I suppose that someone has to say the obvious. I don't really feel like filling in *all* of the Glasgow seats today, but there isn't much of a chance that Labour's hegemony will be challenged anywhere, let alone in Baillieston.

Agreed. Highest in % council housing in all UK, highest in Scotland in 5 unemployed & % single parents (Almanac of British Politics 6ed) this is classic heartland. In 1999, new Labour vote was squeezed by SNP and the spiritual heirs of ILP, the Scottish Socialists. This year, old Labour stalwart Jimmie Wray MP should have no trouble retaining his hold on Ballieston.
