Must we!?! Any mention of voting yet again has the majority of folk I know wishing there was a support group for folk suffering from a chronic overdose of elections, or trying to see if they can find their Prozac.

Its good to see that there are a large number of candidates. I would rather see a by-election where the public have to make their choice, as against someone gets in because no one else was interested. At least the outcome of this vote should be accepted by all, although I see there is an snp candidate, so we might have to have another vote if they dont like the outcome ;-)

Luckily, we get to have regular votes if we don't like the outcome or if circumstances change. It's kinda core to democracy ;-)
