Prediction:
Despite First Minister Alex Salmond stepping aside to concentrate on his Scottish Parliament duties, expect the seat to remain with the SNP – as it has since 1987 when (a much younger and less portly) Alex Salmond was first elected to serve as MP for the constituency. Conservatives to show well in second, probably increasing their share of the vote slightly, while the Lib Dems and Labour scrap for third. SNP HOLD
