The Herald headline above fails to finish off with the dire prospects for Labour if they join with the Tories again to deny Scotland a second independence referendum.
The evidence is staring them in the face.
For some time now, opinion polls have put them down in 3rd place with support declining all the time and both the Tories and SNP pulling away from them. The Opinium poll on 26th March had them at 8%!
And they think strong opposition to Indyref2 is the answer?
In August 2019, an Ashcroft poll suggested 40% of Scottish Labour voters support independence and a national majority is in favour of Indyref2.
Multiple polls have support for independence too close too call with some putting support up at 53%.
Several expert commentators make it ‘all but inevitable’.
Why will the New Blairites support this strategy? Yes, because there’s only one voice they get to hear, all the time, and Ian Murray is utterly out-of-it.
