Are you happy?

We've gone from SNP to Tory by a massive 10,000 votes. i voted Tory for the first time to out SNP. I have no interest in indyref2. I had to vote tactically and I think 10,000 others may have done the same.

Went from snp to lib dem in the area I'm in. I'm happy, I voted tactically as well as I don't want another indy ref either. If I was having to vote for actual policies and not tactically I would have voted differently (although still not snp).

On 3rd recount, still waiting...

Chattermummy Fri 09-Jun-17 06:10:47

Tory, don't know how much they won by I'm just shocked that so many Scottish people have voted Tory. I don't want another Indy ref 2, now is definitely not the right time, but I do not believe the tories care one little dot about Scotland

Are you Glenrothes Justmuddling? My Facebook said there is 1 vote in it apparently?

Justmuddlingalong Fri 09-Jun-17 06:13:25

Yes, round about that neck of the woods, Dailystuck71. Was 3 votes in it at an earlier count, now quoting 1 vote.

Dailystuck71 Fri 09-Jun-17 06:15:58

Blimey, that's close!

I can't vote in GEs.

Argyll&Bute kept the SNP MP (who I wouldn't recognize if I'd met him on the street) but he lost 8.3% and the Conservative candidate came pretty close. 36% SNP, 33.2 Con (+18.3%), 18.2% LibDem, 12.6 % Labour.
I'm happy about the clear anti-indyref message in that result.

Well there's still an SNP majority smile

SNP hold for mine, although increased vote share for both Labour and Tory. Tories were never going to come close to winning it. I voted Labour and was pleased the support was reflected in the vote share. I voted SNP in 2015 so was happy whether it went SNP or Labour really.

Went from SNP to Tory with a majority of about 120

Justmuddlingalong Fri 09-Jun-17 06:32:58

2 votes in it in Fife. SNP hold even with an 8% loss. Disappointed.

Vicina Fri 09-Jun-17 06:35:54

Mine stayed SNP which is no surprise but with a reduced majority.

The stronger Tory vote is the result of tactical voting and Ruth Davidson's feisty performances I assume. The No voters have got their act together.

Justmuddlingalong Fri 09-Jun-17 06:41:50

LD candidate suggesting they may challenge the result. 4 counts in total, 2 wins for the SNP, 2 for the LD.

insancerre Fri 09-Jun-17 06:44:16

Tory majority
Again
sigh

The stupidity to vote a new party to avoid another referendum is just ridiculous. You just vote NO if you dont want to split. Ffs.

PigletWasPoohsFriend Fri 09-Jun-17 06:47:16

Ruth Davidson was the biggest winner of all last night.

Some of those swings were huge.

Mine went from SNP to LibDem. It had been a LibDem seat historically until the last election. I am shocked that so many people have voted conservative in Scotland.

HaveTeaWillSurvive Fri 09-Jun-17 06:48:24

Lib dem from SNP but interestingly their vote remained pretty constant but the Tories gained 10pc from the snp so that tipped the balance. I'm glad as we voted to send a message of no indeyref2. Chances of Sturgeon taking this message are probably slim though sad

theflickyones Fri 09-Jun-17 06:50:25

SNP to Tory here.

SciFiFan2015 Fri 09-Jun-17 06:51:06

Labour won took the seat from SNP. I'm delighted but shocked!
I voted based on policies (not tactically) I was convinced that we'd stay SNP.

Redglitter Fri 09-Jun-17 06:53:08

Unfortunately ours remained SNP

Whisky2014 Fri 09-Jun-17 06:54:22

OP...You say you voted tactfully but why didn't you vote labour along with the other 10k you mention? What were the votes for labour and tory?

MacarenaFerreiro Fri 09-Jun-17 06:58:19

Jo Swinson won my seat back and I am absolutely delighted for her. She was a strong MP last time and will do a good job again I'm sure.

Not a good night for the SNP. Peak Nat been and gone.

RebootYourEngine Fri 09-Jun-17 06:58:24

Ours moved from snp to tory. The snp candidate had been in that seat for a long time. He is a smug bastard but id rather him than the Tories.

I didnt vote for either of those two.
