Lib Dems to fight Salmond for Gordon seat

The Liberal Democrats have warned Alex Salmond he faces a tough fight to win the Gordon constituency at the general election.

Sir Malcolm Bruce, the incumbent MP, said Mr Salmond should not take anything for granted.

The Telegraph reports that Mr Salmond has refused to hand back a £65k taxpayer resettlement grant he received in 2010 when he stood down from Westminster.

Meanwhile, data from the British Election Study has suggested the Lib Dems may be facing a greater ‘wipeout’ of support that previously predicted, possibly leaving them with less than 20 MPs.


More select committee chairmen are to be announced today. Yesterday Liberal Democrat MPs Malcolm Bruce and Sir Alan Beith were elected unopposed as the chairmen of the International Development and Justice Select Committees respectively.
