Friends and readers.
We at Pilton Sucks enjoy a sporting wager and to that end we offer up the runners and riders for the Edinburgh North and Leith constituency as the holder of this seat, our good friend and regular sucks reader Malcolm Chisholm has all but announced he will be stand down come the next Scottish Parliamentary elections.
Malcolms imminent announcement will kick start a furious blood and guts race to grab the Nomination. At this point we have to say that our mate Malcolm is well thought of and will in human terms be a hard act to follow.
So let’s have a little fun and speculate who might be a candidate or emerge as the official candidate with a wafer thin majority to defend. One name comes out immediately and that of course is our old friend and regular sucks reader, Harvey Nics account holder and designer darling Lesley Prada Hinds. Now it’s commonly known within the comrades closeted world that there is no love lost between Malcolm and Prada, but there’s no stopping our Lesley and a mere detail like that will only make her more determined to bring a curtain down on all her other parliamentary losses and try and bag a potential winner. Pilton Sucks makes Lesley’s chances at 4-1
Next up we have Leith Councillor and another sucks reader Gordon Munro. Privately Gogsie is frustrated at being overlooked for the heady heights of Holyrood and is bound to be a runner in this race. Apart from some slimy activities gogsie must fancy his chances and we offer our mate at 7-2
Next up is our good friend Cammy cuddly Day. Cammy is the new Forth ward dog fouling Czar and what more do you need on your CV than that of dog shit supremo. Cammy is ambitious and that’s good but he will have to contend with Pradas wrath and that may be a nomination to far. Cammy is quietly building himself ground support and we have to say with his showing at the local elections he must be in with a shout. We offer our dog fouling Czar at 5-2 and early market favourite.
Of course there may be more comrades interested in this soon to be vacated seat and with that we add that our odds may fluctuate from time to time. We also add that ala Alex Ferguson Malcolm may have a say in who gets the nomination. There are a few hurdles left in this race yet.
