Happy birthday Scottish National Party!

The Scottish National Party (Pàrtaidh Nàiseanta na h-Alba), the current party of Goverment in Scotland, was founded today on April 7th 1934.

The party was formed from a merger of several parties, such as the National Party of Scotland (formed in 1928), and the Scottish Party, a splinter group of the Cathcart Conservative Association.
