Westminster In Utter Turmoil
Westminster In Utter Turmoil Now Alex has declared he’s running for Prime Minister at GE 2015.
He will contest the Gordon seat held by retiring Lib Dem MP Sir Malcolm Bruce.
Mr Salmond stood down as SNP leader and Scotland’s first minister after the “Yes” campaign was defeated in September’s independence referendum, we all know the referendum was engineered from Westminster via the three fairy story tellers and revenge will be all the sweeter.
He is expected to confirm his decision when he addresses a meeting in the constituency this morning.
There has been intense speculation that Mr Salmond would seek to return to Westminster ever since he announced he was stepping down as first minister we also knew it was his plan all along.
He currently represents the constituency of Aberdeenshire East in the Scottish Parliament and had indicated he would continue in that role.
At the 2010 general election Mr Bruce held the Gordon constituency in Aberdeenshire with a majority of 6,748 over the SNP.
BBC news correspondent Catriona Renton said there was an enormous amount of momentum behind the SNP since the independence referendum and Mr Salmond was likely to have a good chance in the Gordon seat and we stated this was his top pick on this website ages ago yet we had hoped he would have went after labours Anne Begg who has been disappointing at defending the sick and disabled at Westminster committees.
The PM jibe is to be taken in jest…..only kidding!…..after all we are not the Daily Record!
