In the Herald today:
Scottish Labour will go into next year’s Holyrood election opposed to a second independence referendum, its leader Richard Leonard has confirmed.
You have to admire their principles if not their brains as they stand against the tide of public opinion.
With the last 4 polls putting them third, behind the Tories even in a time of Boris, averaging 15% and with their leader trusted by only 6%, they’re going with the same old, same old.
Not only are they perilously weak, but in February, 31% of their supporters said Yes to an independent Scotland in a YouGov poll.
With nearly two-thirds of their supporters approving of the First Minister, that may now be even higher.
