Heckuva job, Cameron.

...I was about to make a joke that the London PTB would blame Scotland and the SNP for the results. So much for jokes.

Turnout in Scotland has been considerably lower than expected. The SNP, the dominant party which ran huge campaigns for the independence referendum, UK election and Scottish elections, has run a lacklustre campaign with minimal ground activity.

Sturgeon had more to say about criticising the remain camp than making the positive case for Europe and she was nowhere to be seen until the dying days of the campaign.

Remain, of course, won every Council in Scotland and therefore Scotland. It did not win in England, probably due to those lacklustre campaigns by the Tories and Labour.
