    If Labour lose 19 seats as predicted that will make Ed Miliband less popular than Gordon Brown.

    That will hurt.

    Because the Conservative tactic of telling everyone in England that you would get the SNP dictating policy, would not have worked.

    It was the main tactic they were using.

    Maybe it was Nicola's fault though, for making it such a big deal.

    Exactly, Labour committed suicide in Scotland last September.

    PR is the 'fairest' system as far as I'm aware?

    To deter joke candidates, anyone standing for election has to pay a £500 deposit. You only get your deposit back if you get at least a 5% share of the vote.

    EDIT: Well... this post is redundant

    You have to deposit £500 to stand as a candidate. You need 5% of the vote otherwise you loose the money.

    I did mention earlier this may have been Nicola's plan all along. But it is very cynical. I just think it has all backfired.

    What did you expect Labour to do at the referendum? Campaign for an independent Scotland?

    They could have stood for a No vote without teaming up with the Tories.
