Tories Name Candidate!!!

With just over 3 weeks to go to the Livingston by Election the Tory party were the 8th or possibly 9th party to indicate the name of their candidate for the Livingston by election. The reason for the confusion is that the Socialist Party of Great Britain have also indicates they will stand a candidate.

However the Tory candidate is Gordon Lindhurst who was their candidate for Linlithgow in 2001 and the 2003 Scottish Parliamentary election. This means that Alison Ross has the unfortunate distinction of being the only candidate bar the deceased not to represent her party again only four short months later in the by election.

The list of paties currently in the running: Labour, Liberal Democrat, SNP, Tory, Scottish Socialist, Green, UKIP, Socialist Party of Great Britain and The Common Good. More may yet emerge.
