It’s tough work winning a parliamentary election

Just watched “Make Me An MP”  a documentary following John Smeaton, who was a bit of a hero in Glasgow after his efforts in preventing a terrorist attack in Glasgow airport in 2007, efforts to be an MP in the recent Glasgow East Bye Election. Despite being recognisable with lots of interest and kind words from the public he only mustered 258 votes, finishing 8th out of 13 candidates. Was slightly surprised he didn’t do a bit better but I know he didn’t work half as hard as other candidates are doing for other seats, but more on that tomorrow
