This for any democrat is not right even though none can argue that they were won fairly under the current voting system
Of course The Tories with 36.9% one Scottish MP have an overall majority there are democratically elected under the First Past the Post system.
So Scotland having to many MPs with 50% of the vote Bad . Tory Majority wirth 36.9% Good .
Got that . I just wish people would know their place and realise that that the UK voting system is designed to make sure that smaller Parties are prevented from entering the UK Parliament in any numbers and when they do the establishment have every right to call foul.
and with the Proportional system for Scottish Elections designed to prevent it the SNP heading for another majority in the Scottish Parliament looking likely to lead to another SNP majority the Establishment can cry foul again and we get the sort of
Imagine a country where the government so mistrusted parents that every child was assigned a state guardian — not a member of their family — to act as a direct link between the child and officials. Imagine that such a scheme was compulsory, no matter how strongly parents objected.

Professor Adam Tomkins is a British legal scholar and John Millar Professor of Public Law at the School of Law of the University of Glasgow. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2014.
In August 2015, Tomkins announced his intention to stand as a conservative member of the Scottish parliament in the 2016 elections. In a blog explaining his decision, he was highly critical of the SNP's actions in government at Holyrood and praised many (Westminster) conservative policies including Ian Duncan Smith's "outstanding" benefit reforms.
Yes the man who calls the SNP government in Holyrood thinks it perfectly alright to attack the most vunrable members of Soceity.
I don't know whether Mr Tomkins is stll a member of Republic organisation advocating the replacement of the monarchy with a democratically elected head of state.
I do know that he also stood on a platform advocating an independent Scottish Republic in 2004.
There was an alternative event to the State opening of the Scottish Parliament just over a mile away atop Edinburgh’s Calton Hill. The Scottish Socialist Party drew up a declaration of independence calling for “an independent Scottish republic built on the principles of liberty, equality, diversity and solidarity.”
Quite a journey from Scottish Republican to Conservative Unionist and we are supposed to take this man seriously.
