Spare a thought for the LibDems

Not the party, but for their candidate Elizabeth Riches. Her name did not turn into a prophesy of victory as the LibDem candidate fought what had looked to be a reasonably secure SNP seat. In the event she made a stunning dent in the SNP vote but failed by just 2 votes polling 13743 to the 13743 polled by SNP’s Stephen Gethins. That really must have been gut wrenching and I expect she had some choice feelings for the “Independent Sovereign Democratic Britain” candidate who polled just 224 but as it truns out, a rather vital 224 votes.
