LABOUR’S days of “holding back Scotland” must be brought to an end at the 2015 General Election, according to First Minister-in-waiting Nicola Sturgeon.
I’m not sure erstwhile Labour voters need much encouragement from Nicola Sturgeon to vote SNP in next year’s UK elections. Only the most mindless party loyalist (Duncan Hothersall?) could possibly imagine that British Labour is fit to govern. They will be asking themselves exactly what Miliband and his fractious little gang have achieved in opposition. They will be asking themselves what kind of alternative British Labour offers.
Most of all, they will be asking themselves how their vote can be most effective. The referendum campaign has left people in Scotland with a strong sense of their political power. They will be reluctant to squander that power. They will be looking for the best way to shake up the British establishment. Being politically aware, they will inevitably conclude that a strong SNP presence at Westminster is what Scotland requires.
