 Description
"The electoral picture in the Central Scotland region appears to be one of almost unrelieved uniformity. Labour won every seat at both the 1992 and 1997 general elections and almost certainly recorded the largest number of votes in each constituency at the 1994 European Parliament elections too. In only one seat, Kilmarnock and Loudoun, is the partyís majority over the universally second-placed SNP less than 30%. Nonetheless, there have been danger signs for the party. The Labour-dominated North Lanarkshire council - which covers five of the regionís constituencies - has been in the teeth of allegations about local authority corruption, and Labour suffered a 1998 local by-election defeat at the hands of the SNP following a 32% swing. Voter reaction of that level of intensity could seriously dent Labourís representation in the Scottish parliament."
