Well the Scotsman has scored their performances today and place Ian Robertson the Liberal Democrat ahead of Labour's Margaret Curran with Davena Rankin of the Tories and the SNP's John Mason propping up the rest.
Of Robertson the paper said:
Emerged as the surprise star of the show. He was effective, forthright and intervened sharply across his opponents. A no-hoper in this by-election – one to watch for the future. 9/10
It's a sad state of affairs that someone so effective is written off as a no-hoper but there is still time, even in this truncated election to get across the star that is the Lib Dem candidate. After all let's not forget the 24th July is still in the future.
