More Sour Grapes.

From Drumlanrig again, "New official data on last year's Holyrood election fiasco has once again drawn attention to Cunninghame North, where the SNP's Kenny Gibson beat Labour's Allan Wilson last year by just 48 votes. The new data shows that 309 voters who backed Labour on the second vote spoiled their ballot paper on the constituency ballot, compared with just 207 voters who backed the Nats. Labour sources point out that, had the votes been properly recorded, Wilson would almost certainly have won, and the SNP's one-seat victory over Labour would have been reversed."

Mr Smith wishes Mr Wilson (aka the "Labour source") would give up banging on about this. Why doesn't he go to court if he is so sure of success in overturning the result?
