international and independent candidate.
Gordon Campbell is singular, like Tarbat Ness lighthouse, a symbol, a
beacon and a wake up call for us all.

Gordon Campbell who had dropped out after some bad personal
news has again re-entered the election trail. He has confirmed he
will be standing as candidate for the Scottish Parliament
26 February 03
Gordon Campbell or the the Caithness Capercaillie as he
refers to himself is after the Liberal Democrats.. His challenge to
the present holder of the seat comes in the form of an attack on the Lib
Dem policies. Over all of the years that they have been in power in the
north. listing all of the Liberals in the north from Archibald
Sinclair to Charles Kennedy he maintains they have done little and have no
vision and no fire.. He reckons people are already disillusioned
with the Scottish Parliament and that the Lib Dems have looked at a
Tourism Shambles.. He portrays himself as the Tourist Candidate and
emphasises his fluent German speaking and the promotion of the area he
hopes to do when he wins the seat.
