 Description
"Glasgow provides the perfect illustration of why a Scottish Parliament hoping to be seen as legitimate by all sections of the community had to be elected by other than simple first past the post. In both the 1992 and 1997 general elections Labour won all ten seats in Glasgow, leaving some four in ten voters feeling that their visit to the polling booth had been wasted. The SNP will be a threat to Labour in the still divided Govan constituency, and the nationalists could also win four of the seven ‘top up’ seats if their share of the total vote in the city reaches 25%. Both the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats are likely to secure representation in Glasgow for the first time in decades thanks to the Additional Member System. Nor should the Scottish Socialist Alliance be completely discounted. In the 1994 European Parliament elections Tommy Sheridan came third and would have won a ‘top up’ seat."
