Hi folks! As announced last night, here’s a bonus Roundup (aren’t we good to you?) summing up the final days of campaign bloggery. There’s nothing more that can be done or said: all that’s left now are the results, and their aftermath.
Yousuf charts the role Glasgow has played in the history of the Labour Party.
However, BellgroveBelle and Anne McLaughlin MSP look at some of Labour’s campaign material in the city and aren’t overly impressed. Allan doesn’t particularly like what he sees from them in neighbouring Renfrewshire either.
Cllr Cameron Rose explains why he is a Conservative, while Fitaloon endorses his local Tory candidate.
Stuart asks if the key question for this election revolves around David Cameron’s ability to bring about change. Alex Massie argues that Cameronism (is he worthy of an ‘-ism’ yet?) appears to stop at the Tweed.
I suppose in that context, maybe this Tory poster, flagged up by Andrew Reeves, which depicts the UK but omits the Western and Northern Isles, isn’t bad. It’s still pretty embarrassing when the message is â€œWe’re all in this togetherâ€, though.
Stephen Glenn sums up the LibDem position, with an obvious focus on Linlithgow and East Falkirk, where he’s been on the ballot paper.
The Shoogly Peg hopes for a Hung Parliament, while Subrosa is of the view that none of the parties deserve her vote.
Jeff discusses a blogpost he wishes he hadn’t published about postal votes â€“ and the unfortunate consequences it’s had for him. Caron looks both at that and the possibility that the Tory candidate in Livingston has broken the Data Protection Act.
Neil Craig looks at campaign activity (or perhaps, lack of it) in Glasgow, while The Shoogly Peg gets exasperated at everyone’s claim to being part of a ‘two-horse race’.
Angus Nicolson sums up the candidates’ positions in Na h-Eileanan an Iar, while Philosophical Zombie looks at the overall campaigns.
Lallands Peat Worrier gives us his version of the Charge of the Light Brigade.
Jeff takes the view that if David Cameron walks into Downing Street, his opponents should show grace in defeat.
Mr. Eugenides looks at what will come next for Labour, and is amused at what he sees.
Mark reminds us that there’s also been a Council By-Election in Glasgow today, to replace Steven Purcell.
Returning Scot looks at the mood of the nation, and reflects on attitudes to equality in Norway.
Caron has warm recollections of polling days past.
Finally, Ellen asked her kids what they thought of the election.
And that’s it: I’m aware that besides myself, Holyrood Patter, Malc and Subrosa will be liveblogging. If you’re doing the same, drop us a line in the Comments section, but that’s it for this Special Roundup â€“ I’ll be back on Sunday with the weekly edition, and as always, you can nominate posts for that by filling in the thingummydoowop on the right, or by sending us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re also on Twitter @ScottishRoundup. Bye-de-bye!
