Mornings in Campaign HQ

Morning at Campaign HQ and the doors are open for business

The Mastermind behind the by-election (and my boss which bears no relation to my description of him), Chief Executive Peter Murrell

Superwoman Lorraine Reid - Campaign Services Manager at SNP HQ, mother of 4 children, keeper of lots of animals and jogger of several miles each morning before driving from Stirling to Glasgow for the by election!

Campaign Co-ordinator Anne McLaughlin sees the Saltire as an omen!

Head of Press Liz Lloyd checking the morning papers

Agent Hunter checking there's enough work for our campaigners

This man, Cllr Jim Finn from Clydebank, was a superstar in the by-election on a daily basis

The sign in sheets are ready for the onslaught

Colin and Davina McKellar - 2 of our constants. I mean throughout the history of the Party, not just this by election

Campaign faces

A hard earned ice cream for the YSI (Young Scots for Independence)!
Cool dude Humza (that's what he calls himself)!

Anne and Richard from Springburn SNP.

Euan Lloyd frae Edinburgh.

Ca - ca - ca - Carla!

Which British Prime Minister is Angus McNeill reporting to the polis this time?

Back from Canada it's Caz!

Alasdair Allan MSP - did he get that tan on the Western Isles?

Cathcart Councillor James Dornan bumped into the Sunday Post's Campbell Gunn at a press call.

Clydebank Councillor Jim Finn was happy to meet fellow Bankie, the actor James Cosmo!

You can get up too early on a Sunday

Which political party in this Glasgow East by election, started leafletting early on Sunday morning only to leave a complete mess behind them? A man in Baillieston had just painted his 3 front doorsteps when the ****** party popped their leaflets through his door and left a trail of white paint all the way to the next door neighbours. Not the way to win friends and influence people is it?

Shiny happy faces

Anne from Shettleston is a big fan of James Cosmo so was delighted to meet him.

Carolyn from the Southside - you know, that place the Labour candidate lives in despite saying she lived in the East End!

Bob frae Baillieston.

The ever glam Gail originally from Newton Mearns but heading for Singapore for a week!

The super trendy (so he tells us) Stuart McDonald from the Southside of Glasgow.

And finally, Westminster candidate and North Lanarkshire Councillor Clare Adamson with son Aidan!
