>SNP lose another Glasgow North East hopeful

>The protracted SNP game of musical candidates continues in Glasgow North East. First the expected and obvious candidate Grant Thoms doesn’t even stand. Then Newsnight producer David Kerr resigns from his job to stand and gets beaten by the SNP Opposition Leader on Glasgow City Council, James Dornan by 5 votes. Given the Council’s unpopular school closures across the city, also opposed by the Liberal Democrats, this might have been a smart move.

Now Cllr Dornan has stood down after Sunday Herald revelations that he may have broken the law by being a partner director of a charitable trust, Culture and Sport Glasgow while under a protected trust deed which is an alternative to bankruptcy.

I think it’s a shame he’s been put in this position by the SNP. They should have checked all this out thoroughly before they allowed him to go for selection by the members. They shouldn’t have been checking if there was a potential problem when a newspaper points it out to them.

    >I'm not sure if contravening the Articles of Association of this body is quite the same as "breaking the law".There's a lot of loose talk surrounding this story.
