The buck stops at Dunfermline

The people of Scotland showed that real issues are more important than tabloid pap. Right when most analysts were expecting the Lib-Dems to collapse under the ongoing press trouncing and their most turbulent period ever, they tallied their 63rd MP as they snatched the Dunfermline and West Fife by-election from Labour. Hope exists! Enough people in Scotland proved that they're not bothered if Simon Hughes is gay, Mark Oaten betrayed his wife, or Charles Kennedy was a bit of an alky. Questions of economic fairness, for instance, maybe a touch more relevant which explains why the Lib-Dems managed not to fall apart and Labour's smokescreen strategy failed miserably. What else do you call losing over 11,000 votes in 9 months? As for Cameron... did anyone bother?
