Douglas Alexander, Labour's campaign manager, lost his Paisley South seat to a 20-year-old student.
Mhairi Black, the new SNP MP, is 20 years and 238 days old and becomes the youngest MP since the great Reform Act - having captured the Labour seat with an extraordinary swing of 26.9 per cent.
Miss Black, a politics student who sits her final exams at Glasgow University after the election, becomes the youngest MP since 13-year-old Christopher Monck in 1667.
A devoted Partick Thistle supporter, Miss Black made the mistake after becoming a candidate of failing to delete some of her more colourful tweets, including one in which she wrote: “I’ve only just realised - I really f***** hate Celtic” and “Celtic, yer a joke!#scum"
On another occasion she posted a boozy confession, saying: “Woke up beside half a can of Tennents and a full pizza and more money than I came out with. I call that a success!”I suggest that when her final exams come up, she should just turn in her election results.
