SNP parliamentarian to speak at MK Conference in November

This year’s MK conference will take place over the weekend of the 19th and 20th November at the Shire House Suite in Bodmin. It is intended to be our best-ever annual get-together and to mark our 60th year in style.

The Saturday will include a Rally which will showcase MK members and a range of guest speakers, and in the evening there will entertainment for one and all to enjoy.
I can confirm that the first invited speaker to confirm his participation is Kenneth Gibson, a SNP member of the Scottish Parliament, who was formerly the leader of the opposition on Glasgow City Council.

He was first elected to the Scottish Parliament in 1999 as a list member for the Glasgow electoral region. In 2007, he contested the constituency of Cunninghame North, winning the seat from Labour by the small of 48 votes. In the 2011 SNP landslide election, when the SNP won 69 seats and an overall majority, Ken managed a comfortable majority of 6,117 over Allan Wilson, the former Scottish Minister he defeated in 2007.

Arrangement for the conference are being co-ordinated by MK councillor Stephen Richardson (Illogan) and we will make further information as soon as possible.
