The SSP have decided at their conference (what do you mean, you missed it?!) that they're going to concentrate on the Regional vote in 2007, except where circumstances are favourable to a Consituency candidate. I'll be keeping my eye on some of the arguments used to justify an SSP Constituency candidate, of which there will no doubt be many, most of which will be hilarious. However, the rationale of the scheme (if it works) is that it might boost the SSP's Regional Vote performance, and give them more MSPs.

Of course, following Thursday's fiasco, it's not entirely clear that anyone will be able to get into the Parliament, seeing as the Tories spent Thursday morning with the Sword of Damocles hanging over their heads, and not for the first time.
