Labour go in for a minority administration which would probably be voted in by the Conservatives without any concessions.
Considering the national Labour party explicitly forbade any Conservative-Labour coalitions in local government in Scotland and then kicked their entire Aberdeen group out off of the party for doing just that, it is not going to happen...
Hard for Labour to do, hard to justify later. Would need to be able to show one hell of a one sided deal. I can imagine Davidson leading the biggest party yet having to offer confidence and supply to the party that came third. And having enough class to pull it off.
Currently a supporter of the Premiership of Boris Johnson unlike half the Scottish Conservative party.

Feeling amongst my SNP chums is that if the election had been held a week later, they would have lost at least 3 more in Glasgow to us, NE Fife and P&NP to the LDs and Tories, and probably a few others across the central belt. They had never known an election like it. Probably 1979 comes closest for them, but they didnt lose as many then.
So what is their fightback plan,the good news for the SNP is that with so many marginals in Scotland it would only require a small swing-back for them to regain several seats lost in June.
The problem at the moment is they dont know what to do. Some are arguing for them to turn left - to out-Corbyn Corbyn. Which begs the question "You said you were already left wing!". Others say they need to ditch the left-wing language.
Ultimately they risk being trapped like a Rabbit in headlights.
