Edinburgh South West Labour Party last night. A lull in parliamentary business and the fact that he is now a back bencher meant Alistair Darling was able to attend. He was in good form and answered numerous questions on his parliamentary Report which sparked some good debate on issues as wide ranging as Youth Unemployment, Local Government Finance and the Alternative Vote referendum.
This weekend's campaigning is concentrated in Currie and Balerno, meeting at the Scout Hut at the end of Currievale Drive here , 11am on Saturday and 1pm on Sunday. If anyone would like to help they would be more than welcome. Weather forecast isn't very promising but if I know Labour activists we'll bash on regardless !
