, a career politician is when you are a researcher, then a spad, and so on until you stand for a safe seat.

    Still, as others are saying her election is an example of choosing the party over the candidate, and indicates how hopelessly outdated the voting system is.

    I admire your commitment to live in denial.

    It's a shame not all of you have the stomach. Most of you vote for SNP but as a country you are all too scared to vote to leave in the referendum.

    It is a shame the English show strength and leadership. Please explain to me why the Englsih are for more superior Than you lot?

    It pretty much is. Let's wait for a couple of cold winters and go again.
    Taking aside your ill advised comment on dead pensioners what was the proportion of No votes from the elderly (let's say 65+)? 100%? 90?

    Anyway, are you going to answer the question, or perhaps tell us why you saw fit to tell eleven lies in a single post?

    I think Buntin works rogue from HQ, posting things not even they are silly enough to say themselves.

    Do you mean what %age of the total No vote came from pensioners? How the hell would I know? The Ashcroft and YouGov polling in the days afterwards had the pensioners voting 70/30 in favour of No.

    Both polls had Yes winning the under 55 vote.

    My comment was obviously tongue in cheek so there's no need for the faux outrage from anyone. I don't think saying that pensioners are more likely to die sooner than non-pensioners is a particularly contentious statement.

    Have you calculated that using the polling companies' weightings or averaged it out against the general population share? Because nothing in YouGov seems to suggest that to me.

    Oh of course it was.

    There aren't enough pensioners in Scotland for what you're saying to be true.

    Errrrrr no.

    That's about as truthful as the YeSNP campaign and as accurate as SNP forward looking strategy.

    There are.

    They're hiding in the same place as the SNPs mythical EU legal advice and fully costed economic policy.

    Even if it were true it's an odd swipe to be making at the OAPs for ruining his dream of a divided Britain.

    Unfortunately the nationalist buzzwords are sufficient to win votes and support from a lot of people. Maybe those in Scotland slating Labour for abandoning the left could have read the Labour and SNP manifestos, then played 'spot the difference'. There were very few except for Trident and independence.

    To be honest, I think the backlash had been brewing since Blair. Labour's latest manifesto might have been its more leftist for a long time, but the damage was done a long time ago.

    I find it very odd that Labour wasn't destroyed in Scotland after the 'illegal wars' and two terms of Thatcher-lite politics, but was destroyed when it was led by the son of a famous socialist trying to get back to old Labour. Seems all the SNP had to do was say 'anti austerity' and field virtually anyone as a candidate.

    The SNP successfully positioned themselves as an alternative to Labour, something they previously weren't able to do in Westminster elections. Although they have been eating away at Labour support since the 2007 Holyrood election.
