|European Parliament constituency||Scotland|
Livingston is a county constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, to which it returns one Member of Parliament (MP). Elections are held using the first-past-the-post voting system.
It was formed from parts of traditional Midlothian and West Lothian for the 1983 general election. A similar constituency, also called Livingston, is used by the Scottish Parliament. In 2005 a small part of the Linlithgow constituency was moved into Livingston.
The constituency covers the eastern portion of the West Lothian council area, and is dominated by Livingston. It is bordered by the constituencies of Edinburgh West, Edinburgh South West, Dumfriesshire, Lanark and Hamilton East, Airdrie and Shotts, and Linlithgow and East Falkirk.
The Member of Parliament for this seat had been Robin Cook of the Labour Party since its creation in 1983. Following his death on 6 August 2005 a by-election was held on 29 September, and Jim Devine was elected. On 8 February 2010 Jim Devine was suspended from the Labour party after he was charged over the expenses scandal.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
