Moray
Scottish National Party hold

Constituency Profile by Robert Waller
All the present Scottish National Party MPs have won seats in the Holyrood Parliament and will be migrating there full time, leaving Westminster at the next general election; all, even members of the Ewing dynasty, are likely to be able to hand these seats on though, to fresh faces from their party, especially in their more established seats like Moray, on the north east coast not far from Inverness.

Personality Profile by Byron Criddle
Angus Robertson, is the SNP’s new candidate here as Margaret Ewing leaves to concentrate on the Scottish Parliament. He was born (in London) in 1969, educated at Broughton High School, Edinburgh and at Aberdeen University, where he studied politics and international relations. A former journalist, he currently works as European policy adviser to the SNP group in the Scottish Parliament, to which he failed to get elected as candidate for Midlothian in 1999. He has attacked Liberal Democrat Scottish agriculture minister Ross Finnie for neglecting his duties in Europe.
