Labour is unused to (& deeply unhappy about) being out of power North and South of the border, let alone in most Scottish councils. I can see why. But, their only strategy for salvation appears to consist of pouring vitriol on their opponents’ ideas, since they have none of their own. Thirty years ago, such thinking led to decades of political wilderness. How, with a less loyal/more skeptical electorate and plenty of non-Labour alternatives making a refreshing fist of things, can they think that will work any better now?
Answers. please, on the back of a Labour manifesto (if you can find one)
