It's the afternoon after the late night before and Lesley and I try to make sense of the results of the General Election.

Lesley,unashamedly, starts by looking at the tremendous showing by the SNP, and, in so doing,gives me the telling off I deserve.

The rest of the podcast is taken up with attempting to explain just what happened and examining the impact of the election on all of the main parties across the UK.

Naturally we also focus on what it all means for the  Scottish independence campaign.

I'll let you judge how successful we are, given our late, late night, and very early morning.
