According to [mention]andrewteale [/mention] Preview the count doesn’t start until 1pm.
The count starts at 1, results expected ‘from 4pm’
Almost as bad as Nevada. If you are going to have a next day count, at least start at 9am. Democracy delayed is democracy denied.
"Kings reign by Me, says Eternal Wisdom: and from that we must conclude not only that the rights of royalty are established by its laws, but also that the choice of persons is an effect of its providence." Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet
Awaiting full results for the Independents and Libertarian but confirmed as SNP win (47%) with Conservatives in second (20%), Labour third (12%) and Finlayson (10.5%) best of the rest. Apparently the Libertarian candidate knocked out at first stage after a coin toss tiebreak to decide the lowest number of votes.
