Scottish Labours Six Top Shots!

So six candidates have been confirmed in the race to become Leader and Deputy Leader of the Scottish Labour party. Tom Harris MP and MSPs Johann Lamont and Ken Macintosh. Deputy Leadership contenders are MPs Ian Davidson and Anas Sarwar, as well as MSP Lewis Macdonald.

One for the watching is Glasgow South’s own little cowboy, Tom Harris MP. Labour Party rule changes allowed Westminster MP Tom (Ban Blair-Baiting Petitioner) Harris to declare his interest in the campaign which had previously been restricted to MSPs.

Perhaps as Labour Leader Ed Miliband is desperately trying to promote a return to old Labour values, a staunch Blairit like Tom was no longer welcome at Westminster. At least he wont be making those £143,282 expenses claims if he secures the Scottish Leadership.

I’m sure the coming weeks and months will produce all manners of unexpected twists and turns, we will have to wait with baited breathe as the whole rodeo unfolds.

The last word then from the old 60’s western Support Your Local Sheriff! “He's got a heart as big as the whole outdoors, but he don't have one brain in his poor old head.”

Until the next time…
