Figures are directly from the BBC - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election/2015/results

I never said that the Scots were to blame, just that the Labour vote actually increased over the previous election. If you look at those figures, a 3.1% increase in SNP votes gained them 50 seats. It wouldn't take that much for them to swing back next time. Again, I'm not saying they will, but the SNP are effectively powerless to stop Tory actions in Scotland - no matter how unpopular.
