Candidates for Edinburgh South West
We are incredibly fortunate that so many new candidates - many of them extremely able - have come to the fore in the run-up to the General Election. The calibre and ability is amazing.
If anyone in Edinburgh South West is undecided about who should be selected as the candidate, the answer is that there is a range of good people to choose from.

For my "money", Simon Hayter is certainly someone who would be an able parliamentarian. He has been active in the SNP for about a decade and has worked in Holyrood. If you want to know more, then have a look at his website:
