When even the bought and paid for voters desert Labour
The SNP has pulled off a stunning by-election victory by winning Glasgow East, one of Labour's safest seats.
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".
