Well you know how we are the United Kingdom? So have you heard of the Scottish National Party? Well, i've never liked them - i've always voted Labour (i.e our present government) but also, as you may know we've had a Scot parliament since 1999 and so far the SNP was quite behind Labour in votes. We had our Scot election and it had appeared from opinion polls in the past few months that the SNP could win and i was watching the results lastnight (They took ages finding out all the results due to new voting forms&electronic counting) but i only found out a few of them. At 6 tonight they finally found out the whole result, and the SNP won by 1 seat and i'm just wondering now how this will work - Labour could form a co-alition with another party who aren't so bad. I've always strongly disliked the leader of SNP!!! I'm so worried about Scotland going independant&i really don't want it it appears that Scotland is now divided down the middle about what we want now

Did you know about our parliament?


We're just hoping it could just be a protest vote against Tony Blair and the way the war in Iraq happened - i mean i know some countries have went independant ok but i want to stay part of Britain personally

I don't know too much about how it works. On Sunday nights they air parliament sessions on the telly . It's so much different from here in the States. When ever I watch it, it seems that everyone is yelling at each other.

it sounds funny put like that! Well i think it sounds as though you're prob talking about Westminster and not the Scot parliament. But yes, that's what our parliament's like! Prime minister's questions is always very rowdy and that's the way it is, but i'm always thinking well it is quite entertaining for me to watch at times but i don't ever quite get how they can do that or are allowed to we do have what's called a speaker and is technically meant to keep order!!!! The speaker we have down in London is actually the former MP for my area and we voted him to be speaker my mum has spoken to him before and he has a reputation as being a good guy


Oh btw tiny - the parliament building and Big Ben in London - simply stunning!!!! I saw them the last 3 times i've been there and i'm in awe of it absolutely gorgeous building!!

It comes on a political station, that airs politics here in the states. The Parliament sessions are only on for 30 minutes on Sunday night.
