An excellent result in Scotland

The real loser in the recent British general election was Nicola Sturgeon and the Scottish National Party.  They were routed.  They lost 21 of their 56 seats at Westminster. The Scottish Conservatives won 12 of those seats.

Nicola Sturgeon is short of stature, married but childless.  She is well to the Left of British politics. She is a former member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.  The Scottish Tories are led by Ruth Davidson, a lesbian.  British conservatives are supportive of homosexuality.  Homosexual experience was traditionally common in British private schools.

It has been much noted that the Northern Irish handed government to the Conservatives, as the English Conservatives fell a little short of winning an overall majority.  But it is equally true that the Scottish Conservatives handed overall control of the UK to the Conservatives by their votes.

Which is a considerable irony.  Nicola Sturgeon is a hateful little bizzem, fanatically driven by her loathing for the English -- a common ailment in Scotland. But it was her poor campaign that delivered those 12 new Scottish seats to the Tories.  She campaigned on a second independence referendum for Scotland whereas economic issues were the big drivers among the Scottish voters.

So her obsessive hatred of the English delivered up government to the hated English Conservatives.  Most just.  She will be widely reviled in Scotland as the woman who delivered government to the Conservatives.
