No! to an election

Speaking to a senior Labour Party activist last night, he was strongly opposed to an election being called just now. In his view it was too manufactured, and too obviously political, rather than any genuine desire for a vote.

Two months ago, it could have been sold as a genuine wish to have a mandate, but not now.

Despite the obvious desire to select a candidate asap, he was not keen on traipsing around the doors this soon after the Scottish Parliamentary elections, and I suspect the entire WI Labour Party may be suffering from torpor after two defeats, and the 'lucky' winner of the selection contest will have a major task in rebuilding morale amongst the wider membership.

does this mean that ABM will be the last MP for the Western Isles as the boundary commission will probably tag us in with another constituency?
