Perviously we'd asked if Danny Alexander's campaign launch this afternoon in Inverness would mention Nairn swimming Pool. Well Danny, being an avid Facebook user and Gurn reader, had heard about the protest at the pool this afternoon and turned up to speak to campaigners. Effectively Nairn Swimming Pool has become an issue for the General Election candidates in this constituency and Danny Alexander's real campaigning began three hours ahead of the official launch in the Highland Captial. He came in for some tough questioning about the Lib Dem stance on the Council but he offered his support to the campaign and promised to do all he could to influence the powers that be. A full statement is expected later.
Lots of members of the public, one MP, plenty of debate but no local Councillors were present this afternoon. More pictures available on the Gurn flickr pages.
