(Please see UPDATE at end)
Apparently the marked electoral register for last November's Glenrothes by-election, on which officials in polling stations score out voters as they register to vote, has gone missing, according to a Courier exclusive report. The result confounded expectations at the time amongst all political parties, including Labour, who all expected a very close result and possibly a narrow SNP victory.
My own allusion to the result and my explanation for it were based on an implicit assumption of the integrity of the vote. Whilst there is absolutely no evidence that the result was anything but sound, the inability to trace such an important legal document as the marked election register must inevitably cast suspicion on what happened back in November.

UPDATE: (Tuesday 3FEB09 18.06 GMT) I've just noticed in my visitor statistics that this post was viewed this afternoon from the Electoral Commission server - I hope that this body will take a good look at the Glenrothes result and issue an HONEST appraisal quickly. We do not require a whitewash! And will not believe it if it is clear that this is what it is.
