UK General Election Live Blog 2015: 0250

Devastation as a 20 year old student (SNP) beats former Blair/Brown era Minister and Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander.

Dundee West, Glenrothes, Falkirk, Ochil and Perthshire and Dunbartonshire West also swing heavily from Labour to SNP.  Already SNP more than doubled seats from 6 to 13, but numbers look like Labour almost entirely wiped out in Scotland.

The nationalist genie set free by Scottish devolution by the Blair Government has grown into a beast that has swallowed up its founders.  However, if the figures remain bleak for Labour, the SNP will be a loud opposition.

No Conservative losses at all so far.
One Liberal Democrat loss (Scotland)
Big story is still Labour losing heavily in Scotland...
