Better Blue

Better blue than indyref2

The branch office Labour party in Scotland has thrown up two leadership candidates, Anas Sarwar and Richard Leonard, who are both competing to show just how aligned they are to Tory policy on Scottish independence: both would prefer to have Tory Governments at Westminster governing Scotland against its will rather than a Labour Government in an independent Scotland.

Their new mantra is, ‘better blue than indyref2′.

Had Labour embraced Scottish independence prior to 2014,  they could well have found themselves in Government at Holyrood just now.

Ironically, however, having taken such a trenchant stance against it, and by continuing to do so now, any reasonable chance they had of forming a Government in an independent Scotland has probably been sacrificed for many years.
