The 2015 General Election

The General Election in Scotland in May 2015 was completed only 6 short months after the 2014 referendum.

The election provided a unique opportunity for Scots to confirm the results of the 2014 referendum and there appeared to be no definitive reason why this should not be the case.

But the result stunned Westminster who even when faced with the reality that the fiddled postal vote in the 2014 referendum had been tumbled by Scots went into denial mode big time.

The final result was:

Total votes cast: 2,911,391

Total votes for SNP: 1,424,424

Equates to: 50.5% in favour of “Yes”
