Scotland has twice as many giant pandas as Conservative MPs.


26?

As of the 2017 general election there is 13 Scottish Conservative MPs.

13x2=26

Where did you get 31 from?

I assume at some point there was only one Conservative MPs. This might also have happened in an alternate universe, I have about the same grasp of Scottish politics as a lemon has of particle physics.

You're right, CD. From 2001 to 2017 there was just the one.
