Shadow Deputy Leader of the House and Scottish Labour MP Thomas Docherty couldn’t have timed these comments on Wato any better to help out his leader:

“The state that the Labour party is in right now is we are in a dreadful position. And we’ve got to be honest about ourselves. We have very low esteem with the electorate. The electorate looks at us and has no idea what our polices are. We have a moribund party in Scotland that seems to think that infighting is more important than campaigning. And we have a membership that is ageing and inactive. We can return to be the grown-up party that wants to be in government or we can self-indulge like a throwback to the 1980s and watch our party implode, the SNP win again, the Tories win again, and have another referendum.”

Hope Ed enjoys his fundraising dinner with Scottish Labour in Glasgow tonight…
