further remarks about the implications of this election. both to the country and for the party and my position in the liberal democrats when i marie marks to my colleagues later this morning. the immediate triumph of the night went to nicholas' scottish national lists a clone sweep of scotland at the expense of labor. a 20-year-old candidate unseating the national campaign manager. it's been one of the most crucial votes for decades and the most closely fault. it could decide the future of britain, in europe. the conservatives have considered a in-out on remembership terms and there's more voting ahead and there may have to be negotiations about

how to form a stable union. some were quick to celebrate the success and others weren't so sure. the anti-immigration party is expected to get two seats but he himself may fail to get elected, prompting a leadership contest. it's been a night of surprises and shocks, not least the possibility of demands for another referendum on scottish independent deps. lawrence lee is outside the house of parliament, and so, what happened this? this is not the scenario were telling us that we would be facing this morning. no, in the for a single second and, you know, in the normal run of things, the way politics has worked. if the result of the election laws would win by a majority of
4:06 am
one, you would think it was unconvincing result. but this hasn't been like any sort of normal collection and all opinion for weeks every single opinion poll said that neither the conservatives nor the labor party would not get a majority and britain is heading into the then known. it could not possibly have been more wrong. it makes you wonder what was wrong with all those opinion polls. and what was it that changed people's minds and convince he them that the conservative message was better. was it, they were the only party that could stop the scottish national lists or was it the much more simple message that they were drumming into people's head. day off-day through this entire campaign that they are the only people, who can look after the
4:07 am
economy. a little earlier, i spoke to the foreign secretary, and he suggested it was that, that swayed the views. i think the clear message was if you want us to carry on with the economic plan and get the best sit down and copy creating more jobs, and more skills, if you want to see briton's growth in the forefront of the developed countries you have to stick with the conservatives. but it didn't shift pence. a lot of people have taken the approach of voting for what they know. they're not talking about what people are promising for the future, but what when have done. they're saying, you know, think they're doing the right thing, they're on the right track. so, a triumph for the conservative party and david cameron, and his chancellor,
4:08 am
will say they have a clear mandate to carry on. there a triumph for them and the scottish national party and the number of votes that they got, and utterly disastrous for liberal party and they will have to start over. and the biggest losers have been the labor party of working people how could they have lost so heavily the chancellor lost his seat, and the leader will have to go. there's a list of people, it doesn't look like there's any new thinking from any of those candidates that could break away from any of the ideas that they came up with, in the last decade that will orr a proper and very distinct alternative. yes. thanks so much.
4:09 am
as you mentioned the labor party has been defeated by the scottish national party and support, has been gaining momentum since the referendum, and joinses us now says that scott tish national lists were expected to do well. this is where they could count on the seats. for decade after decade, and the conservatives, left with one seat, and the liberals, left with one seat, try and make sense of all of this. and let's talk to my guest.
4:10 am
daniel. he gave his speech a few hours ago he spoke about an up surge of nationallism, in scotland as the reason for this terrible night for labor. is this an up surge? well, it is, a up surge in voting for the nationalist party, and but what's been happening in scotland, the nationals have been gaining credibility and ground and, they have their own parliament, and they have been in government since 2007. and scottish voters have come to see them as a competent party and government. that doesn't necessarily mean that they are all in favor of especially dependence. but they are prepared to len their vet to them and make scott land's voice heard. lay for established
4:11 am
themselves on the left, they are the party of social justice and they were losers. we got good surveys that suggest that is the perception. and, it is that labor have desserted that background, the proddy years where the party in london pursued a more market based approach. and also, not helping labor with last year's referendum here. the labor party joined forces with the conservatives against an independence vote and, that didn't help them in the eyes of the scottish voters. that's the bigger issue. is there a real risk for david cameron, even in this morning of try university that he will be the last prime minister of u.k.
4:12 am
there is a risk. i think they have played a very dangerous game, in the long-term. in the short term it may have worked out of them. they played on the fear. but it looks as though, that's been successful, but what it may do is spoke up scottish nationallism and english and he could slope walk into a situation, where it is pulled apart. so lots to watch here, in scottish and british politics. a very interesting time and astonishing results. thank you. well still ahead. fears, syria's war could spill over into lebanon.
