Jonah Brown Curses Dundee Labour Party

In his speech last Friday to Labour’s Scottish conference in Dundee, Gordon made a toe-curling and very laboured joke:

“As you know I’m not long back from Washington DC and I said the people there that I couldn’t stay long because I was off to Dundee, They asked, Dundee Michigan, Dundee Illinois or Dundee Oregon?

Not now it hasn’t. In a council by-election held yesterday and counted today, Labour lost control of the council.
