After my month long moratorium on covering politics, i'm apparently going on such a binge that i'm covering British politics now
British voters punished the Liberal Democrats for their role in a deficit-cutting government on Friday, rejecting the party's efforts to reform the electoral system and deserting it in local elections.
The Scottish National Party (SNP) scored a bumper haul, winning an outright majority in Scotland's assembly -- which has limited powers devolved from London -- and opening the door for a referendum on secession from the rest of Britain.
It's been the Irish who fought for their independence for so long while the Scotts sat around like loyal wankers, so this is an interesting twist.
