A Labour Party candidate has finally been found to contest the Livingston seat after the original candidate Rhea Wolfson quit in July.
The candidate selected is Caitlin Kane. Her Labour Policy Forum biography states that she is currently Almond Valley CLP’s campaigns coordinator and is a Communications Officer for Neil Findlay MSP. She states in her bio that she is ‘a proud socialist and trade unionist with a keen interest in the provision of housing and sustainable communities to address the housing crisis inflicted upon us by years of austerity.’
Meanwhile, the SNP launched their campaign today in Edinburgh. Seat favourite Hannah Bardell spoke to Sky News about the launch of the campaign and put her views forward as to why devolution isn’t good enough when the Conservatives ‘risk the NHS’.
