And 22 parties contesting the Glasgow region lists.

Nice to see the CPGB still hoping for success.
Some even more obscure splinter of splinter groups.

For a chap of my age there's a Scottish Democrats Party whose SDP logo looks identical to the one flown by Dr Death, Bill. Woy and Shirley all those years back.


I'll maybe drop by later for some musings on the D'Hondt system for electing list candidates.
9 parties is a lot for a regular election.

Only place I know that often gets more than that is Hackney. You get ultra leftists, Christians, independents and on one occasion the 1989 Liberals, who wouldn't except the merger with the SDP. Strangely, only 6 candidates in 2019 though.
