"SNP stuns Labour in Glasgow East"

Having stunned them, could it please use live ammo for the mercy shot?

"Mercy shot"? Heaven help me. I read it first time as "money shot". But on the other hand...... :-)

I believe that the usual measure is to cut the throat after stunning.

Serf, are you perhaps confusing traditional English and halal/kosher slaughter methods?

The most stunning remark of the evening was that of Annabel Goldie (the Scottish Tory leader) who is reported (in your quoted piece) to have said apropos of the Conservatives' 1,639 votes that "throughout the UK it is the Conservatives who are setting the political agenda". What is this woman on?

halal / kosher involves the cutting of the throat only, all other slaughter (except for poultry) is carried out by stunning the animals brain, which renders it unconscious, followed by cutting of the throat, that achieves death.

I should know, I've done it. Sadly, not on a serving BBC / Nu Labour alliance animal.

Serf, HH, I stand corrected.

I'm astonished that such a heavily Roman Catholic Glasgow seat would vote against Labour. It seems the least I can do is lower the tone; perhaps it's not a seat where you gain any advantage from being lead by a Son of the Manse.
