Scottish Christian Party


The recently-formed Scottish Christian Party under the leadership of Rev. George Hargreaves is gearing up to field candidates in the forthcoming (2007) Scottish elections. The party is asking voters to 'Put your cross where the Cross is.'



SCPMost readers of the Christians Together web site will be aware that towards the back end of last year a new party appeared on the Scottish political landscape.
The Scottish Christian Party (SCP) has grown out of an organisation called Operation Christian Vote which fielded a candidate in the last General Election in the Western Isles.

The leader of the party is (Rev.) J George Hargreaves; and Mr. Hargreaves was interviewed last November on camera (courtesy of HCVF Television). The audio track of this 45 minute interview is available elsewhere on this web site.

During the interview brother Hargreaves stated that there will probably be two partys with the word “Christian” in their party name. The other being the “Christian Peoples Alliance”. The CPA has an “open membership” policy; to include people of all faiths or none.
Under the Scottish sytem of proportional representation, small parties have a good chance of gaining seats. Refering to the SCP logo, Hargreaves’ call to voters is to: “Put your cross where the Cross is.”

The SCP is fielding candidates throughout Scotland; and the top on the Highlands and Islands list is Mr. Murdo Murray - a 51-year-old consultant engineer and former Technical Director with the Western Isles Council. Meanwhile Dr. Sheila McLaughlan of the Church of God (Inverness) is to stand as a candidate elsewhere in Scotland.

In the Highland and Islands area, (Dr.) Donald Boyd has taken up the role of Campaign Manager; and is assembling a team to work with him.
Premises have been made available to the SCP team at the offices of Graeme Fraser (Inverness)

The SCP is hoping to send party workers up to the Highlands and Islands just prior to the elections on 3 May. If anyone is in a position to offer accommodation to these workers, they should get in touch with Dr. Boyd.

"This page needs radical updating"

Seems that if SCP are to make any real progress that it is not just this page that needs updating!!!!

(1) "A new Scottish Executive Committee was formed on 30/10/2010"

(2) "with details of its recent annual conference here"

(1) - How democratic and transparent was the process?
(2) - Really? How many attended and how well advertised was it Scotland wide?
