Gail Sheridan to Throw Her Hat into the Ring
Gail Sheridan, the wife of Tommy Sheridan, is to stand for election as an MSP when Scotland goes to the polls in May.
She is planning to run as a candidate for the party founded by her husband.
In some ways I'm not surprised Mrs Sheridan has decided to enter into frontline politics. She already has experience from when she stood as the SSP candidate for Cardonald in 2003.
I wish her luck. From a purely subjective angle the more she can eat into the labour vote the better. George Galloway hasn't confirmed he will also stand but it was reported he believes he may only need 10,000 votes to get elected as an MSP on the Glasgow regional list.
