scottish conservatives resignation?

jamie sempill has resigned as candidate for edinburgh central, or is that just a rumour?

check out his site on

update 1347; confirmed. scottish conservatives candidate for edinburgh central, jamie sempill, has resigned, though scco don't seem in a hurry to tell anyone. thoughts on who his replacement will be? i can't think of any local councillors for that area and the party is strongest in the south and west so no local choice from there.

Am I right in assuming that this means he's off the Lothian list as well?

chief Y is a vowel campaigner said...

to my understanding, yes.

to my understanding only candidates can be on the list; whereas with labour you can be on the list without being a candidate.

i would be very surprised if he was still on the list.
