Scottish Labour is starting to collapse as a new YouGov poll shows Scottish Labour have fallen to fourth place in Scotland for the first time ever.
This is why Jeremy Corbyn is ready to do a deal with Nicola Sturgeon. He’s given up on Scotland. Scottish Labour are a shell of their former selves. They simply don’t have the strength or will to stand up to Sturgeon.
This news comes as Scottish Labour’s candidate in Edinburgh South-West has dropped out over comments about SNP MP Joanna Cherry. Their candidate in Gordon has stepped down over anti-Semitic comments.
Former adviser to Gordon Brown, Ian Austin, has told voters that after a lifetime of voting Labour he will now vote Conservative. Tom Harris, a former MP and stalwart of Scottish Labour, has urged people to vote Conservative. Annie Wells MSP has written an open letter to pro-Union Labour supporters asking them to put aside their differences and back the Scottish Conservatives this one time.
Sturgeon has made it clear this election is about her getting indyref2, and we know that Corbyn would cave in to her demands.
So on December 12, only a vote for the Scottish Conservatives will tell her again, we’re fed up of the SNP and we’re fed up hearing about indyref2.
