While there is been a surfeit of comment, analysis and drivel, the one thing that is missing is any comment about what really lost the Tories a majority - Scotland.
You know that bit of land that if you forget to turn off the M6 onto the M55 for Blackpool, eventually becomes visible through the rain. The land where some parts of it largest town have worse statistics than Zimbabwe. Where snouts in the trough "socialist" crooks run councils with expertise that the Cosa Nostra is jealous of. That place where the Labour Party has its lair, where evil thugs train as the Tartan Taliban to destroy any prosperity in England. Where Macqueda spin against anyone (including their own side) who does not fit the mould. Even those nominally appearing to be English have names like Campbell and McBride.
Yet this was once Eden with 55% voting Tory, the land of the entrepreneur, the land of the fiscally smart who travelled the world setting up banks and finance houses, the land of the engineers who made Victorian Britain a world leader. A land where there were enough Tory MPs to assist John Major in defeating Neil Kinnock in 1992.
So what went wrong? Ah will tell ye this. The way the party behaved after 1992 lost them support. They let the gullible Scots be convinced that Mrs Thatcher was to blame for everything right down to changing Marathon bars into Snickers.
Then when we should have been rebuilding what happens? Six days after the 1997 Acting Chairman Goldie dismissed all the policy groups with a curt letter so hacking off many important Tories in the CBI, IOD etc. Then McLetchie and Goldie constructed a party dependent on Irvine Laidlaw's money and not on constituencies. Also it is on record that one constituency chairman (name known) was told not to bother with policy as it wasn't wanted.
A small clique took over (I was on the periphery of it) and the party in the country disappeared. There are very few constituency associations. Scotland should be a Tory country with a touch of Liberal. The heavy industry has gone, blamed on Thatcher but in reality dragged down by the workshy benefit scrounging West of Scotland. It is a country where well schooled, professionals vote Labour in Edinburgh. Where Labour politicians like Darling and Blair are from Tory families.
Of course there are the ghettos of Fife and Lanarkshire electing without thought expenses greedy MPs like Brown. There are the worse than deprived areas like Glasgow East where David Marshall made more money than all of his constituents and resigned early or next door where the Sleazy Speaker, the Easterhouse Egit (not Gorbals Mick which is not in his constituency) kept his constituents poor.
But this should be a country with 36% or more Tory. That would be 20 MPs.
Instead Labour has Ali Brown and the 40 thieves. The 11 Liberals are mainly from areas which have a Liberal tradition (except for Edinburgh West which has EH4, the richest postcode). The Nats have their following but they are seen as lefties (significantly they have brighter Tories than the Scottish Tories).
If Scotland had sent 20 Tories, 11 Liberals, 12 SNP and 16 Labour how different things would have been.
So why is no one talking about it? 16% instead of 40% and a swing to Labour.
Is it not time to get rid of Goldie and her ineffective mob and rebuild with Tories who are dynamic, understand policy and build up local bases?
Or do we rebuild Hadrian's Wall and give the SNP total independence (it might be easier)?
But why is there no comment or analysis?
I think this is a legitimate question to ask. Scottish Tories have consistently underperformed, unlike their Welsh counterparts. This issue needs to be dealt with, and dealt with fast.
