|Isla O'Reilly of the Scottish Green Party, one of several speakers outside the Courthouse yesterday morning|
Yesterday the Nairn Yes Alliance had a range of speakers at a wee rally outside the Courthouse, there were short contributions from the Scottish Socialist Party, the Scottish Green Party, the SNP, Youth Alliance, Women for Independence and the Common Weal, Independent MSP John Finnie also took to the crate for a moment or two. 40 bags of donations to the local foodbank were collected from those attending and a local business also made a large cash donation that brought a simultaneous cash collection for the foodbank up to £120. Video of the speeches here (note sound and camera get sorted one minute into video).
The SNP are still selecting a candidate to stand against Danny and that process alone is playing out to packed hustings meetings across the Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey constituency and images have been published on line here of one of those meetings in Inverness. Undoubtedly politics will kick off to a flying start in this area early in January and will not slow down until 10.00 p.m. on May 7th.
