I don’t think we need those inverted commas do we? I think we’re all agreed that the Deputy Labour Leader in Scotland revealed a dark and dim nature.

In the Times today:

Baillie is either clinically paranoid or is so desperate to gain ground by whatever means on the SNP, she thought this was a good idea.

She has previous.

In 2017, she imagined that Richard Leonard had been in a plot to oust Kezia Dugdale. Leonard’s press officer described her thinking as ‘jackie baillie pish.’
