Lothian List Placings

The order the Liberal Democrat candidates for the top up list for next year's election in the Lothian region have been counted and verified and the placings are:

1. Mike Pringle MSP
2. Simon Clark
3. Gill Cole-Hamilton
4. Mike Crockart
5. Charles Dundas
6. Jacqui Bell
7. Derek Young

Quite a could wealth of experience and committment on that list. A good team to be going out to challenge for seats in Lothian.

As one of the above stated on their election literature 100 years ago the Lothian region was largely represented by Liberals. Ironically the only seat we did not hold in the year of the Campbell Bannerman landslide was Edinburgh West now one of the safest Lib Dem seats in the country.

Now it is two in Holyrood and we'll just have to see what happens in the others next May.

Hi, Stephen. Do you know if the Central Scotland list result is out?

Stephen Glenn said...

It has been counted Will it's just that I was interested in this one. I'll see if I can find out for you.

From what I hear, Hugh O'Donnell is first & Siobhan Mathers is second on the list. But I don't have any confirmation yet, & I don't know the other placings.

I would say that any constituency MSP who puts him or herself forward for their regional list thinks they are going to lose their seat, and any party that then puts them top of their list concurs with them and are clearly expecting an electoral disaster, and as a voter in Edinburgh South I would agree with all of them.

If Pringle loses his seat but takes a single regional list seat I will personally go round and slap him, if Simon hasn't killed him first (economists can be vicious).
