Campbell Martin

Campbell Martin is a member of the National Union of Journalists and the Association for Scottish Public Affairs.

A former Member of the Scottish Parliament, Campbell now writes on politics, current affairs and public affairs.  In addition, he edits, an online local newspaper covering the three North Ayrshire towns of Ardrossan, Saltcoats and Stevenston, and provides consultancy on Scottish politics and public affairs.

Formerly secretary to the SNP Cabinet and Whips Administrator to the SNP Scottish Parliamentary Group (2000-2003), Campbell was expelled from the party after leading the movement which brought to an end the unsuccessful leadership of John Swinney MSP.  Subsequently, Mr Swinney's resignation paved the way for Alex Salmond to return as leader, which led, in May 2007, to the SNP winning the Scottish Parliament Election and forming the government of Scotland. 

Sitting as an Independent MSP (2004-2007) Campbell worked closely with Margo MacDonald, another former SNP MSP.
