The Un-elected.

So which of our current illustrious Members of the Scottish Parliament have no right to be there?

"THE expert appointed to investigate last year's Scottish Parliament election fiasco has said some MSPs may have no right to sit at Holyrood. Elections watchdog Ron Gould revealed he is "not comfortable" with the view that all 129 MSPs elected last year actually received more votes than their opponents. He blames the farce in which more than 140,000 ballots were spoiled."

So it looks as though we have the best democracy that money didn't even need to buy and we criticise unelected regimes the world over. How long until someone starts analysing the Scottish version of the "hanging chads" to see which MSPs didn't actually get elected?
