If he wants to be an MP - and I agree, he&#39;d make a good one - he needs to resign as an MSP as soon as he is elected. <br /><br />Moreover, it won&#39;t be a bad thing for the party. Put someone energetic in for a Scottish Parliament by-election and holding the moral high ground will probably work in our favour.LChttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10774196802469087593noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-61532370312507234512009-08-19T16:06:28.524+01:002009-08-19T16:06:28.524+01:00Lamont will not have my vote if he continues to pl...Lamont will not have my vote if he continues to plan to keep both jobs if he wins.

How come Holyrood is no longer good enough for him?<br /><br />It looks like he didn&#39;t really want to be elected in 2007, which calls into question everything he said during that campaign?<br /><br />How can he have any sort of credible with the people of the Borders? They already have a good, full time MP - they don&#39;t need someone who&#39;s going to spend half the week in London and half in Holyrood. <br /><br />We all know Salmond doesn&#39;t care about Westminster, but what happens if there&#39;s important votes in Holyrood and Westminster at the same time?Caronhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04988201531739344840noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-25244066444940075452009-08-18T15:15:33.314+01:002009-08-18T15:15:33.314+01:00Interesting.
