The SNP has tonight selected its candidate for the Glenrothes by election. He is Peter Grant, the leader of Fife Council.
Labour is having difficulty finding a candidate to fight this by-election. So far, three leading candidates have said thanks, but no thanks.
* Henry McLeish (ex-MP and MSP in Fife and First Minister).
* Christine May (ex-MSP for the area, lost her seat in 2007).
* Alex Rowley (Labour leader on Fife Council, ex-Secretary of the Labour Party in Scotland, and a Brown protege - think Douglas Alexander and add an extra "Fife" dimension).
It shows just how desperate things have become when Labour can't find a candidate for a seat with a five figure majority.
UPDATE: Just for your info, the BBC finally reported this story at 9.31, over an hour after I posted it. Is that really the best it can do? I know it's August, but even so.
