225,000 March to Make Poverty History

Today I went on the Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh along with 224,999 others. I was part of the Liberal Democrat contingent headed up by our new Scottish Party Leader Nicol Stephen and his family.
A number of other parliamentarians both from Westminster and Holyrood also turned up to march. Over 200 Liberal Democrats from all over the country were present.

The picture shows me with Charles Dundas my fellow West Lothian candidate from the recent election, who stood for Livingston.
I hope this show of strength as Edinburgh was encircled in white for a number of hours has some impact on the G8 leaders at Gleneagles later this week.
