Unfortunately there will always be a very small section of the population that will actively solicit rumours and conspiracies (no matter how spurious the source) in order to affirm their own confirmation bias.

A lot of the reason for the swing to the SNP wasn't nationalism per-se as much as the Scots saying "you guys are rubbish" to both Labour and the SDP - something that they had already said to the Conservatives years ago.
Yes you are very right,the tories have been dead in Scotland for a long time,they were found out long ago and now it seems the same has happened to Labour or also know as the diet tories .
Jim Murphy the scottish Labour leader ,lead a diastrous campaign and he lost his seat also ,good riddance and well done SNP .
