When even the bought and paid for voters desert Labour

BBC NEWS | Scotland | Glasgow, Lanarkshire and West | SNP stuns Labour in Glasgow East

The Nationalists overturned a Labour majority of 13,507 to win by only 365 votes with a swing of 22.54%.

It's only 5:45 in the morning, early even for me, but is it too early for a wee dram in celebration. This is a result that even Gordon can't ignore, though he will spend the next few days wandering around whistling with his fingers in his ears shouting "I can't hear you".

Classic Brown response - we must "listen and understand" the result.

Let me help you, Gordon: the entire nation dislikes you and wants you gone.
