A Sign of Things to Come?

Kate Maclean the Labour MSP for Dundee West has announced that she will not be seeking re-election next May. Her majority in 2003 was 1066 so maybe she is getting out after five successful election campaigns and representing parts fo Dundee for 19 years befoire she ends up with a metaphorical arrow in her eye. The seat is one of the most likely to fall to the SNP in May.

Meanwhile I have sized up the seven candidates for the Liberal Democrat Lothian list. I have been on the campaign trail with all seven of them at various points in the last 12 months and therefore had very little problem in ranking them before posting my ballot off. They are a very strong selection and hopefully we will have a significant share of the second vote to see some of them elected even if we do increase our number of constituency seats across the region.
