He's back!

Alex Salmond has won Gordon, coming from third place.

The rest of the night will determine whether he returns, leading the largest party.

Mr Salmond condemned the confusion which has resulted in thousands of votes being rejected.

Loved his well-justified dig at the absolutely disgraceful scaremongering and almost 80s-esque tabloid vote-influencing.

I'm confused with all the confusion about the ballots. Whats so hard about 'Put one X in this section, One X in the next section and use numbers to indicate your preference on the other papaer'. I heared an official explain the system to an elderly couple in a polling station today. It was very clear what you needed to do. Where is the confusion?
