It was the SNP wot won it

Well, the SNP have acheived their twin aims of dominance in Scotland and a Tory government in Westminster (does anyone beleive that wasn't their aim?).

When I got the email from Nick saying he won't deal with the SNP, I was very annoyed as we shouldn't be ruling out anything as Liberals (and also was secretly harbouring a wish for a Lab/Lib minority government with SNP acquiescence). However I thought he must have seen some terrible internal polling to make him have to say that.

When I saw the SNP on the news on eve of poll going on about how they would end austerity and write the budget, I was thinking "shut up, you're not helping"! Of course I'm sure this was deliberate...
