This is 1 of 2 images, with title Threemiletown in this square
Small village deep in oil country. Once surrounded by mines. Posters amongst the miner's cottages for the Livingston by-election. The by-election was caused by the death of Robin Cook on Ben Stack in Sutherland. Hardly anyone turned up to vote and yet another "Labour" victory in Central Scotland.
Update Feb 2011. The victor in that by-election is currently standing trial for false accounting over his expenses claims. He is no longer an M.P.
