Scottish Local Elections 2012: And the rest...

When I started this project, I aimed to write up a preview for every single local council election in Scotland.  Unfortunately, the night before the election, I have still only covered about half of the wards across Scotland.  It's been a fun experience, and I've learned a lot for my future blog projects, but in order to provide some closure (and the chance for some prediction analysis after the results are in) I'm providing my remaining predictions on a whole council-by-council basis only below.
