THIS time next week Scottish Labour will have a new leader. One which will inherit the unenviable task of trying to build the party back up and ensure it can compete with the SNP at the next Scottish Parliament general election.

Sarah Boyack, Neil Findlay and Jim Murphy are the three contenders for the position. Murphy is the clear favourite but Findlay’s left-wing outlook makes him an intriguing dark horse when it comes to voting time.

The voting will take place on Wednesday, December 10, a day which, regardless of result, will be one of the most important in Scottish Labour history.
