  2. Final results for Scotland, much simpler than England, Wales or Northern Ireland, since no party gained or lost a single seat, and with four major parties to choose from, none of the other parties won as much as 20,000 votes, 1% of the total or a seat in Parliament.


    59 results declared for 59 Scottish seats
    2,466,000 votes cast (63.8% turnout, +3%)

    Absolute votes in thousands

    41 1036 (42.0%) +2.5% Labour
    11 _466 (18.9%) –3.7% Liberal Democratic
    _6 _492 (19.9%) +2.3% Scottish National Party
    _1 _413 (16.7%) +0.9% Conservative

    UKIP and Green about 17,000 each (0.7%);
    BNP about 9,000 (0.4%)

    (Of course, this partly reflects the number of constituencies each contested; the four major parties contested all or nearly all 59 seats.)

    Average swing from SNP to Labour since 2005: +0.1%
