Two typical Scottish voters, slighted by the system.

Today the new and innovative 'vote online' concept for the Scottish Election has had politicians in a worry.

A computer meltdown happened this morning, forcing those counting the votes to abandon the operation. Critics are guessing it will delay the system by about ten hours. But sceptics are saying that they will not see the voting results for another 20 years, plunging Scotland into a civil war, and putting everyone in chaos just at the perfect time for the aliens to land an see no resistance.

The meeting about what to do then plunged into turmoil and started throwing microphones at each other.

One hundred police men came in to stop the angry mob, but ended up joining in with the fight. The riot police then came and crashed their van into the side of parliament, and the roof was creaking, so it was evacuation time. The politicians then stopped arguing and resolved their problems without violence.

Then the results came: no-one won.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
