Scottish Liberal Democrats select Bruce Wilson for Edinburgh South West

The Scottish Liberal Democrats have selected Bruce Wilson as their candidate for Edinburgh South West at the forthcoming general election, whenever it is called. It must be called before 28 January 2025 according to parliamentary rules      

The former Royal Marines Commando Captain will fight the next General Election in a different constituency from the one he stood in last time in 2019. Then he was a candidate in the Edinburgh North and Leith constituency held by Deidre Brock with a majority of 12,808.

Now living and working in Balerno, Bruce works on safety technology aimed at supporting law enforcement agencies to catch paedophiles and safeguard children.

Bruce said: “I have campaigned locally for some time, and it is exhilarating to have the confidence of the local party in bringing the fight to both the Conservatives and SNP.

 “‘I am standing because I believe in community service, fighting for a fair deal and supporting people in the constituency. I know that we can win here and start the process of building an Edinburgh South West that works for everyone.”
