Grateful Dead

Euan MacInnes of Adam Lyal’s Witchery Tour Party, who stood in Lothian at the Scottish Parliamentary Elections on 3rd May 2007 in the guise of pale-faced phantom Adam Lyal (deceased), has produced a 4th film in his election series.

DEAD GOOD – ELECTION NIGHT 2007 is a short film produced as a thank you to the 867 people of Lothian who voted for him. This can be viewed on his MySpace site at

Euan’s vow – if elected – was to take his place in the Scottish Parliament’s debating chamber in a white face and black cloak, campaign for the minimum wage for MSPs, and donate his annual salary above the minimum wage to three local Lothian charities of his choice.

“I was bitterly disappointed not to be elected. I reckon that if there hadn’t been so many spoilt ballot papers, I might have received another 8 votes,” said Euan. “Mind you, 867 people wanted me to be their MSP, and I’d like to thank them all for making the effort to vote.
