Labour shift on independence

Hear that hollow 'clunk'? It's very clear and is resonating loudly in the empty vessel that purports to be the brain (and I use that word very loosely) of the Scottish Labour Party aka The Labour Party in Scotland.

It's the sound of a penny dropping.

Finally, the Labour Party have realised that insulting the intelligence of the Scottish public is not a smart political move, especially with senior political commentators lining up to undermine them at every turn. Undermining the innate ability of the voters was never a long-term sustainable tactic, and as soon as they lost the election they should have realised it was dead in the water.

Many voters support Independence and not the SNP; many voters support the SNP and not Independence; but running around telling the public that they were stupid when they voted on May 3rd is not just insulting but counter-productive.

The challenge for Labour is how to address the loss of power and how to rebuild the mythical 'bond of trust' that it believed existed for the past 50 years.

At the very least it is a fundamentally positive change for the better.
