Media from around the planet are gathering in this hangar type building. Some places are reserved and the man from Slugger almost nicked a seat ‘belonging’ to the Chinese National News Agency.

However I think I got away with it.

I have been around polling stations in Glasgow today and  the most accurate impression I can give is that it is too cloase to call.
