Political Betting.com is a very busy site which often gets more visits than the likes of the political bloggers Guido and Iain Dale. The site is looking to the next General election and has done an article about the seven Highlands and Islands seats. Not much hope for Danny Alexander if their prediction turns out to be right. A few more pictures next to the A96 with Graham Marsden should sort it. Even if Alexander is toast at the next election, the Gurn predicts a bright future for our other well known LibDem, Councillor Marsden.
The article states:
'Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey: (LD) won back from Labour in 2005, Danny Alexander is not a great performer in contrast to the SNP’s Fergus Ewing at Holyrood. Once Scotland’s only 4-way marginal this is really now likely to be an SNP-LibDem dogfight and I expect the SNP to take this in 2010 unless Alex Salmond has become public enemy No 1. '
