On Election Reporting Scotland tonight:

:00:11.:00:14.

Last-minute campaigning has been taking place

:00:15.:00:15.

across Scotland, with each of the party leaders making

:00:16.:00:17.

And we take a look behind the scenes at BBC

:00:18.:00:21.

This time tomorrow the polls will have closed

:00:22.:00:46.

Tonight, a last-minute push for votes has been taking place.

:00:47.:00:50.

All of Scotland's political leaders have been making final speeches

:00:51.:00:54.

Here's our political correspondent Glenn Campbell.

:00:55.:01:04.

On live television in the closing stages of this surprise

:01:05.:01:06.

election, a surprise revelation from the First Minister about a telephone

:01:07.:01:10.

conversation she had with the Labour leader

:01:11.:01:13.

When you told me then you thought that Brexit meant Labour should stop

:01:14.:01:20.

opposing a referendum, you've changed your mind but why should

:01:21.:01:23.

APPLAUSE The staunchly Unionist Conservative

:01:24.:01:29.

leader could hardly believe her ears.

:01:30.:01:32.

Did you just tell people you had a private conversation when she

:01:33.:01:35.

said she would drop Labour's opposition to independence?

:01:36.:01:40.

She said she thought Brexit changed everything and she didn't think

:01:41.:01:43.

Labour could any longer go on opposing a second

:01:44.:01:45.

An account Kezia Dugdale doesn't accept.

:01:46.:01:51.

The idea I would do anything other than protect the UK

:01:52.:01:54.

The trouble with that denial is that it's only a

:01:55.:02:01.

year or so since Kezia Dugdale was quoted saying that it wasn't

:02:02.:02:04.

inconceivable should back independence in the event of Brexit.

:02:05.:02:09.

While she certainly spent this election campaign arguing against a

:02:10.:02:12.

second independence referendum, her UK leader Jeremy Corbyn doesn't

:02:13.:02:17.

appear to have ruled out giving Holyrood the power to hold one.

:02:18.:02:24.

In Glasgow this morning, he was no more

:02:25.:02:26.

The priority is the election of a Labour government that

:02:27.:02:30.

I didn't see the urgency or the need for an independence referendum.

:02:31.:02:37.

In Edinburgh, Kezia Dugdale served up a

:02:38.:02:40.

What she's asserting is a categorical lie and one which

:02:41.:02:45.

I've always opposed independence and a second

:02:46.:02:49.

The Tories also turned on the First Minister.

:02:50.:02:54.

I thought many things about the First

:02:55.:02:56.

Minister but I never thought she was a clype..

:02:57.:03:04.

Don't have a private chat with this First Minister because if

:03:05.:03:07.

it suits her purposes, everyone will get to hear about it.

:03:08.:03:09.

This First Minister will say anything to

:03:10.:03:11.

deflect from the SNP's appalling record in office.

:03:12.:03:14.

I stand by 100% what I said last night.

:03:15.:03:18.

In fact, if anybody reads what Labour and Kezia

:03:19.:03:21.

Dugdale were saying in public around that time,

:03:22.:03:24.

they will see the ring of

:03:25.:03:26.

The Liberal Democrats decided to keep out of what some are calling

:03:27.:03:31.

But they've got problems of their own.

:03:32.:03:37.

Police have reported their campaign directed to

:03:38.:03:39.

prosecutors over the spending in his Holyrood election campaign last

:03:40.:03:43.

year, prompting SNP calls for him to be suspended by the Lib Dems.

:03:44.:03:48.

We are confident in our processes that

:03:49.:03:52.

every item of expenditure has been accounted for.

:03:53.:03:56.

The police haven't interviewed Alex Cole Hamilton, this

:03:57.:04:00.

Therefore it is in the hands of the police and the Prix curator to

:04:01.:04:07.

As Scotland prepares to go to the polls, this UK general

:04:08.:04:17.

election campaign just got more interesting.

:04:18.:04:19.

Well, for one last time, I'm joined by our panel of pundits.

:04:20.:04:21.

Tonight here in Glasgow we have Stephen Paton,

:04:22.:04:23.

who's online content editor for the National, and the journalist

:04:24.:04:26.

And in Edinburgh we've got Jenni Davidson from Holyrood magazine.

:04:27.:04:39.

how has the campaign is being? Justice on top. Think no one had

:04:40.:04:48.

expected it. When it was first announced, everyone is expecting a

:04:49.:04:50.

standard campaign from the Conservatives who were going to walk

:04:51.:04:53.

into a larger majority and out of Norway has come a tightening, the

:04:54.:04:59.

Labour Party swinging in any way people were not expecting. It was

:05:00.:05:04.

meant to be a formal, getting in more Conservative MPs, but could act

:05:05.:05:08.

have large ramifications and implications in the UK for several

:05:09.:05:12.

years to come. And the speed with which they have had to pull things

:05:13.:05:16.

together, the political parties, has been a challenge. How must you think

:05:17.:05:23.

that has divided? I slightly disagree, I think this was all set

:05:24.:05:26.

to be an exiting campaign, because each of the parties. Back we are

:05:27.:05:32.

back to the 2-party system, so it seems. I may be proved wrong

:05:33.:05:38.

tomorrow. In the UK anyway. One of the editing things about the

:05:39.:05:42.

election is that it has been about parking on other people's lawns. The

:05:43.:05:49.

Tories have been trying to gain more Conservative MPs, but they been

:05:50.:05:52.

trying to do it with a manifesto which buys more interesting than

:05:53.:05:57.

many had anticipated. I think that what they have not done is prepare

:05:58.:06:03.

the ground very well for that, but it has made for a more interesting

:06:04.:06:07.

election because there has been a very clear division between the two

:06:08.:06:11.

main parties in England. What were the issues for you that have stood

:06:12.:06:17.

out? We will talk about moment in a minute, but issues. Independence in

:06:18.:06:22.

Scotland has been the big one. The Julian is party 's have been talking

:06:23.:06:28.

about that, and they have set out their stalls based on opposition

:06:29.:06:34.

independence. They've been putting forward opposition to the SNP on

:06:35.:06:38.

that basis and it is interesting that they are uniting against the

:06:39.:06:46.

SNP on that. Despite their different policy positions in other areas.

:06:47.:06:51.

Across the UK, the dementia tax has been a big one, even though it

:06:52.:06:55.

doesn't as they apply in Scotland, but the ramifications of that and

:06:56.:07:01.

the impact on the way that has made Conservatives look and made Theresa

:07:02.:07:06.

May look the terms of undermining her strong, stable message. That has

:07:07.:07:13.

still affected the campaign in Scotland. The rate clause, you saw

:07:14.:07:18.

that in the debate last night, the other parties all gang up on Ruth

:07:19.:07:23.

Davidson about how she could support the two child tax credit policy and

:07:24.:07:27.

the rate clause, so those for me would be the defining issues. The

:07:28.:07:33.

politicians in a way cannot control the issues, it is not always what

:07:34.:07:37.

they want to talk about. How much do you think Brexit maybe has not

:07:38.:07:40.

featured as much as Theresa May would have liked it? That was a

:07:41.:07:46.

strategy of hers, a strong and stable leader. That is why a thing

:07:47.:07:50.

she wanted to focus on Brexit. One reason they might have moved away

:07:51.:07:54.

from it is the fact that there was a more interesting manifesto, but not

:07:55.:07:59.

in the way that they wanted. Dementia tax, rate clause, getting

:08:00.:08:05.

people's attention. That gave an excellent platform for Jeremy Corbyn

:08:06.:08:09.

to step in with his policies to do with putting more money back into

:08:10.:08:13.

services and addressing it that way. I can understand why the message

:08:14.:08:19.

moved on from Brexit, and got into more social issues. What were the

:08:20.:08:26.

defining moments for you? Apart from the terror attacks which were

:08:27.:08:29.

terrible, but in political terms the defining moments have been the

:08:30.:08:35.

absences. Exit is enormous. The idea that Jeremy Corbyn is doing the

:08:36.:08:39.

country a favour by simply ignoring it is certainly worrying. So it has

:08:40.:08:46.

been the absence of serious debate about Brexit that has defined this

:08:47.:08:51.

campaign for me, every day we been waiting for some really serious

:08:52.:08:56.

debates about Brexit and the Conservatives have supplied no

:08:57.:08:58.

detail and the Labour Party has sadly ignored it. Nicola Sturgeon up

:08:59.:09:05.

here just has one note about Brexit and that is that Scotland must have

:09:06.:09:08.

a seat at the table and what she would like to see out of Brexit. But

:09:09.:09:15.

we have had no real debate and nothing very substantial about what

:09:16.:09:19.

should have been the defining issue of this election, because if we

:09:20.:09:22.

don't get Brexit right, the other parties can promise whatever they

:09:23.:09:28.

like, but they will won't be the wherewithal or organisation. How

:09:29.:09:32.

will we get out of the UN move on? The one thing the Liberal Democrats

:09:33.:09:36.

have offered is a vote on the terms of Brexit. Do you think that that

:09:37.:09:40.

has broken through as much as they might have hoped? No, I don't think

:09:41.:09:46.

so. I doubt that that is really carrying weight. No one expects them

:09:47.:09:52.

to be the main ruling party, so whatever they say, everyone knows

:09:53.:09:54.

that is not axing what is going to happen. I think people are also

:09:55.:10:01.

quite defined now in where they want things to go, they want full hard

:10:02.:10:09.

Brexit, the UK to leave and get on with it, or whether they want a soft

:10:10.:10:16.

Brexit, they won the single market. Access to single market or

:10:17.:10:21.

membership. Access to the customs union. Asking that again, to

:10:22.:10:27.

everyone it seems like me running a debate that has that he happened,

:10:28.:10:33.

and I think it is also just so far away that people cannot even project

:10:34.:10:36.

what the final deal is to think about, or what would we want, what

:10:37.:10:44.

would I vote in that sense, there has been talk about leaving with no

:10:45.:10:50.

deal, so what would that mean? Stay by bus, all, we are going to come

:10:51.:10:54.

back to put you in a moment. More from the campaign trail in a moment,

:10:55.:10:56.

but first some other news. To the rest of the days news,

:10:57.:11:00.

and the headteacher of a school where a pupil died after a wall fell

:11:01.:11:03.

on her has told an inquiry there had been a proposal to remove it

:11:04.:11:07.

before the accident. Stephen Kelly said the work didn't

:11:08.:11:09.

go ahead because of a lack of funds. 12-year-old Keane

:11:10.:11:13.

Wallis Bennett died Stephen Kelly told the fatal

:11:14.:11:14.

accident inquiry the proposal to remove the modesty of war

:11:15.:11:20.

in the girls changing room at the school was part

:11:21.:11:24.

of a refurbishment programme. He said the work was nothing to do

:11:25.:11:28.

with the safety of the wall, he had no concerned about it

:11:29.:11:31.

and no one had come to him He told the inquiry the work had not

:11:32.:11:34.

gone ahead because it -- were not available.

:11:35.:11:40.

and the funds were available. Keane Wallis-Bennett

:11:41.:11:46.

died in April 2014 The inquiry heard evidence that

:11:47.:11:48.

pupils at the school had raised concerned about the wall which

:11:49.:11:53.

screened off the changing room. They have reported it

:11:54.:11:58.

moving or wobbling. Merhi Henderson was one

:11:59.:12:01.

of several teachers questioned, she was

:12:02.:12:05.

working at the school She and the other teachers insisted

:12:06.:12:09.

pupils had never reported concerned about the safety of

:12:10.:12:14.

the wall and they all said that if they had

:12:15.:12:16.

they would have removed pupils from

:12:17.:12:18.

the area and reported it so safety checks could be carried out and any

:12:19.:12:23.

necessary work undertaken. A 42-year-old man has died

:12:24.:12:27.

after a tree hit his car in high It happened last night

on the A85 east of Gilmerton. Meanwhile people were forced

:12:39.:12:44.

to leave their homes in Portsoy in Aberdeenshire this morning

:12:45.:12:46.

because of flooding. Fire crews led some elderly

:12:47.:12:48.

residents to safety from sheltered accommodation in the town after two

:12:49.:12:51.

rivers burst their banks. Police Scotland say they've received

:12:52.:12:56.

intelligence about England fans preparing to come to Glasgow

officers can require the person to remove these items,

:13:48.:13:53.

they can seize these items and ultimately arrest the person

:13:54.:13:56.

if they refuse to do so. Railway stations where

:13:57.:14:01.

fans are arriving in Glasgow will see extra

:14:02.:14:07.

officers on duty. British Transport Police is putting

but there is no alcohol That is an operator's decision

:14:13.:14:13.

and if they decide not to invoke alcohol bans,

albeit we are putting extra officers on the trains and should be

on the match on Saturday at Hampden Park, police have also

outlined additional security measures they are digging

around the general election tomorrow and

the Robbie Williams concert at Murrayfield where 50,000 fans

are expected. Armed police will be present

:14:51.:14:53.

and they will be carrying weapons of overtly

in what police say it is a bid to reassure

A minute's silence has been held in Edinburgh in memory of a cyclist

:15:04.:15:12.

who died last week after her bike wheels were apparently

:15:13.:15:15.

Friends and safety campaigners gathered in the city's West End,

:15:16.:15:19.

at the junction where medical student Zhi Min Soh was killed.

:15:20.:15:24.

They're calling on the City Council to make the roads safer

:15:25.:15:27.

for cyclists, especially around the tram lines.

:15:28.:15:30.

The council says it will carry out a road safety

:15:31.:15:33.

Sport, and Andy Murray has reached the semi finals of the French Open.

:15:34.:15:38.

The world number one beat the number eight seed Kei Nishikori

:15:39.:15:41.

The Scot will next meet Stan Wawrinka on Friday

:15:42.:15:46.

Elsewhere at Roland Garros, defending champion Novak Djokovic

:15:47.:15:51.

went out of the competition in straight sets.

:15:52.:15:56.

Thousands of people have gathered for a memorial service

:15:57.:15:58.

The Edinburgh-born comic, best known as one half

:15:59.:16:03.

of The Two Ronnies, died last year at the age of 85.

:16:04.:16:07.

Stars including Joanna Lumley, Rob Brydon and Jimmy Tarbuck

:16:08.:16:10.

were among those who delivered readings and tributes.

:16:11.:16:21.

Ron was a poet of comedy. And when a poet dies he leaves us with the

:16:22.:16:31.

laughter. And the sales will move in. But not in this case, because

:16:32.:16:37.

they don't have class, which Corbett had in abundance. He was five foot

:16:38.:16:40.

two in stature and ten foot in comedic talent.

:16:41.:16:41.

That's all from me, now back to Laura.

:16:42.:16:43.

So, in just a few hours, polling will open and many people

:16:44.:16:46.

will just pop down to the local school or library over the course

:16:47.:16:49.

But spare a thought for those who don't have the option

:16:50.:16:55.

Many of Scotland's more remote communities and islands are now

:16:56.:16:59.

often reliant on the postal service to have their say.

:17:00.:17:02.

But that is not the case on the island of Eigg,

:17:03.:17:05.

She went to visit the people using one of Britain's most

:17:06.:17:09.

remote polling stations, finding out how engaged they are

:17:10.:17:11.

I'm on an island where they cherish their right to vote.

:17:12.:17:22.

Around 100 people live on Eigg and on this small isle,

:17:23.:17:24.

The turnout here has, it is rumoured, on some previous

:17:25.:17:31.

Postal voting can prove convenient for many,

:17:32.:17:39.

and across the country it's on the rise.

:17:40.:17:42.

But the pace of life is different here.

:17:43.:17:44.

The fact that you are putting your cross on and you are putting it

:17:45.:17:50.

in the box, you are doing your bit, you're doing your thing.

:17:51.:17:53.

And you feel that you have contributed.

:17:54.:17:55.

And nobody can take that away from you.

:17:56.:17:57.

Some of Scotland's remote island communities have no choice

:17:58.:18:00.

But here on Eigg there is a polling place and many people here say

:18:01.:18:06.

they really relish the opportunity to cast their vote by hand.

:18:07.:18:09.

I am the Presiding Officer, so my responsibility is to make

:18:10.:18:14.

sure that the whole process is done properly.

:18:15.:18:19.

We have a very fun time, we just prepare sandwiches, flasks,

:18:20.:18:21.

and our neighbours further down the road bring us some ice creams.

:18:22.:18:28.

Charlie Gally is the only taxi driver on the island.

:18:29.:18:31.

He hasn't seen any election campaigning when driving around

:18:32.:18:40.

How do you feel about that, do you feel left out?

:18:41.:18:44.

I think the people that come to your door just make

:18:45.:18:49.

You have already made up your mind what you're going to do.

:18:50.:18:53.

You don't need somebody coming knocking on your door and taking up

:18:54.:18:56.

There is power here at the local level.

:18:57.:18:59.

It is 20 years since the people bought out the island,

:19:00.:19:01.

So how close do they feel to the parliaments where

:19:02.:19:05.

Edinburgh feels a long way away and Westminster even more so.

:19:06.:19:11.

Because of the community buyout 20 years ago,

:19:12.:19:15.

we feel a lot more conscious that people can affect change

:19:16.:19:18.

And so I think people here are more politically engaged.

:19:19.:19:31.

While it can feel very distant here from the frenzy of the campaign

:19:32.:19:34.

on parts of the mainland, islanders are determined to make

:19:35.:19:36.

sure their voice is heard when it comes to this election.

:19:37.:19:39.

Lorna Gordon, BBC News, on the Isle of Eigg.

:19:40.:19:51.

Well, let's speak again to our panel of pundits, Stephen Paton,

:19:52.:19:54.

online Editor of The National, the author and journalist

:19:55.:19:56.

Katie Grant, and Jenni Davidson from Holyrood magazine.

:19:57.:20:05.

Katie, a quick word on the idea of all the issues devolved to Scotland

:20:06.:20:12.

featuring so heavily in this campaign. Has that been confusing

:20:13.:20:18.

for voters? I think it is, even though we have had devolution for a

:20:19.:20:22.

long time. I think it is partly because a general election by its

:20:23.:20:26.

very term sounds as if it should affect all of us. What has Jenny

:20:27.:20:30.

referred to earlier, some of the spending plans don't really affect

:20:31.:20:37.

Scotland. So Webber wins enough MPs back in Westminster, we are still

:20:38.:20:41.

very much a powerful, devolved government. What the SNP are hoping

:20:42.:20:46.

to focus on is that, and quite rightly, is that they are a very

:20:47.:20:50.

strong voice at Westminster if they can return MPs. It is not just a

:20:51.:20:54.

question of them returning MSP is, this election does matter to

:20:55.:20:58.

Scotland in a very particular way. And in the same way to Wales and

:20:59.:21:01.

very particularly to Northern Ireland at the moment. Let's talk

:21:02.:21:07.

about opinion polls. We have learned recently of listening to the polls

:21:08.:21:10.

too much. What do you think people are doing this time in terms of

:21:11.:21:13.

treating them with a bit more caution? Yeah, I think people are

:21:14.:21:18.

right to be cautious around the polls. We were told we wouldn't have

:21:19.:21:22.

Brexit. We were told it would be a hung parliament. It is interesting

:21:23.:21:29.

to see this being something we are looking at again. I think people are

:21:30.:21:33.

very cautious but I think there are things you can read into the polls.

:21:34.:21:36.

Even if not necessarily what the outcome is going to be. For example,

:21:37.:21:41.

looking at the increasing support for the Labour Party over this

:21:42.:21:44.

campaign has shown there is an appetite, I would argue, for a

:21:45.:21:48.

different kind of policies from what the Conservatives are offering, or

:21:49.:21:50.

even historically Labour are offering. Jenny, how much you think

:21:51.:21:57.

the politicians are watching the polls? I think they're watching them

:21:58.:22:00.

very closely. The saw that in the last couple of days. The change of

:22:01.:22:04.

from Nicola Sturgeon from opposing the Tories to really trying to woo

:22:05.:22:17.

Lib Dem and Labour voters. It alters the way they behave in campaign as

:22:18.:22:25.

well. Yeah. Today she was saying SNP, it was quite extraordinary, SNP

:22:26.:22:31.

MPs would be closer to Jeremy Corbyn than Scottish Labour once was. If

:22:32.:22:35.

you supported Labour, you should vote SNP. Thank you all for coming

:22:36.:22:37.

in. Once we get to polling day,

:22:38.:22:39.

broadcasters are restricted in what they can say

:22:40.:22:41.

until the polls close. Then we'll have a special programme

:22:42.:22:44.

with all the results, here on BBC One Scotland with Glenn

:22:45.:22:46.

Campbell. So what preparations

:22:47.:22:48.

are being made for the big night? It has been an election campaign

:22:49.:23:00.

like no other, and tomorrow it reaches a conclusion. Scotland's

:23:01.:23:05.

biggest camp will be at the Emirates arena in Glasgow. Here and counting

:23:06.:23:09.

locations from Orkney to Dumfries, final preparations are under way for

:23:10.:23:15.

the long night ahead. Up to 4 million Scots are eligible to vote

:23:16.:23:20.

spread across 59 constituencies. The first declaration expected around

:23:21.:23:25.

2am. Here at BBC Scotland, final preparations are under way for the

:23:26.:23:28.

overnight election results programme. It kicks off at 9:55pm. A

:23:29.:23:34.

key moment comes five minutes later when voting closes and the results

:23:35.:23:37.

of the exit election poll revealed on the big screen behind me. That

:23:38.:23:42.

will be the start of 11 hours of gruelling coverage with cameras at

:23:43.:23:45.

all the key counts. Glenn Campbell will be in the hot seat overnight

:23:46.:23:48.

bringing you the results as they happen. With expert analysis from

:23:49.:23:54.

political expert Brian Taylor and reaction from politicians. We will

:23:55.:24:00.

be covering not just the 59 constituencies in Scotland, but of

:24:01.:24:03.

course all the big results from across the UK as we move towards a

:24:04.:24:07.

final result and find out who is going to be Prime Minister, who is

:24:08.:24:09.

going to form the next UK government. Of course, Theresa May

:24:10.:24:13.

called this election in the hope of increasing her majority from 12 to a

:24:14.:24:19.

much greater number. There has been a narrowing in the UK wide opinion

:24:20.:24:23.

polls as we move towards the end of this campaign. So there might be

:24:24.:24:27.

some nervousness on the part of the Conservatives about how the result

:24:28.:24:32.

will go. In just over two years, Scotland has been to the polls four

:24:33.:24:37.

times. Tomorrow we do it all over again. Good news for election

:24:38.:24:43.

pundits. Returning officers. And the manufacturers of small pencils on

:24:44.:24:44.

bits of string. Now, our pets may not

:24:45.:24:45.

have the right to vote tomorrow, but that doesn't stop them

:24:46.:24:47.

from getting their paws down Dogs at polling Stations has become

:24:48.:24:50.

a popular hashtag in So much so that its been now been

:24:51.:24:53.

given its own emoji. Good evening. If you cast your mind

:24:54.:25:18.

back to yesterday, it was very tunnel. Plenty of rain. But today,

:25:19.:25:24.

quite the opposite. Chalk and cheese. Wall-to-wall sunshine. The

:25:25.:25:29.

rain will become confined to the Northern Ireland tonight. The

:25:30.:25:33.

pressure chart. We have got a front crossing the country at the moment,

:25:34.:25:37.

introducing patchy rain in southern Scotland. In the north we hold onto

:25:38.:25:41.

dry weather. Tomorrow morning it will be sunny and it will be quite

:25:42.:25:46.

chilly as well. It predominantly dry start. Some patchy rain in the far

:25:47.:25:51.

south. Sunshine in the North. Eventually the sun will come through

:25:52.:25:55.

over seven. Temperatures around about ten to 12 Celsius. It will be

:25:56.:26:00.

a mild, cloudy start to the day. The further north you are, colder.

:26:01.:26:06.

Temperatures not far off freezing. Across the far north, plenty of

:26:07.:26:09.

sunshine first thing. Bright enough for a Shetland. That rain gets its

:26:10.:26:14.

act together, pushing and across southern Scotland, extending through

:26:15.:26:19.

the central lowlands through the day. It is a different wind

:26:20.:26:24.

direction. The winds are coming from the south, not the north. The rain

:26:25.:26:28.

will be driving in across northern Aberdeenshire as much as we saw

:26:29.:26:33.

today and did yesterday. As for the rest of the UK, weather fronts all

:26:34.:26:37.

over the place. Every thundery showers for Northern Ireland. Some

:26:38.:26:41.

showers for the west of the UK. A rather cloudy affair generally

:26:42.:26:46.

across much of England and Wales. It gets warmer in the South in the

:26:47.:26:50.

afternoon. Back in Scotland temperatures eventually rising to

:26:51.:26:55.

around 17 Celsius in the south. It will feel cold -- cool. The rain

:26:56.:27:00.

moves north as we had through tomorrow evening. It becomes

:27:01.:27:05.

confined to the far north. A ridge of high pressure starts to build in

:27:06.:27:08.

for Friday. Not too bad

:27:09.:27:09.
