MAKE IT INTO WALES
The hapless Richard Leonard has once again come up trumps (no pun intended) when it comes to the dafty stakes.
Making a video about the Scottish Labour ‘vision’ for Scotland (and the UK, although I find it hard to imagine why SCOTTISH Labour would have a vision for the UK), Mr Leonard talks over a picture of… Snowdonia.
Well, a mountain is a mountain is a mountain, I guess.
Maybe we should be grateful that they managed to avoid this:
The video, a set of aspirations, some of which the Scottish government has already achieved (not giving Tory tax breaks to the richest, and equality in wages just achieved by Glasgow’s SNP Council after years of Labor denying them…see below).
Many of the other aspirations could have been met by a Scottish government that had the power to regulate employment. But then, who was it that voted against the devolution of so many powers, remind me…? Hmmm… Surely not Labour?
As far as I can make out all the other locations in the video are in Scotland, so the excuse they came up with that Scottish Labour (with virtually no money) is making a video about the whole of the UK, isn’t terribly convincing.
Would it not have been better to admit that they made a silly error by including the Welsh mountains in a Scottish video?
No. It seems they prefer to do a Donald Trump and come up with a not too plausible story as a cover-up.
I bet, it’s just a shame it took removing Scottish Labour from office to make it happen.
Now Nicola, time to get on with nationalising Scottish water…
