Britain’s Election: All Eyes on Scotland in Knife-Edge Vote

by on May 7, 2015

All eyes will be on Scotland on Thursday as the Scottish National Party (SNP) looks set for a landslide victory north of the border in Britain’s general election, a result that could hand it the role of kingmaker.

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said the vote could be a “watershed” where Scots reject Labour, the party that has represented them for generations, fundamentally altering the balance of power in British politics.

“The weather may be a wee bit dreich (miserable) in Edinburgh this morning but the outlook for Scotland is sunny – very sunny,” she told a final campaign event on Wednesday surrounded by cheering supporters.
